Re: Technical Question

I am not sure whether anyone has replied who is a "Referee", but hope that if they do they announce themselves as such. After all, it's the Referee's problem.....

Re: Technical Question

Yes, but my immediate thought in response is there has actually been no touch down.

My guess is that the Referee has a sudden hamstring injury, and hands over immediate responsibility to another of the officials.

Technical Question

Was just thinking (yes, dangerous). Player dives into corner, and crosses the try line. No problem with being in touch. Tackler gets up, moves away.

Re: Manu sent home

If it's alcohol related, then it's disgraceful, in my opinion. Professional sportsman, given an opportunity to train with the elite, and this is how he shows how grateful he is? :smt013

"Be careful, I've just heard on the news that there's a car driving the wrong way up the motorway". "Hell", he replied, "It's not jus...

Re: Watching the Lions

I watched the game live until near the middle of the second half, and then gave up, believing that this group of ill-disciplined Lions have absolutely no chance. Checked the score, and I could not believe it. Yes, I had little faith, and sadly there is nothing I have seen so far on this tour which s...
