I couldn't keep up.
Refs should be made to watch the calm demeanour and interpretation of Wayne Barnes. There is no back chat. Just respect.
But he lets the game flow and the players and spectators appreciate it.
I really believe that Southern Hemisphere refs go looking for penalties. They play little advantage (by that I mean discretion, not finding a fault and calling advantage) and as a result, the game does not flow. That is why the set piece has become so important but as a spectacle the game has gone backwards.
Here is to more discretion that encourages the games to flow...
