Finding out he's due to bring through the next lot

Guess we'll still be waiting a while for an Irish ref to blow Clancy, Lacey and Fitzgibbon from our memories.

Alan Lewis. He got fired for giving a penalty against NZ.

Ronseal is a brand that makes things like exterior wood treatment etc. Their advertising line is "does what it says on the tin'

So therefore when the title of the thread is Lacey goooooooone and then a link is provided in the thread to a story about Lacey retiring from reffing this would be the same as "does what it says on the tin"?

It's basically entered I to English as a phrase that means something is self explanatory

Ie, I could start a thread entitled "trump is a cûnt", put a link in to any of his tweets and just type "ronseal"

Not my favourite ref but you need some balls just to put up with the uninformed tribalistic shite you get for doing the job

Best of luck to him. :thumbup:

Alan Lewis was an excellent ref.

Alain Roland was very good as well.

Saffers shouldn’t throw stones when they have Peyper ignoring player safety protocols and Joubert thrown out of the RWC after the Aus-Scotland quarter final.

I doubt he will be training refs he already has a job at Munster as a development officer being involved in delivering coaching courses. Peter Fitzgibbon and Dave McHugh run the ref development side of things.

Poite, with input from Garces, totally bottled the final moments of the Lions series last year. Romain “we have a deal” Poite made one of the most unusual, read bullshit, calls of the modern era.

We didn’t really grizzle a great deal about it collectively. We mainly marvelled at how absurd it was.

The importance of the call vs the fallout, I'd say the country has grown up somewhat. We like to mention it as it would likely be Defcon 1 had NZ benefitted in such a way.

Lacey is only retiring from international refereeing.

He’s still available to ruin your Heineken Cup games.

Clancy is underrated imo. Not a biased ref at all.

Of the French refs I like Gauzere, but he seems way down in the pecking order. Similarly, I always liked Mark Lawrence but Joubert was the golden boy.

There's a very good young ref in the Prem at the moment called Christophe Ridley who I'd expect to see doing internationals before long. So he probably won't.

Yes, the IRB picked the wrong Lawrence for the World Cup.

+2

Enjoyed him taking the piss during a Can v US match, but without the ‘look at me’ drama of Nige.

Always seemed level headed and fair.
