    Premiership Rugby 20/21 - Rd 6

    Fair result. LI will feel the better of the two? Need to sort their set piece, line outs were especially... interesting. Perhaps due to lack of preparation time in fairness.

    How was that not a yellow for Smith? Perplexed.

    I mean if Banahan can do it... Back to game, seems ridiculous that the Irish try was disallowed though player never lost control of ball yet Quins stood without being checked when player did lose control.

    Watching the preview I can't help but wonder if Dombrandt is playing the "wrong" position and should switch to 12? Think he could be a sensation there given his size coupled with handling and the running lines he cuts...not to mention that backrow experience coming in very handy for turnovers...

    Coincidentally BT have just broadcast that Austin Healy gave the TMO "a bit of gip" as he went to get a half time drink over the lack of yellow. I'll say it again, the influence of pundits on live matches needs to stop immediately.

    That tackle was a monster. Who was the falcons player who led with shoulder off feet into ruck a few phases before, 10 or 12? Wondering if it was retribution for that.

    TV director works with both BT Sport and the TMO. Even if they can't hear (wouldn't be surprised if they could BTW), the TV director knows what the commentary are discussing/works with them and is with the TMO. Since lockdown it seems like it's increasing for whatever reason, it's more...

    Commentary dictating/influencing the TMO needs to stop.

    Probably the strongest Bristol team of the season so far yet still no actual inside center in the 23 due to injuries and wonder how rusty returning players are. Exeter side looks much more settled and stronger by comparison.

    Whatever the reasoning, a player running in escalating is always a penalty reversal. Curry lost his head and got away with it.

    No I haven't seen the headbutt I'm just going by what commentary said which was along the lines of, "very ugly, probably more will come of this, headbutt". I'll take your word for it though. I did see plenty of the review and 36 hasn't really done a lot wrong there, it's rugby. But letter of...

    Premiership Rugby 20/21 - Rd 5

    With all that said however I really enjoyed the game and aside from those bits I just mentioned the officiating was far better than the other matches and it was really good to watch. Edgy, hard, quick and some good rugby in poor conditions. Could have gone either way. Return fixture should be...

    As a neutral; cheating and favourable officiating. Gloucester got done well dirty there. Dismiss the cheating water carrier, definitely. Yellow card 36 for the ball recovery into shove? Harsh but if you must, fine. Penalty to Sale, BUT... Curry comes flying over escalating the whole...

    Yes?! Bristol Bears team vs Quins (2pm boxing day, on TV also)

    Hanging off Purdy's head is fine too apparently. Shortly after instant pen to Clermont for less. I'm done, haha.

    Hughes got hit in the face, played ball backwards anyway... scrum to Clermont? Absolute shocker from officials.

    Calls going against Bristol all the time, Brace trying to even it out after Nations Cup? *edit* So nice to ignore the injury in middle of play.

    This is going to be a huge ask of Bristol given the injury list.

    Drop goal

    Jonny Wilkinson Some consider him one of the best because he did a ice cold thing but really any back can kick behind a ruck or maul plus he was a fairly weak tackler and was not an outstanding athlete/thread or playmaker. I did a highlight reel test like Maradona, trust me. I guess you could...
