Disagree mate, I think Barnes is the best ref about, the lineout call was the linesman's, he kept the rucks free and clean and requires players to stay on their feet.
No ref is perfect but he does very well as he is at least generally consistent and fair
The 5m call has to come from the AR, the ref is at the back of the lineout on the defensive side, it would be impossible for him to see that, same with the majority of not straight calls. Neither side was clearly favoured by his adjudication. All in all the best display in this 3N. We have been quick to criticise the refs but we must be fair and give credit where it is due.
