Listening to the reflink with WB, the issue is that he DOES see the infringements, but lets play go on, trying to keep a balance in his head of which side is benefiting from his largess.

The trouble is, some sides take advantage of this and niggle at the opposition. Quins comes to mind. Wasps do not (Haskell excepted).

The other problem is that WB is in God mode on the pitch, and firmly tells the linesmen and TMO that he doesn't want to hear from them. That marks him out as different from the many younger, and better IMHO, refs who make very good use of their team.

I do like a game to flow, but I would rather the rules were kept to.
