The issue with the Wiese yellow card is that the nosey TMO who has the best angles and replays called it as penalty only, there were lots of necks roles, no arms tackle throughout the game that were missed, also a prime example of no consistency is the hand on the head when the player was clearly pulled into touch by the Quins player, Tempest said it was not part of the tackle, absolute garbage, everyone could see the player impacted him which resulted into him going into touch, it was clear the player couldn’t make the tackle legally as he was over stretching hence contact to the head, illegal, yellow card and pen try everyday of the week, also the TMO totally ignores it!! The reports on match officials should be made public so we can read there justification and to see if the higher powers agree with there bizarre decision making which isn’t by the letter of the laws.
The officials work as a team…so calling the TMO “nosey” is way wide of the mark, and a little disrespectful of their role. It’s their job to intervene and have a discussion with the referee - and if they stayed silent on an incident instead of intervening to Tigers’ advantage I’m sure there’d be plenty piling on to say so! Ultimately the referee has the final say, and on this occasion they clearly decided to overrule the TMO. I didn’t hear the discussion as I was at WR…but frankly it looked like a yellow to me even from my distant vantage point!
You do have the over involved TMOs who everyone has clearly heard before making the old I have a better angle, check again, check again to the ref who are trying to influence decisions already made in the refs head.
Whats your theory on the hand on the head incident? That was on TV, seen by ref and TMO, the correct decision?
As for the reports being made public, I 100% think they should, in this current climate it’s all about transparency, what would be humiliating about someone actually saying they made the wrong decisions in hindsight?
You seem to suggest that there’s something wrong with TMOs pointing out things the referee has missed - but isn’t that the point?! It’s having those different angles that enables infringements that would otherwise be missed to be penalised….what possible objection to this could there be?
I don’t know about the ‘hand on head’ incident - was showed on the big screens at the time but my eyesight isn’t good enough for me to be sure either way - and I’ve not heard the commentary either.
Mostly I just wish we had less chat about the officials on here - especially as it seems to be largely comprised of endless claims that officials are either useless (at best) and constantly make bad calls that disadvantage Tigers. Guess what? Try looking at the fan forum for our opponents and you’ll find the same officials are apparently desperate to hand the match to Tigers.
As for transparency - there is a transparent review system in place which Tigerbeat has explained. Opening this into the public domain would simply inhibit the honest appraisal/critical reflection that goes on there - not to mention feed the toxic beast that is social media.
