Jebb Sinclair controversially red carded for 'leading with the elbow'

No chance. I'm always called out for being on the soft side of the interpretation of the laws, but this was an absolutely bullshit call. There is no way he can be pinged for this. 'Leading with the elbow' is designed to stop people raising their elbow, pointing it outwards, and - you know - leading with it.

Pretty hard to lead with your elbow when it's tucked into your body like that. The Scotsman put his head where the elbow was, not the other way around.

RD, I don't have this problem using the same browser (Chrome) on other websites with embedded Youtube videos. This is literally the only website where I've experienced the problem. Happy enough, but I don't know why it's only affecting RD.

New Zealand snatch victory in the dying minutes after strong England showing

Unfortunately that selection is probably Julian Savea, but never mind.

Hmmm... my inner nerd has got distracted by the talk of standards and averages. You make a good point IRB_ref.

If we're going to be ultra picky, I'd question DrG's use of the semi-colon, if only because he and I haven't argued for a while and it's all too amicable.

I would still say that Owens is a bloody good ref, if not even the best, but of course he is going to make mistakes. I can live with that. Anyone good enough to learn to referee has a lot of credit in the bank as far as I am concerned. The game wouldn't function without referees like yourself, IRB_ref, so thank you.

I know exactly what you mean. I love watching games between two Pacific Islander teams. Normally from behind my sofa.

Five Biggest Hits of the 2013/2014 Aviva Premiership Season

The Volvo went a bit high into some of those collisions. Good chop tackle though.

I'd like to see a version with a Rene Range-Rover.
