The Top 5 Rugby Villains of All Time - Rugby HQ

Apparently FOxsports "Lost files" include any footage which they don't already own the rights to -- i.e. too cheap to pay for Northern Hemisphere rights.

#4 and #5 soft as hell too.

Butch James at #3 is at least a decent call.

My top five (in no particular order) -- in general, I leaned for an overall body of work, rather than a single-heinous act (granted eye gouges are as bad as it gets), and a penchant for the modern (professional) game.

Midweek Madness - Damien Traille takes a dive and gets player sinbinned

Would love it if someone took a diver,
placed them in the recovery position, and
then started screaming towards the sidelines for a doctor.

Kane Barrett gets straight red card but cited for separate stamp

here is my 90% statistic

The referees on the IRB International Panel, or on the SANZAR panels have played at a higher level than over 90% of the people on Rugbydump.com

myself included.

The real pressure on referees is not their inability to play or read the game at the highest levels.
The real pressure is the IRB trying to make the game more television friendly. That means favoring the offense to win the ball. That means not scaring mothers from letting their children play. The Referees are simply given the task of policing that.

If there weren't microphones on the referees, I might agree with you and refer to the Laws of the Game.

but we have mics and I hear referees all the time speak to a player and the captain and use the word "intent" in their rationales for dialing a Penalty / card up or down.

George North apologises for Genia taunt in first Test, PLUS new Lions shirts

If I wanted to see a dick move like that, I would have watched a video of Peter North.

Glad to see George apologize, and bring the game back to the 20th century.
