Short Arm, I do hate “eef baashing” when unwarranted. However Refs are accountable as are players and coaches and to me, are not coated in Teflon. Berry’s performance in the last 2 Reds v Brumbies games was a joke and it’s not ref bashing to call him out. He’s made his bed. Interesting that SA rugby are all over him now. I understand all refs make mistakes but Red Berry was either negligent or biased in those Super AU games. I have zero empathy for him.

Kplisi! I said Rassie was a Sook, this bloke is simply a precious Sook

'I didn't feel respected': Springboks captain backs Erasmus rant on Aussie ref

The pressure continues for Berry. It just won’t go away. Reputation is paramount to a Ref, Berry’s is irreparably damaged !

Youve gor a lot to learn about rugby, how it’s played, how it’s officiated. Keep trying, it’s really not that difficult!

Hey Jacko, what odds are you giving me for Bled 1. 6 or 7 to 1, surely?

Erasmus's extraordinary 62 minute video rant at Aussie ref Nic Berry stuns World Rugby

Agree BUT it has certainly focussed surrounding Referees. IF, he hadn’t we wouldn’t be chatting about it. You can guarantee his comments (however inappropriate, will be under serious consideration by WR).

And all valid !

Erasmus's extraordinary 62 minute video rant at Aussie ref Nic Berry stuns World Rugby

I suppose IF the Ref has a good game or is at least consistent, there would be very little VALID criticism

Jacko, TBH, I hate Ref bashing. It’s not good for OUR game. The powers rhat be, whether RA, NZ Rugby, or WC need to address the inconsistencies of officiating or the appearance of bias. It may be the ONLY way by which they take notice is by PUBLIC criticisms of “qualified ” critics and not by mug punters like me (I wouldn’t put you in the mug punter category mate 😊 ).

Interesting. More criticism of Red Berry. There was lots of valid criticism of Berry’s inept refereeing in the final of Super Rugby AU and the Reds V Brumbies last game. He was incompetent at the very least and yet gets rewarded with a Lions match. His future should be in doubt. Maybe Nic got “confused” as the Lions primary colour is RED. Bloke should retire or be retired !

Irrespective of varying opinions on Rodda, Thorn, his jumping off the Reds ship blah blah, one would imagine the Wallaby players would be a bit “off” him, particularly the Reds lads. Bit of fence mending to be done here. I would be very surprised if Rodda starts in Bled 1.

Hopefully the Lion has its fill again this week on another tasty Springbok.

The Thursday rugby two-up: I bless the rains down in Africa

The biggest one is still at the Reds and he is the coach, well Jim’s assistant anyway.

'I haven't spoken to him': Wallabies lock Rodda has no regrets about walking out on Thorn

Jacko old mate you know the story, surely. BUT, Kerevi signed a contract in Japan, didn’t tell the Reds and subsequently appointed captain. Reds were filthy and I believe Samu had to front the Board and explain. BT offered captaincy to Rodda before Samu actually left Ballymore. I understand Rodda told certain players etc that he would be the next captain. As we know, Liam Wright got the nod (IMO, a good decision). Relationship soured, probably embarrassment and a lack of respect from player to coach. Pretty understanding

'I haven't spoken to him': Wallabies lock Rodda has no regrets about walking out on Thorn

It’s good to see Rodda back in the fold. It was a shame he had to leave Aussie Rugby just to get away from Thorn at all costs. Hard to blame Rodda when he was “disrespected” my BT.

What a Sook!

‘Reckless and dangerous’: Erasmus attacks Lions on social media

It’s absolutely crazy to be able to represent any national team without being a citizen.

'If my number's called I'm ready': What Quade has been told he must do for Wallabies return

No doubt QC is a lot better international 10 than Noah and O’Connor. Hope he gets a shot as he CAN be a game breaker, whereas neither Noah or JOC are.

'If my number's called I'm ready': What Quade has been told he must do for Wallabies return

He would never have captained Australia.

Quade Cooper added to Wallabies squad as 'mentor' but available to play in Bledisloe Cup

Interesting about QC. Since signing with RA for a huge contract, JOC has checked out and is on paid holiday mode. Bloke should be out of the squad. It’s hard to imagine ANY of the newer lads being fit enough to play in the first game at all. White to replace Tate would be one exception for me. Can’t sèe Quade getting another real crack but who knows ?

Quade Cooper added to Wallabies squad as 'mentor' but available to play in Bledisloe Cup

Contracts can be drafted accordingly. As long as World Rugby mandates it then fine. A player like Tate wouldn’t command $1 million, that’s for blokes like I mentioned. IMO, Tate, early in his career but a lot of potential would be at the minimum level now, say $500k. It’s about financially supporting the Unions which develop the player.

'Sayonara': Marika Koroibete makes his Japanese departure official

It’s a shame we are losing Marika. Great player. It’s also a shame that home unions like Australia, SA, NZ etc “lose” players they develop and actually make them “worth” more by wearing respective national colours. All Unions should be able to demand a transfer or release fee (say a million bucks for blokes like Marika, Kerevi, Arnold, Latu etc) IF they have played for the national team in the last 2 years. Exceptions to the transfer rule are players covered by Giteau Law and /or, players 30 years or older.

Makes a farce of some Roarers ratings really !

Get over it. Taniela is best suited FIR THE TEAM as a FINISHER ! He would be my first pick in the 23, but as 18 !

Why, he should have scored 2 or 3 below him!
