This is my point though. I don't think those things are being pedantic. It's not in the interests of letting the game flow if you allow the team with the ball to keep it by clearing out illegally or the team struggling to defend to not get back onside.
I'm not saying he was excellent just that I don't think the criticism is warranted.
Interesting. We agree on the detail but my response, if I were managing the ref appointments, is that ref would be benched and guided toward creating better flow in the game. It's a high expectation for sure, but something I hope for in a test.
What were your thoughts on the video ref?
