How did the one before that look? At the game it looked fine from the Crusaders but without the benefit of a tv angle, who knows.

So a Hurricanes player just blatantly tripped Whitelock but that's okay according to Egon Seconds?

Dumb and dumber from the Canes. Absolutely no counter ruck, which is very effective under these interpretations if you stay on you feet.

Stop your beating. It's just you lads getting used to the proper law interpretations, whereas the other teams had their blowout last week.
Wasn't there a similar penalty count last night?
Yes, but not as lopsided as last weeks swings and round a bouts. If you genuinely think the Saders are hard done by though ....
It was a more a comment that last night's teams didn't seem to have had their blowout given last night's count. Which was also quite lopsided for a while. Enough for IH to start trolling AC. And also 8-1 at one stage iirc. I don't remember if it even out though tbf.

Not sure about the breakdown rulings but I am all for stricter rulings on the off side line.

That will allow for greater space in the longer term.

Cheating C&^tabs. :lol:

I'm very happy for the offside line to be policed strongly. It's much less subjective. But the breakdowns are a mess right now and it's killing the game.

This is the 4th match in this tournament, and every game has been characterised by massive penalty counts. I'm trying to think why NZR decided that Super Rugby Aotearoa urgently needed the referees to officiate the breakdown to within an inch of its life. It's always been a Rugby truism that there is a penalty at every breakdown and at the moment that's exactly what's happening with this comp.
It's about time someone held the Sadists to account for their cynical gamesmanship...

For fucks sake, put a lock and a 1st 5 on.

Wasted opportunity. Never pressed their line once.


Oh shit, not that lock!

You could often ping both sides at any given breakdown. And more often than not it's a subjective timing issue, often with only a split second between something being ok or not. The only thing that really seems to have changed is that the ref is now picking one almost immediately without any allowance for that.

With a bit more of a flyhalf the Canes could be a good side.

No, but it’s week two I guess - it can only get better. Watching live I have no idea about some of the calls.
