It was Ben Skeen who didn’t see the forward pass in the quarters.

We all of course have our own views and I agree the Retalik did knock the ball, but in my view it did move forward from Underhill to George. Good job it didn’t matter

I thought the second disallowed try was tough, I would argue it was Retallick’s hand that played it forward not George’s.

Feel bad for Underhill though 😂, that’s twice he has been disallowed versus the All Blacks.
It was touch and go for Lennys try, but was there conclusive proof to overturn the on field decision of try.

Thought on the whole Nigel had a very good game, can see him being given the final and Wayne getting the 3rd/4th playoff
Replayed, very clear that a NZ hand struck the ball from George's hand but he recovered it. TMO rubbish.
This made me smile and I've unashamedly pinched it from another website....

Whether it is Wales or SA next week, if England play like they did today, they should win.

The difference is that when he does exactly the same for Tigers people say he rushes out of the line.

The reality is it just illustrates the slow, lazy defensive line at Tigers over the past few years.

There is an anti English bias. Think of the quarter final where the 4th official saw no forward pass in spite of the Australian receiver being a couple of yards ahead of the passing player.

A Northern hemisphere win is seen as a bad thing and England winning the worst of all.

Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

Marius Jonker is his name......more like plonker!
Bloke who denied Underhill last year versus the All Blacks.

Shame for Heinz, perhaps in hindsight Jones should have took a third scrumhalf instead of McConnochie.
