Richie McCaw knee on Morgan Parra, Donald kick, Rougerie eye-gouge, and more

As some people have already noted again and again -- challenging the haka is not the issue at all, heck, it should be promoted! The issue is infringing the rules!!!

Pause at 0:33. Parra already offside prior to movement forward. He moved forward, more offside where ref told him to back off. He then returned to still yet an offside position. Just look at where he is standing relative to where Dusautoir's hind feet are at.

McCaw cannot roll away if the length of his arm is piled on with other players.

0:32 Mealamu did not blatantly join ruck from side -- used full arm and body was bound with teammates and opposition who were in ruck.

My point is the Australian commentator is just calling out penalties left and right where in fact they were not penalties. Parra was actually offside and interferred with play - what's the problem? McCaw didn't play the ball off his feet. Hore was not offside!

Why would the All Blacks do the haka again after the game? Plz post video.

Just watched Irish television analysis. Just a few points as to what they're pointing out:

Read vs Parra offside at 0:26 of video:
Read went forward because Yachvilli engaged the ball which they admit is correct. Read did not interfere with play or move towards the ball. Whereas Parra was offside already regardless of his move forward. His move forward only made him even more offside. Look at the field lines and you can see Parra at least 1 metre ahead of teammates. Also, Parra was penalised because he was in a position that interfered with the play and moved forwards, towards the ball (Rule 11.1(a) and (b)) which forced Read to have to pass earlier.

0:59: How was McCaw playing the ball? His hands were up.

1:00: Kaino had ball while on feet. Got off feet and ball was out. Hore dived in because ball was out of ruck. Hore was clearly not offside. France simply did not dive for the ball when out in open. At 1:27 commentators say Kaino was off his feet and throwing ball forward -- what??

The only thing that I find to have any merit would have been the attempted high tackle by Woodcock.
