Really should learn what dubstep actually is
Sorry, huge comment.
meh only medium sized, Ben and I do HUGE.
I’ve seen a few refs go to the TV ref over possible reasons not to award a try
They can go to the TMO for pretty much anything relating directly to the try. It might have been marginal to check whether Dagg was out but I've seen it done with no comment. But it has to be directly leading to the try. The law doesn't exclude checking things between the try lines specifically, that I think is a referees directive.
BUT the TMO cannot offer information that was not asked for. So in Brisbane the ref asked for grounding and the TMO offered something else, that was the problem.
That's why the ref is now asking specifically for any reason to not award the try, that gives the TMO the freedom to answer.
Essentially the problem is the language used has to be specific.
That backline going nuts for the last 30 mins would be a nice way to finish
Tt does seem that defensive lines for all the top teams are very very good. So the days when our backline could just carve them up at will seem to be over, even if we dominate.
I’m pretty sure that was Richard Kahui. Just to give credit where it’s due.
Quite right, my apologies to Kahui
There were some truly great moments.
Cory Jane chasing the high ball and seeing Cooper was going to take it, slowing down a fraction so that he could be accelerating as he hit Cooper, then having made the tackle bouncing to his feet and competing for the ball. It could have been a coaching video.
Kaino picking up the Aussie in the tackle and carrying him away from the line, without dropping him or risking any injury. A combination of strength, skill and intelligence.
He’s not perfect, but I’d much rather have him on my side.
I just love how he runs. He seems to glide. It really draws the tacklers.
I love the way his head is up while he runs. He is a lot more aware of what is happening around him than folks give him credit for and when he is tackled he is always half a metre further through the tackle than anyone else. No small talent.
I LOVE the idea of a live orchestra doing the music for a Rugby match. That would be so cool.
TBH I'm such an old fart that I don't want any music at all unless it is generated by the crowd itself.
Of course letting the crowd generate music would be a breach of the IRB rules about having fun, Book 5; section 27b subsection 15a as updated in the 483rd amendment.
I know it's lost argument but at what point did it become necessary to play music to entertain the crowd ... from what I've seen the crowd are pretty well entertained by the Rugby ... well except for the England games.
the mariachi trumpet
It's a useful signal to get back from the loo.
