AW Cup weekend games (spoilers)

Think Guy Mercer at 6 for Ospreys will have his hands full, Glos have put out a really strong team.

Outrageous decision in the glos game, how their 15s high shoulder barge which put the ospreys 7 off injured got nothing but a pen is ridiculous IMO.

Saw it too Matt. Who was the ref, apart from being a raging pacifist who saw no evil and spoke no evil? Very weak officiating and not helped by either of the Assistant Referees or the TMO. He deserves to get cited.

The TMO was a woman. Corrected it for you.

That tackle was well worth a card.

I thought the ref made some really dodgy decisions on both sides. The one where he blew the whistle early for the mark (and try) was particularly strange.

Watching now, ref really should have stamped down on it all at the first breakout on 27 minutes. Yellow both 7s and put a stop to the silly buggers that have simmering throughout.


Halaifonua on 32 minutes though, entirely on the TMO. Ref checks with her, but she says there's nothing to look for. Can't blame the ref or TJ for deciding that there's nothing to look for. Correct use of the TMO, incorrect decision from her.

Thanks BnGy

Didn't realise there was a gal on the techy thing. If she is anything like my other half, she probably was watching the shopping channel at the same time, and had to switch back quickly to purchase the offer of the week. Another handbag or piece of jewellery to add to her burgeoning collection. Therefore didn't look too closely and as no one seemed seriously hurt, wanted to move on swiftly.

The fairer sex have their place in the modern world, looking after the male of the species, washing, ironing , cleaning, emptying the dishwasher, food shopping etc. but not holding the remote control of the TV. That's mans' work! ( Now waiting for the deluge of admonishment and ridicule of sexist views from the open toed sandal brigade, left wing closet feminists and woman's libbers in our readership.) I will always hold the view she was wrong in not binning Haluafinoa for a no arms tackle.

That's a pretty disrespectful post BoB, whether tongue in cheek or not.
The Irish lady ref is excellent, and there's no reason to be pathetically sexist. Are the male TMOs surfing the net for porn?
Presumably you were groping hostesses at the Presidents Club.

While I agree BoB is being disrespectful and misogynistic, your point would be slightly stronger Dorset Boy if you used Joy Neville’s name rather than ‘Irish lady ref’.

Annoyingly I couldn't remember her name! Joy is a top notch ref.

She's the best woman ref and regularly runs the line (has done at the Rec), but has she reffed a Premiership game yet?

Well DB do you think the ref with the aid of the TMO who had the better view of the no arms body check shoulder charge should have been stronger in his actions.? It certainly IMV deserved a yellow card in line with the modern interpretation of the tackle laws. The so called tackle was highly dangerous and could have caused a serious injury. Thank heavens it didn't.

And I did try to add a little levity to the situation but now am now truly admonished by you and your pc which you espouse. Thanks for putting me straight and will try to do better in the future!

Just for you DB I have no idea if male TMO's watch.porn, some may. Of couse I was at the Dorchester, not! Along with the great and the good of politics, finance, industry, the church and other well known commercial companies. Groping staff is totally unacceptable to me (especially having a daughter who has worked as a waitress when at University). However I do take some of what Jimmy Tarbuck had to say on board, in that some women had put themselves in that position (and dressed accordingly) and could have left if they felt offended. I am not justifying anyone's behaviour but if those girls feel they were compromised in anyway they have redress at law as we all do.

The only Presidents Club I know of and have attended is the one at the Rec where I have been a guest in the past and I can assure you there was no groping of anyone or sort. Just some very intense eating and drinking. Good day out.

BoB - I have not seen the incident so can't comment on that.

However, had the TMO been male you would not have made any comments about not watching the game.

Sometimes you really should engage your brain before posting.
