First of all Japan deserve to win this game but has there been a more disgraceful refereeing performance in RWC history?

One of the most one sided ref performances I’ve ever seen. That said, Japan played us off the pitch and fully deserved their win, well done.

Gardner looks to reward positive play. Japan worked their arses off to clear out of the rucks and not kill the play. Frankly. I prefer his style as opposed to the pedant.

Missed the Irish head high which should have been a card. Could have been a much bigger loss if not for this disgrace.

Does he bollocks.

He is horrendously inconsistent in his calls (look at the penalty Ireland got that Carberry slices vs the one Japan won when Ireland were attacking their line). He's simply a very poor referee.

Ireland were woeful, that's the big thing.

As I said on the match thread his performance today simply confirmed his dreadful outing for the ARG-FRA match.

He's just not a RWC level ref.

His reffing was so one sided it was hilarious. He will get away with it though because Japan were all over Ireland anyway and no one wanted those cunts to win anyway.

I'm just baffled he's refereeing at this level, or international level in general. He makes some of the shit ones in the Pro14 look brilliant.

Missed the japanese swinging arm to the head that forced Kearney off.

See two can play this game.

But the last scrum call really showed how shite he was. Earls knocked on because the Japanese player has hanging onto the ball on the ground.

Imagine 60mins without a penalty with 75% possession. Go and rewatch Cardiff in 07. I can’t.
