Arm waving and gesturing

Post by Vuaka »

I thought that it was especially bad in the AB vs Lions game tonight, and seems to be generally getting worse in rugby. Normally the domain of the scrum half, more and more players seem to be flapping their arms around at the ref.

It's really annoying and one reason I don't watch soccer.

Perenara managed more than Smith and Murray combined, despite 15 mins on the pitch

Not the attitude I was told was required to be an AB

I don't give a shit and I'm surprised anyone else does. If you see a perceived indiscretion, you want the ref to see it too.

He even looked like he was about to burst into tears after NZ got that penalty for crossing :?

Maybe I'm just old fashioned. It used to be the captains that would have a word with the refs if there was an indiscretion.

Let the ref, the 2 x ARs and the TMO with all of their technology control the game.
