I like the Hougaard one too, but every time I look at the pass to 13 (at 2:06 in the video above) I can't help thinking that it's gone forward. Not a perfect camera angle, but there is no backward movement in the hands at all...
You're right (it should have been a Bok lineout) BUT Walsh correctly applied the laws as they stand. The current IRB approach is that the touch line is the Touch Judge's call, except in the final phase before a try, where questions can be referred to the TMO. Walsh could not refer the Youch Judge's decision to the TMO (despite de Villiers' requests) because he is not permitted to do so. There's a really good analysis of the issue on Rugby365 this week. »
@Jimmy23 - To your last point, I am entirely sympathetic. If I was an England fan I would be bitterly disappointed to have to watch yet again as Dylan Hartley's indiscipline costs his team any chance of winning an otherwise close match. »
@FoXtroT - Where did I say it is "fine when it happens in NZ"? I clearly said (and clarified in the posts below before you posted) that it's a potential problem everywhere, regardless of which teams are playing. »
