And again Ben Skeens gets his 2sec of fame and ruins the game.

And he was rewarded with a fucking forced turnover penalty. What a joke the breakdown is.


Rugby is so close to being irrelevant.

The laws do not work, or can not be interpreted with any hierarchy of consequence.

Its not embarrassing, its farcical.

The bloke is lying in the ruck off his feet!!

The rules of rugby do not justify themselves anymore.

Agree but Im afraid ive had to drop my expectations. Right now im just happy both teams havent lost anyone permanently. It feels like that could change any minute though.

Because of the player off, they just keep penalising fiji in the scrum - which means the original bad decision keeps doubling down and becomes more unjust.

Geez, the Welsh attack is junk, won't even try a first phase move against a 14 man Fiji without going to the boot. Not going to beat England, SA, or NZ like that.

The rule book is 100+ pages, surely world rugby realise they need to simplify it as every game its obvious that the Refs aren't able to enforce all of them and become selective.

Also the game is RIGGED against tier 2 sides. Both in scheduling, and adjudicating.

FFS, that was 4 penlaties and he gives a card. Wales gave away about 6 on the try line before Hooper's try and there wasn't even a warning. Its either the NH sides know the rules better/know how to skirt the rules or there is an obvious bias towards them.

It pains me that another game is being influenced by trigger happy refs. Pains me but doesn’t surprise me, the story of this entire tournament.

Surprised AWJ hasn’t gone for a HIA and the Fijian no4 not bed red carded for that tackle near the line. Near clean took his head off
