I read today Wales are considering reporting Poite for his terrible referring of the match. I have to say I used to rate him as an excellent ref but lately he has slipped in my opinion.

He wasn’t the best but that’s poor form!

And I bet they wouldn’t be had they won......

And not that that is just the preserve of the Welsh, to be clear. It’s a common tactic to divert attention from the players.

Is anyone else enjoying the irony, considering how much we whine about the referee every time Tigers lose?

Nothing wrong with launching a report to World Rugby about Poite using the correct channels. Media have just over-highlighted because it fits the narrative of Pivac being under pressure.

Saw the whining on Facebook. Absolutely nothing in it for me. He's about a foot away, already on floor and makes no obvious contact. He's have a wrestle with Francis post scrum and sir pinged Francis for dragging Genge into it.

Just some troll posting something and a couple of places like Ruck picking it up on a slow news day. The so called damning video shows nothing concrete. I'd be surprised if there was a citing.
It's not like the Welsh are bad losers or anything :smt045

Coach, fans and players who have lost a game in "there were some odd decisions" and "headbutt" shock. Change the record please. I'm pretty sure I saw a kick to the head of an English player at 2m 43s ….if I keep looking, rewind, slow it down, frame by frame and watch it enough times, I will....no no I WILL convince myself that it actually happened.

P.S. It didn't but you get my drift.
