Sam Warburton red card in Rugby World Cup Semi Final

Maybe if Warburton hadn't seen red, Rolland would have been afraid of accusations of bias enough to actually referee the scrum after Jones went off. I lost count of the number of times the Welsh front row went down, not a single penalty was given. The French forwards were dominant throughout, the Welsh got away with murder there. Funny how no-one mentions that eh.

Sam Warburton red card in Rugby World Cup Semi Final

I'd rather watch New Zealand face a France side capable of producing an absolute thriller (though it is unlikely) than a Wales side inferior in skill in every position on the pitch, who will undoubtedly put in a valiant performance but ultimately have no chance of winning.

James Pritchard penalised for off the ball push on Vincent Clerc

Reminds me of Flood in the 07 RWC Final on Montgomery (I think) over the dead ball line. That one was super petulant and deserved a yellow, god Flood was so immature back then. The ref gave him talking to like he was ten.

This one isn't as bad, and yes the advertising boards are too close, but that works both ways - Pritchard shouldn't be pushing him, taking into account that the boards are close and it's potentially dangerous. I'm fine with a penalty for that, it's just petty and cheap. Plus it technically counts as an off-the-ball tackle....
