Watching the highlights again... First welsh try shouldn't happen even tough its perfectly valid. Just the opposite for the second. Its well deserved but clearly 2 times. Dont see why Picamoles is called an arrogant dick higher. The welsh on the other hand patting Picamoles'head... hate to see that. And Picamoles reaction to beeing unfairly sent off doesn't seems that bad at all. I can undersand how bitter he must feel.
Not french either and i completely agree. Really bad game. Wales wasnt that good, France just sucked. And Rolland too. I thought the french newspaper would be full of comments about Rolland. Nothing. The BBC on the other hand said something about the ref's weird calls regarding scrums and Picamoles. »
Thx! that makes the law pretty clear indeed. Still unclear for me what downward pressure exactly requires. Huget's hand is going down. But its not over the ball. Should the ground be water, I believe Huget would have make the ball go down, even if by an inch or 2 only. »
Watched the game on TV. They replayed Domingo's tackle several times. Conclusion: I just don't know what happened! But it's pretty clear that Domingo was the first one surprised with the result of his tackle. And Habana didn't seem to take offense. On the contrary, Domingo helps Habana get on his feet and then they shake hand. This was a nice image! »
