The British and Irish Lions win the first Test as Kurtley Beale misses late penalties

Sadly, Super 14 play under the same laws...... it's the Interpretations that are different.
Surely the IRB can insist on standard interpretations, they appoint referees ..... start demoting all those who won't apply standard interpretations, all this SH NH divide is poor for the game.

If the SH want to play RL then bugger off & do it. As a Union xplayer & fan I want to see contests all over the pitch..lineout, ruck, maul, tackle, jackal, scrum feeds, hooking, kick off catches etc

It's supposed to be an international sport.

Phillips has always kept guards occupied with his taxiing, but it slows down ball to receivers , when he can't get through it looks terrible, but when it works he's a handful. everyone can see Youngs service is quicker, but if he doesnt interest the defenders they just smother the 1st/2nd receivers ..... take your pick. Croft did lots of tackling, still worth his place IMO

can't wait for next sat .......

USA Eagle Samu Manoa's huge hit on Peter O'Mahony

Penalty to USA. Both irish 3 & 5 are forced to come in from the side because of the distance O'M travels ..... poor ref decision on that occasion, Samu's efforts unrewarded

Samoa outmuscle Scotland in opening game of Quad Series in Durban

The IRB 3 yr residency rule stinks ....... If you have dual nationality qualification then select your Nation at 16 & stick with it......

Alesana Tuilagi is proof that modern players CAN reside in one country but travel to play for a country 000's of miles away without switching to play for another Nation, for that he always gets my respect - legend.

Yes it was RC - why because it was a cheap shot [virtually blindsided him] & the provocation was minor.

SW admitted it in his "for the sake of the game" or suchlike comment

Subby me ol mucker..... that's exactly what \brits should have done.

Don't blame referees though, this problem has evolved - If referees started penalising every biot of gamesmanship in matches then the players would be stood still for 75% of the match watching someone else kick the ball to touch or at the sticks !

Then you and every other watcher would soon start complaining.

Brits had lots of alternatives to the punch - I think it was a bit of Club Hierarcy coming home, young pup v tough forward ............. Farrell handled it just about right IMO, stood up, but not uncontrolled enough to also get YC - well played that 21 yr old !
