    Did you blokes watch the Reds vs Jags?
    The Reds got mugged, and hung tough for 70 min. Then when the Yellow Card for Wright came the wheels fell off the Reds. A 13 to 3 penalty count doesn’t sound THAT bad, but when more than half of them were bad calls to let the Jags out of their own half. Reds dominated most the other stats, Passes, Runs, Possession (1st half especially), Clean Breaks, Defenders Beaten, Fewer Turnovers. The Reds Scrum was very dominant, yet they lose the penalty count, the Jags go 100% on their own ruck (despite the Reds being very on ball) and the Reds lost only 4 rucks. To add to that the maul was refereed with only one eye to the tune of at least 4 tries.

    I wish they fix the red card issue as it can ruin the game. It is much better to sanction the player after the game like they did in this case when you have time, good screen resolution etc to get he decision right. I cannot complain that referees are reluctant to issue red cards – as red cards decide games. I always think 10 minutes off and forced replacement will be sufficient sanction during the game but that the more significant penalty should be handed out after the game. At the moment we penalise the supporters and viewers for an unfortunate action from a player that may not be deliberate.
