Re: European Challenge Cup

One of the most appalling displays by a team of officials I have ever seen.

One dissallowed try due to forward pass that clearly was not.
One allowed try that should not have been given due to fairly obvious off side.
One penalty given the wrong way as there was no clear release from the attacking side.

The international ruling body has to get this level of inconsistancy under control, its not as though the basic technology of a replay is not readily and quickly available to the on field officials. A 20 second review of the disallowed try would confirm beyond doubt that the referee made a wrong call and the try would stand - hardly a game ruining amount of time!

What message does this send out to fans and potential fans that we are "happy" with this dreadful level of inconsistancy?

If this is the level of poor officials we can look forward to as part of the master plan of being european contenders at Bristol then we are in for some serious dissapointment.

An entire season of effort comes down to 3 inexplicable decisions which has ruined an otherwise fantastic game of this wonderful sport!
