Because they can't be arsed to police it the whole game. The idea is that pinging something once makes everyone think twice about doing it, but it doesn't really work with feeding.

Re: Bath v Saints

This match shows just how much a team's gameplan changes based on the referee. As a late replacement, Carly pinged Saints off the park for holding on against Saracens. Usually they barely commit to the defensive ruck but today there's 3 there every time making sure the Bath backrow don't get a sniff.

Re: Bath v Saints

Foden hasn't been the same player since Ashton left Saints, but since he came back from his last injury he really has been woeful. He should still travel with England but frankly even Alex Goode is looking a much better bet to play at fullback in a test match than him. Foden carried on being good f...

Re: Bath v Saints

I'm usually a bit more optimistic about our chances, but head and gut say Bath by a little bit thanks to home advantage. Saints won't go very far at all at the back end of this season if we don't get the majority of Hartley, North, Corbisiero, Day and Dickson back in time to get some form. Foden rea...
