Not sure I agree. I think Berry's been all over the place. I saw no clear release from BPA when the Reds got their first turnover, there was another into the side of the ruck by the Reds he didn't call, or a player slow to roll away... likewise he's let some of the Brumbies indiscretions go too... I don't mind it in the name of letting the game flow, but he's picking a choosing too much for me.

Both teams will win this by taking the ref out of the equation. ie. just score tries :)

Okay - they are replaying the scrum now. Sio is on much bigger angle than Tupou. But Tupou is boring in????

Well said. Reds are down because the Bumbries have completely controlled territory, nothing to do with the officiating.

Finally Tuppu is penalised for boring in

Yep. He set up in a boring in position and the whole scrum went left with him. That was a prime example of what the Reds have been doing all year in the scrums and up til now, getting away with it.

Incidentally, a very poor decision some minutes beforehand to penalise Lonergan for an excellent, legitimate turnover.
