About the tenth time I've seen this now. There is another angle that is slightly better that is not in this clip...but I have still to see the knee to the head. Could someone who has seen it give me a definitive time for the alleged incident? Or a better clip. I can see him clumsily dropping the knee but it looks like its to DOC's back. Then you see Tommy O'Donnell writhing.
One thing's for certain, it totally changed the match and guaranteed Munster a place in the quarter finals. Whether it was Barnes or Battut that was wrong is irrelevant on that point.

An elbow to the face is legal now? Where's the doubt?

As others have said, its a Gatland special, used by Ireland a couple of times under his tenure. It really is scraping the barrel stuff: embarrassing. Surprised RD didn't know/reference this.

Gear is the only one with more than one pass! This is not exactly champagne rugby, more a celebration route one. Surely there were more expansive tries, with offloading, turnovers, phases in some combination or other?

Obviously far too early to call at this stage in the season and everyone will have a different opinion. For me, its:
1 Healy 2 Best 3 Jones 4 Gray 5 Jones 6 O'Brien 7 Armitage 8 Heaslip 9 Care 10 Sexton 11 Visser 12 Roberts 13 BOD (if not fit then Davies) 14 North 15 Kearney
Bench: Strauss, Jenkins, Ross, Ryan, Tipuric, Phillips, Hook, Brown/Foden
