Rugby Union World Cup


******* referee  

Proud of how you hung in there and, though yes a good final lineout would have rather helped, you were done, Scotland.

Happy ( too late ) TV viewing, Mr Ref  

The end .... for Scotland and the Northern Hemisphere.

Does anyone actually understand the rules? It seems very technical on infringements and very difficult for the average person to follow.

Rugby league is much easier to follow.

Yes, although I do like top class rugby union, it can be a bit mysterious in the forwards, particularly the scrum.

I got though that the Aussie being last to touch the ball before the Scot dived on it meant it was no deliberate offside - penalty. Made sense. Just assume an important chap missed the Aussie being the last to touch it.

And apparently it wasn't in fact an incident that could be TV reviewed. Any try - yes, suspected foul play - yes, no doubt some other stuff - yes, an unclear offside call for a World Cup QF winning penalty as two players contested a ball together - no.

Utterly shameful that the ref just ran off the pitch at the end, though, no matter what the rights and wrongs were.

And it seems daft to me that you can't use the review system to check penalties. Why not? Surely the ref should be able to use it whenever he feels he needs to/wants to.

Feel for you, Indy, can;t help feeling that you were robbed...... (although not overthrowing the lineout would have been a good option too.....)
