And Mr Foley running the line......
Let's hope we play well enough to take any of the officials decisions out of the equation

You'd think, would you not, that Wayne Barnes would do one and JP the other? I have a feeling that the M5 and Wayne aren't good mates.

Nooooooooo! Off all the Sirs in the land, how did we end up here?? Only name in the hat? Im guessing Barnsey will be at the final then.

The short straw again. Mr indecision cannot exist without TMO, and petty rule enforce.

Mr Carley not good for a flowing game and if players are looking for empathy. He is often technically correct but is so pedantic and doesn't let games flow and certainly has not got hold of how the advantage law works. Having Foley on the line is also pretty depressing for Chiefs fans. He often looks clueless when the action is in full swing and misses obvious infringements with alacrity!

Wish you well Chiefs and will be rooting for you as representatives (again) of West Country Rugby. Newcastle are beatable as long as you stop them scoring early and play like you normally do for the full 80 minutes. Newcastle have copied the Chiefs in this respect and sneak games at the death. Exeter by at least 10.

Let's hope Mr Carley doesn't spoil what I'm expecting to be a cracking game

It appears that the other semi final, wasps and Sarries ha e previous with JP so they are also dissatisfied, maybe we can swap?! (Sm100) (although you can keep Foley (Sm100))

Best of luck to all teams and may the best two face off at Twickenham on 26th May

Apart from being perhaps a little quick to allow the game to flow, I don't think MC had too bad a game today! Certainly an improvement over earlier experiences!

However ... being a 'reflink' user, I was disgusted to say the least at having to hear his constant spitting! Revolting and completely unnecessary.

Forgive me for intruding but it seems strange to be bothering what a few other (Wasps?) supporters think when you should be rejoicing in yet another excellent semi-final win & having a good chance of remaining champions. Perhaps it is becoming too common place & something is needed to moan about.
