They could have deducted the 2 competition points each team had at the end of normal time for their efforts over extra time. 😊

Super tiebreaker given thumbs up

Yeah we often hear the ref checking this sort of detail with the TMO or his assistants. They are expected to work as a team but on this occasion, not very well.

Jordie Barrett launches ball into orbit with gigantic 60m penalty goal

It was Neil Barnes and yes Paulo it was regarding where the penalty was taken from.

I think the penalty try to the Chiefs was a mistake as well. Generally, referees will not award penalty tries when other defenders are in a realistic position of defending it.

Prinsep had got himself in a realistic position to defend McKenzie.

Fun? Fun’s fun but to h… with nonsense. Good on ya.

As I said Chivas …”my team is the Chiefs (has been since day one)” . Like you it is an extension of the Waikato support. I haven’t signed up for another crowd.
fickle? fence sitter? weather vane? Give it up mate.
Good on ya as Grizz would say. I’ll be there Sat night. 😁

Chivas – not sure who you think I am. Yes I am a Highlanders supporter as I am a supporter of all NZ teams however my team is the Chiefs (has been since day one) then the Blues and the rest takes care of itself. “Fickle” is not a word I would use about myself.

Regards the Super Rugby Pass …agreed…Sky finally getting their stuff together.

Further to the comment of Carlos Spencer there was one from Rod Kafer suggesting the Reds needed to adjust to “the referees laws”.

Also in round 1 Ben O’ Keeffe advised the players he “couldn’t be expected to get everything right”.

Well its sort of is one way. Personally I am doing just that. I’ve become a Chiefs member this season and have encouraged friends to join me and also have acquired a Sky Sport NZ super rugby pass for all super rugby.

“If you are a rugby fan just make the best out of it!” …Yep agree. It is what it is.

There was a queue at Hamilton…just saying.

Super Rugby’s waning interest levels in Dunedin

Yes once upon a time – whatever the sport – one could immediately recognise most teams. Not so these days.

Also the Lions home jersey. It’s a completely different colour, front and back. If you didn’t know better, at times you might think there are 3 teams on the field.

The Wrap: How Super Rugby can help save the environment

Here’s an idea Short Arm. All the referee has to say is ‘TRY no 5″. Problem solved. How hard can it be.

High risk putting faith in referees? Tend to agree. I have this idea that whenever possible – take the referee out of the equation.

The Reds saw the ball passed back ? Hmm not so sure. This looked very much a predetermined plan by the Reds. And if you watch the Reds hooker (Mafi) he quickly moves to the back of the Lions pack to tackle who he hoped would be the ball carrier except the ball was kept at the front.

Yes the Reds were using their nous but on this occasion they finished with their pants pulled down. They’re not the first team to come unstuck attempting this type of play.

Outlaw the body roll…you fix the neck roll problem.

I think its fair to say Ennor is next level up from Goodhue for speed. Apparently Ennor is the fastest in the Crusaders squad.

And only you Neil would care enough to research it.

Good to see you are not neglecting your NZ homework over the holiday period.

All the best for the new year. 😊

But not the head coach.

Yes quite right. This should have happened in 2015 and then you would have been happy. Yeah…right.

Former All Blacks coach Hansen knighted

Pretty sure he read the first few sentences. He was simply responding to the initial tone of the article…to be fair.

Too right Richie! World Rugby need to get a grip on time-sucking scrums

Rennie didn’t apply did he?!

“Newly-appointed NZ Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson said a strong assistant coaching group was one reason for Foster’s appointment – seeing off the challenge of Crusaders head coach Scott Robertson.”
