Come on my foot! How I love to be patronised, the referee got the wrong man. 10,000 people saw it. If you want to accept this level of oversight to rugby union then that is up to you. The game, the paying fans and the whole rugby family deserve better than this.

I believe that this is yet another example of inadequate referees and linesmen who see nothing. Player safety in paramount but so is the authority of officials which is being reduced by the whims of various individuals. TV pundits are starting to sound like those on " Match of the Day" and if standards are not raised then the criticism will infect our game eroding the primary directive.

I am not suggesting bias, on the contrary, I am stating incompetence and in some cases arrogance where a few referees appear to believe themselves to be more significant than the game.

Why else would there be so much interest in knowing who " Sir" is every week?
