The second most important responsibility for a ref in my opinion is to let the game flow. He or she needs to do that as fairly and as consistent as possible. There are penalties at every breakdown so the ref has to ignore. Re not straights. Lineouts need to be consistent and reasonable. Technically lineouts are seldom "straight". Scrums I don't care anymore. I'm so bored with watching re sets that I just want the ball out. Shame, cause a competitive scrum is great to watch. Hopefully we are on the way to rectifying it.
