Agreed re the Kinghorn decision, I didn’t get that at all.Wallpaperman wrote:Re the penalty, the scrum half stepped into a player who had moved out of the tackle area. I felt the scrum half was milking that one a bit.
But he really didn't, we saw times and again refs being really hot on moving east/west and not North/South both times the player opted to move South, both times he slowed down the SH and both times he should have been penalized
I only remembered the second one when i posted, and I stand by my original view. The prop is rolling ‘east’ after the tackle and Pyrgos is approaching from ‘south west’. There is no need to make contact with the prop who isn’t between him and the ball. The first one, 30 seconds earlier, the tackler is lying on the floor to the south of the tackle area. Pyrgos jumps over his legs to get to the ball, trying to keep the play going. I wouldn’t have disagreed if Nige had called penalty advantage for that one.
