He was ok in part but missed two definite yellow cards for the AB's and awarded them a try at the end when Savea was clearly tackled.

Game changing shocking decisions it was a draw when he yellow carded the french player and then failed to yellow card Kane..... two decisiins which he failed to review and got both badly wrong .... ruined a competitive game

Not a Doctor and not a troll!!

He's not the first to miss AB infringements and won't be the last? The French yellow was very harsh and he should have had a look upstairs.

Will just reinforce the French view that English refs are always against them.

It was Luke Pearce being Luke Pearce. He is VERY consistent in that regard. The shoulder charge/seat belt tackle in that France game should have been one red and one yellow.

Shoulder, with force, into the face. Red
Seat belt tackle. First contact was the neck, from behind. Yellow.

As usual, he feigned not see either, even though he was no more than two metres away and looking directly at the tackle.

No wonder the French players kicked off. Poor officiating has always caused frustration in the players.

To pretend the yellow card was game changing and that somehow France had a chance in that game is, I am afraid, wishful thinking. Agree that the French "high tackle" should have only been a penalty at worst and that the AB 7 should have got a yellow card, but France seemed only to have an ambition to defend, had hardly any clue in attack and as soon as they went behind their heads dropped and tackles fell off. They played last twenty with 15 players and still shipped points for fun especially when Mackenzie came on in his proper position at 15 (been playing at 10 this year). We have to face the fact that most teams but especially NH teams are miles behind the skills set of NZ. Look at Cody Taylor, their hooker, he could run and pass better than just about any French back with honourable exception of Teddy Thomas. NZ had all the ball and France seemed to invite them to play by kicking it back to them and the fact that there was relative parity for 50 minutes means little in a 80 minute game. I also thought giving that last try was reasonable as Savea's knee barely brushed the ground before he got over the line.

A red card may have had more of an influence, which was clearly merited by the ABs.
