Wales get past defiant Italy in Six Nations opener in Cardiff

So what you are saying is that the referee, assistants and TMO never get it wrong...interesting one that is.

As soon as they scored I said that there was a forward pass earlier in the play. The pass was forward; commentators thought so, everyone I have spoken to thought so, somehow the officials came to a different conclusion.

As matt said, this concept of the direction of the hands seems to have put in a grey area whereby passes that are forward are now not being given. Thankfully, this awful decision had no impact on the final outcome of the match.

The British and Irish Lions win the series 2-1 after third Test rout

I think that saying the win should go down with an asterisk next to it is a bit silly, and even more so claiming that the Aussies were almost second string. Granted, they were missing a few players and that Pocock in particular was a big miss for them, however, the Lions were missing a number of players too don't forget.

If you put an asterisk next to this win then why not put one against the RWC 2011 win for NZ after the officiating of Joubert in the final, or Japan beating Wales recently on tour with Wales having 23 players missing, the list could go on.

At the end of the day it was a series win for the Lions and that is what will appear in the record books.

Lions make five changes, Wallabies receive fitness boost ahead of 2nd Test

Nonsense comment there dave with regards to Tuilagi choosing Wales over England. Wales was never an option as he was never eligible to play for Wales, only England or Samoa.
I disagree with Ian as far as versatility is concerned regarding Tuilagi as he plays centre, nothing else, Cuthbert plays wing, nothing else, they are both as versatile (or not) as each other. I suppose WG will be thinking that he has the versatility in the starting backs with Bowe covering wing, centre and full back, Halfpenny covering wing and full back, and North even covering centre at a push. Can't disagree that Tuilagi would give more of an impact from the bench and must admit I was surprised to see Cuthbert there.

James Horwill cleared after alleged stamp on Alun-Wyn Jones in first Test

Read the reports again there murph. There was no evidence of a bite. Whether you agree with the Horwill decision or not, there is no comparison.

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

And there it is, the last resort of those poor at producing a balanced argument, the insult. Well done DrG, well done.

I thought he went missing. Not doing the dirty work like Lydiate or Faletau would, nor showing up with barn storming runs which SOB would. Certainly not the pick of the backrow by any stretch.

Well, I think any of us on the forum can discount much of what you have to say for yourself after a post I have just read of yours on the thread about Horwill's stamp. You actually assert that it could have been brought about by a loss of balance. Echoing the comment of the next poster in said thread, I must admit, I often cross my legs to regain balance...if you haven't quite caught that then to put it in easy terms for you to understand, it makes no sense to cross your legs to regain balance and natural instinct of a highly trained professional sportsman would not allow you to do it. Instead the movement would be that which comes after Horwill's stamping. Nothing like your 'nervous laugh'.

DrG. You're just a WUM. I am not choosing to ignore the forward pass law. I'm saying it was forward, the pass motion in my opinion was forward. Therefore it was forward.
We do not come full circle. You are picking and choosing what you respond to in the same way that someone unable to hold a reasoned argument does. I would invite you to watch the full match from start to finish, yet that wouldn't make any difference as you are so determined to see everything through that solitary eye of yours.
Why does someone stating what they saw have to be classified as a moan, because it's contrary to what you believe? Must be.
Anyway, the officiating of this match has just been blown out of the water at how bad it was by the farcical clearing of Horwill from the blatant stamp.
Jog on there DrG, jog on.

This is disgusting and has brought the game into disrepute. As rugby fans we pride ourselves on our sport imparting quick and fair punishments to those who fall foul of the laws. However, with Horwill being cleared of any wrongdoing we can no longer do so. The IRB should hang their heads in shame.

I understand the law (there are no rules in rugby) and have seen videos explaining the concept and have been to refereeing conferences where this has been brought up. Still say that the pass was forward and that the TMO bottled it.
