I'm not so sure about this one. I wonder if there is any additional footage that gives a better view of what really happens here, Since the commission took 6 hours to reach a verdict, I tend to think this case is not as clear cut as most people like to think. »
That's an interesting stat. By the time Read got sent of (74th minute or so), they showed last 10 penalties. Since the 24th minute, NZ were penalized 8 times and Australia only twice. It gave me the impression NZ were penalized considerably more. My bad.
The funny thing is the suggestion that one All Black prop is the most heavily penalized. In my opinion that means he might be cheating (of just bad at his job) but quite obviously he is not getting away with it, hence the penalties. »
