A good refereeing one I remember was in (I'm sure) Namibia v Georgia in the 2015 World Cup, things were getting a bit heated and the referee was struggling to get the players to listen to him, so said something along the lines of: "No, you all understand English, now calm it all down!"

Yesterday I read a quote from chess legend Garry Kasparov: "Hoping your opponent makes a mistake is not a strategy". Made me think of times in the past when that seemed to be the Falcons' plan, as we kicked relentlessly to the opposition without a decent chase.
