Stains just scored their bonus point try on 71 minutes, despite a forward pass not checked .. they were 19 - 20 down, but now 26 - 20

Needless to say Leinster are walking over



The referee is the final arbitrary
.. dementiaaahll!

What annoyed me was that the stadium decided to show a replay after the TMO had said "nothing to see" and then the ref watched that and reversed (rightly) the decision. I wonder whether the stadium people would be as eager to replay any incident where Saints were in the wrong (i.e. forward pass for try)

I thought that was a very "French" approach to choosing what goes on the screen. You see it all the while with French TV, who rarely show a French transgression but repeat ad nauseam, those committed by forge in opposition.

TMO must have been asleep to miss the two neck rolls that were clear to just about everyone else.

Yes, TMO was wrong but the point still stands

I wish we had control of the TMO. We need all the help we can get. I expect the Director is looking for controversial decisions to give the commentators things to discuss so anything that slips through is due to so many feeds. If not then BT need a rethink as they shouldn't be trying to influence games. Even if it did help for one close try. They did catch a lot of our forward passes through.... we were pushing it too much imo.
