I played for 12 years, refereed for 26 years and coached for quite a few years.Ignore is there for guys like you to use ...please do. I'd prefer that over brain-dead comments.
I played the game for 11 years, reff'd for 25 years and coached for a few years, you get to meet a few people, but Hoiles wasn't one of them, having watched him commentating I thought he spoke like a decent guy (comparisons are odious) What are your rugby credentials?
He also missed a reasonably easy penalty off the posts. The sideline conversions were definitely encouraging though, its a small sample size but if he didn’t kick those I was thinking we’re going into a RWC with a legit 50% kicker.To be fair to Donaldson, he's got a decent boot on him, nothing extraordinary but still. Carter's kicking against NZ in the latest test was class, kicked 3/3 (two on the far left edge if i recall), and even got a 50-22 with Will Jordan covering the back. I remember he missed touch twice (in both games) but these are very easy things to work on before the world cup.
