    @RugbyMarvel Once the ball was played it became live. Doesn't matter that it never left ruck as he played at back so it's live as hands were on. Hence the try

    Fair enough!

    I still thought the whole review was painful and such bad communication.

    Yes but I would agree alot of stuff did take an age to review.

    The 1st half lasted nearly an hour yesterday

    I'd rather Clermont. Racing are a serious outfit. Although saying that there no easy game

    For all the negativity on officials I must say Wayne Barnes and his team have had a superb 70mins here.

    Wouldn’t it have made more sense for a French ref to do the clermont racing game.

    Barnes could have done yesterday rday’s and Nigel do the afternoon game.

    And Barnes is class. Probably the best in the world right now.

    Laws prevent a French man from Redding a French team. Had to be a neutral.

    a french ref doing a game between two french teams isn't neutral... that's crazy

    In the Clermont-Racing game Wayne and his TMO spectacularly misjudged a forward pass from Carter to Andreu for Racing's 1st try

    Left his hands backward, that’s the 100% correct call.

    Well it's in laws a ref can ref a team from same nation. I suppose it eliminated ref having history with a team from domestic league too

    It was the correct call per laws. When it left his hands it was backwards and IRB are blue in face stating that I'd guess. So it was more he spectacularly went back and checked and we'll discovered he was spot on.

    Looks like Ashton had his hands on the ball - which means Zebo is entitled to try and dislodge it.

    Doesn't matter where the ball goes at that point.

    Yes it does. If it goes forward it’s an intentional knock and if goes into touch it should be intentionally batting ball into touch.

    No it doesn't matter if another player had it in his hands. That is the point that many seem to be making from World Rugby.

    Joel Judge for 1. If the ball is in Ashtons hand and is slapped forward it's deemed a knock on.

    Law 11.5
    1. The ball is not knocked-on, and play continues, if:

      1. [​IMG]
      2. A player knocks the ball forward immediately after an opponent has kicked it (charge down).
        [​IMG]
      3. A player rips or knocks the ball from an opponent and the ball goes forward from the opponent’s hand or arm.
