For me, Cros is on the floor and he should be out of the game at that point anyway. I know that's now how it's reffed.

It was worth a yellow, no more.

What's more staggering is that it took him speaking to a decent referee (Barnes) before he made the right decision.

I think he actually started the last one on the outside shoulder x(

But that we aren't just jumping over the middle if the ref isn't going to be bothered to ref, then I don't know

Looked to me like he was stepping to the middle because the Scots were lined up on him.

You need to check your specs, you seem to be the only one not seeing it. He was even told not to do it and proceeded to do it again.

We are lining up so deep, by the time we ever actually breaking the line it will be 20 metres being the advantage line

France allowed to have hands in and slow the ball at will. Ref shouted "away" twice, player still didn't release. Play on. Seems legit.

The ref also said he'd move the Scots, who were lined up on the linesman and then didn't.

That's going to end with a broken neck. Peyper is the worst at allowing that to go unchecked.

Both teams doing what theyve done well so far, albeit atm France not as clinical as in previous.

Up to now after 3 and a bit games, Scotland's defence is better than the last 15 years of bollocks.

Nah he's right. Everyone is as bad as each other. No idea why it's not refereed though? Surely it'd be easy enough between TJ and ref.
