Harsh, but as it's a call that favors my team I'm going to say fair.

;)

And a lovely try as I type. :D

I'll take it back. Cant get away with slapping downwards at an intercept. At least have upward motion with the hand.

Harsh call. He was clearly trying to get that ball. It just dipped a bit lower than was anticipated.

A penalty would have been enough I thought. There was an overlap, but also another defender.

Sorry, I mean it should have been a red card and a penalty try. Took my eyepatch off for a moment there...

If he'd slapped it upwards he'd likely have caught it and got down the other end. Deserved yellow.

Chiefs really struggle at shaping defensive systems from phase ball, that's a coaching issue.

Not convinced it's worth more than a penalty, but you don't catch a ball with a 3 fingered claw stabbing downwards. He was never catching that.

Upwards I'd give benefit of doubt.

I don't think those should be automatic YC's, but by the accepted interpretations for the last few years it was a textbook card.

I missed the first 23 mins so tuned in only when Boshier scored. It was all the Chiefs from then until the push over try. The Chiefs look very good at the breakdown, as we expected they would be, and Pita Gus-Sowakula is running strongly. The Crusaders set piece looks solid.

The Chiefs basically win a breakdown penalty whenever they want one.

How the hell did Cruden not get penalised for the Jordan near try?

Then a lucky exit with a Crusaders touched kick, and as soon as the Chiefs enter the Crusaders half they invariably receive a soft penalty. The penalty count is starting to resemble an Egon Seconds effort.

Where was the knock on advantage there? We lost 5m and conceded a penalty?

Did I hear the ref say there was an advantage for a knock on? Didn't seem like he gave any in the end.

Reece with deliberate cynical play. Should have been penalised.

He reckons the last contact was a slap back with his fingers, so that makes it good
