    At least this game has left enough spite to get us through these times of social distancing...

    Hard to say, I'm looking it at from a Brumbies view, but you're looking at it from a Tahs viewpoint. Momentum tends to lead to more penalties towards the dominate team, hence the swing.

    Maybe in reality it should have been 12 - 2, or 10 - 3. But really it's one or two bad calls, not 10 bad calls. For example I think they missed one forward pass, and the rest were fine (back out of the hands but ball moving forwards or just very flat).

    But i agree on paper, it looks bad, and hard to believe.

    How was the tackle by Muirhead on the Tah's no. 9 (in the 10th minute) legal; he wasn't on his feet.

    From World Rugby "The Game is to played by players who are on their feet".

    What did you think that it was?

    Simple. He wasn't on the ground which would have made it illegal. Muirhead was airborne when he made the tackle.
