Yes, 100% agree.

How about a new commentary team to go with a new TV deal?

Indeed ????

So long as the club isn’t the Waratahs B aka Sydney Uni ????

Yep. Could only imagine Nisbo, Smithy and Goog in the box!

SPIRO: Why don't SANZAR referees get punished for bad mistakes?

I was going to point that one out, too!

Spiro writes: “Anyone with knowledge of the laws (which excludes most commentators!)”…. and harps on about double movement. Oh, the irony of his articles!

For the record, the tackled player either plays the ball according to his/her rights (pop pass, release the ball behind him/her per a ruck, or reach out in any one direction in one action, usually to score). If he/she has not fulfilled any of these actions, he/she will be penalised.

Some of the top Saffer referees I have met and talked to would be mortified at the suggestion of Watson running anything…. If you’re not Black or Afrikaans then you almost have no chance!
