The way Farrell reacted really irritated me because he knows what he’s doing.

Let's talk about that decision

World rugby will only cite a player post match if the offence is deemed to be worthy of a red card. So I had no expectation that he would be cited. It deserved a yellow card. End of.

Let's talk about that decision

Do you think World Rugby would bother listening to him regardless?

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah Fionn I agree. Look I don’t want to stray too far from my article’s point. I think Cheika has an innate right to criticise the referee. But that doesn’t mean I’m absolving him from blame. He very much to blame for the current strife Australian rugby finds itself in.

Touché

Ah interesting. I actually haven’t seen that. The camera man was too busy filming Kepu running away with glee, only to be called back.

Let's talk about that decision

I feel like an undesirable tangent had started here…

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah absolutely, that’s what my article is about

Let's talk about that decision

Best thing I’ve seen all day

Let's talk about that decision

Thanks for the explanation, I actually do appreciate it. I do understand the law, I reckon a lot has to do with the context of the ruck and the positioning of all the other English defenders… I won’t bore you with the explanation.

Australia deserved to lose no doubt. Major improvements are necessary.

Let's talk about that decision

True

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah the three penalties thing was a really strange way to phrase whatever he was trying to say

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah it sucks bro

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah hopefully the refs can improve before the World Cup

Let's talk about that decision

Disagree

Let's talk about that decision

You make a compelling case

Let's talk about that decision

In that case. He was being consistently wrong

Let's talk about that decision

That’s pretty funny, I’ll go look it up

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah that is an interesting point. I think Hooper in the past has been accused of being too aggressive with the refs. Now it seems that he has become way too cautious. He has to find a good middle for the future.

Let's talk about that decision

I think we know that the same leniency wouldn’t have been given. Very unfortunate

Let's talk about that decision

Rodda could have been given a yellow but it would have been harsh as your said. I think the TMO was necessary because it was a try scoring opportunity so a different situation to his tackle on Daly. I’m not going to really argue but the NZ call was right, Lawes was about half a yard offside and Poite got that correct. The quality of reffing has been declining recently, so I hope World Rugby does something to remedy this issue.

Let's talk about that decision

Do you reckon Paine would perform better at 6?

My thoughts on Australia's Test selections to play India

Indeed it would

The job of a coach

Papier and Kolbe are properly quick players. They have massive room for development.

Who is the foxiest coach in world rugby?

I think it would be too much of a hit to his ego, but I’d love to see him at fullback

Sharks most likely destination for Shaun Johnson
