How can Weber be a starting 9? He refuses to kick and invites ALL the pressure on his 10..

Chiefs exits have been poor all night. That's down to coaching and selection.

Stupid stuff by Saders. 6 point lead at this stage would have been the right call.

Very low quality affair all around. Can’t say it’s first game rust, the Blues and Landers looked like rock stars last night

It is harsh on the defender as he has almost no target.

It was the only option in the laws but it is harsh

All the contact you want.. just not to the head. It's really not that difficult.

How can anyone defend that then ffs. The ref has no choice as things stand but they need to make that easier on refs

The law is the law.
Can’t blame the ref for enforcing them.

Laughable.
Basically if you go low into contact you aren't allowed to be tackled.

Penalty try and a yellow card for what was as good as a tackle as you could expect there.

Better off not even attempting a tackle...

Got to protect the head, not sure about the yellow though, that is harsh imo.

I'm a Crusaders fan but I think that was a ridiculously harsh call. I'd have been happy with just a penalty.
