    Have they announced the teams yet? All I heard is 3 of the AB squad have been released to play for the World XV against Japan tomorrow instead.

    Not sure I would have given it but I can’t see how it’s a surprise, they’ve given yellows for a face rub in he bottom of a ruck, they’re definitely going to give one for an open handed blow to the face

    Yep, and an awful ref. He ruins many games up this way with his interpretations.

    Even the NZ commentators disagreed with the card. Penalty at most, would have been a talking to 5 years ago.

    It’s ruined the final 15mins of a good game, although the Wallabies haven’t helped themselves.

    As I say, don’t necessarily agree with it but it’s been that way for a couple of season, I would say a smack to the face has always been a penalty though

    Not a yellow for me but it didn't decide the outcome of game. This is what you get with PC wankology now ruling the game.

    Thought i was watching SR. Empty stadium. No atmosphere. The best nation + one of the biggest rivalry in world and they still can't fill a stadium in the country picked to host the RWC.

    Soft yellow. Stupid thing to do at the same time, you know you're running the risk of one with trigger happy refs these days.

    46,000+, a record crowd for a rugby test in Japan and all for a dead rubber friendly involving two foreign sides that an international rugby fan like myself had zero interest in.

    I'm a sour-puss at the best of times but I think that you are being a little harsh.

    the stadium holds close to 80K. So it is half empty. And there was zero atmosphere in that stadium. Funeral parlour. Predictable result. Yawn.

    I guess someone has to be the dissenting voice but the yellow card was petty much the refs only call given the rules.

    It may be a bad law but it is the law and players know it so really the only bad call in that result was made by the Australian.

    Wait until Japan vs All Blacks next weekend. If there are empty seats there, heads will roll.

    I agree with that,
    Not a fan of Poite but if you're gonna palm someone in the face, in this era, you're gonna be off the pitch.
