I look at those SA 9s and think "livewires" I look at our Ben and think "laboured"

What you should be looking at is the speed of the cleaners, which is why he is better for England than Tigers, I’m hoping that will be much improved next season for all our 9sv

The SA scrumhalf conveyor belt doesn’t stop there, arguably their U20’s best player was scrumhalf Jaden Hendrikse (Sharks) is a name to remember.

Lavanini had another strong showing against New Zealand. Comment made by the Justin Marshall that he should maybe ship the ball on rather than carrying into contact, though I have seen him do this for the jaguares

All Blacks were lucky, no way was that maul sacked legally.

They drove through it from the back, it what way was it sacked illegally? Because I didn’t see anything, and more importantly neither did one of the worlds top refs
Which player was it ?

I think I saw a side entry, plus it was probably collapsed as what happens with every unplayable ball decision made. Ie it’s a :censored law that needs changing because it’s lazy defending. Refs are becoming better at officiating it, especially at mauls in open play.

So in other words your guessing at what happened and could just have easily been defended legally, Retallick was seen telling the rest of the pack to hit it, and they defended within the existing laws
If it had been tigers defending like that you would have lauded it as great defence

Yes Retallick was legal and I wasn’t referring to him, you would think I would laud it as great defence if that was Tigers, but I wouldn’t. I still think it’s lazy.

Playing within the laws lazy, very interesting take that, suggest you share it with your coaches

My view is that in whatever way a maul is brought down to the ground the ball should made available to play.

And I don’t disagree with you and if they were the laws of the game then that is how it would be officiated.
But it isn’t and they’re not, so it’s wrong of you to suggest that New Zealand did anything wrong.

Maybe next game you play you should only use the laws you think are correctb

That's not my priority in a game of rugby, doesn't matter if I disagree with one law, the ref or the coaches isn't going to do anything about it. I do whatever it takes within the law of rugby to win the game.

And that's exactly what the ABs did yesterday and fair play to them, I'm just voicing my view that the rule is :censored.
