Agree DMac, who knows what happens if the correct call was made. It may have changed the outcome it may not.....but it is a shame that calls obviously wrong cast a shadow over the result.
As I understand it you are correct about the phase in the 22. As soon as Timani took the hit up, the ball could legitimately be kicked out on the full.

Only one I can think of is Scott Fardy.
Dennis won't realistically have a shot at 6 until at least 2017, Fardy re-signed earlier this year for a further 2 years.
