Nobody can expect perfection in any refereeing, but they can expect consistency, and Wales didn't find that with Alain Rolland. All you are doing is taking the letter of the IRB law to justify your win, because it lacks so much credibility. The unwritten laws in rugby are also as important as the written ones - notably not to feign injury for your own advantage (that happens every day in soccer, which is why most of us treat that game with contempt) but your player who went down made a complete meal of it.
Yes can sympathise,but strange you didn't sympathise when the Boks had a Kiwi ref, officiating that game, even though it had to be the most blatant display of either biaisim or outright corruption!! You had one bad decision going against you, and yet if Warbuton hadn't spear tackled you may have won,and you feel slighted !! The Boks had not one, two or even three decisions ( which may have been understandable) but many, which changed completely the outcome of the game ! However I do know that you and all others on this thread will scoff and laugh, and call us whingers, bad sporstsmen etc, but hell I don't give a toss, its to be expected ! I for one want there to be an investigation, this must not be swept under the carpet until we get answers from the IRB, we deserve them, and demand it !! If there is, or has been match fixing, it must be exposed,no matter who is responsible !!
As far as our chances for next Sunday I will be more generous ( i am an optimist by nature ) than you by giving us 10 % chance to win Rugby's holy graal ....
