Scotland come up trumps against France at Murrayfield

Thanks, that would explain it. Forward pass by the french then back to an infringement by the scots (the collapsing the maul thing) hence the touch. That makes sense.

Oh by the way can anyone explain why Fickou's try was disallowed? Was watching the game in a crowded pub and all I saw was:
- Fickou crossing and grounding the ball;
- Jackson raising a hand;
- a banner on tv saying "collapsing the maul"
- and then a french touch.

There is a huge gap between "clinical" and this drunk surgeons team :-)

As a matter of fact I m not french and I was wearing a scottish hoodie during the game :-)
Whatever.
Let's say it was good rugby with way too many handling errors from the french. and a totally inconsistent scrum.
Maybe some french fans cannot bear the thought of loosing to scotland...OK.
I really don't want to lessen the scots performance. But I think some people might in truth have been so happy to see those brilliant scots winning that they forget about those 20 lost balls by the french. There were 16 scrums, 15 for scotland, 1 for the french (which they won giving them a 100% ratio!).
35-35 would have been a perfect result imo :-)

I must say I also find it surprising to read those comments.
The Scots really are a thrilling team nowadays. I love that.
Regarding France I ve read their rate of passes and offloads is the highest in the tournament and yet they will most likely end up on the fifth position. I think that tells a lot.
In the french media they say les Bleus lost the ball llike 20+ times. They produce a couples of minutes of really interesting rugby, a couple of times during the game. But it was their worst game this far under Guy Noves, who is very disapointed.

Wallabies snatch victory from courageous Scots at the death

He's beeing crucified for beeing Joubert in the first place.
And it will go on. No other ref has been subject to such controversy as far as I know.
And wether it's right or not, he's now knowned as a bad ref by a lot of people. His name may well be the only one that many people know as far as refs are concerned.
Of course World rugby has to stand by his side because you can't have people criticizing referees.
But he's still an arse, with the charisma of one. And that's problematic in itself (even tough there's not much one can do about it).

Looks like Joubert had to poop.
...
Not sure that helps his image much.

As far as I am concerned, you could give the TMO a whistle.
So the ref wouldn't have to stop the game and ask for it.
Don't see how it could do harm to the game.

He thought you had other intentions and gave you a yellow card, off you go :-)
