Why is all this talk necessary, just listen to the touch judges. If two of them, and the referee, cannot come to an answer then the IRB should spend any money they would on a hawkeye project on improving their referees instead.

1 - all the power came from Charlie Hodgson
2 - I'm amazed Stuart Barnes didn't claim it should have been a sin-binning (he's such a twat)

You're a wally. It is not a fair call. It is a load of rubbish. Like you said, no malice - I wouldn't even go as far to say clumsy. I reckon if Paterson hadn't lied on the ground for a minute or two afterwards nobody would have even noticed. The reason the referee and linesman didn't see the incident is because there was nothing to see. I'm getting seriously peeved off with the way rugby is going at the moment, what is happening to our lovely game?

I don't know whether this is a citing or not. The first tackle was completely legitimate as he was committed and used arms, brought him down safely... however the fact Tiesi got injured didn't help the subsequent situation. The second incident at first seemed pretty innocuous however the replay shows what appears to be Lawes dropping in his knee, was this deliberate, the video seems inconclusive, and only Lawes will know the truth, it's a massive call by the 'real' Citing Commissioner. A couple of questions, if this happened in a Romania vs Georgia match would anybody care and also if Lawes hadn't knocked out his opponent would anybody actually have noticed? I'm not saying it is the wrong call, however I do feel Lawes can feel unlucky on the citing - but then again lucky it's only 2 matches!
