    Another high tackle?

    Bloody hell Cheika, what have you been doing in tackle sessions?

    Australia haven't got to grips with staying below the neck, there has been a few others that didn't get picked up as well

    Great try.

    White and Beale are next level for Australia.

    Good strong reffing being shown for once. Good to see yellows being given for high tackles!

    Yup, they could have given away a few more penalities, and probably another yellow (for persistent offence)

    The Uruguayans starting to look visibly frustrated by Matthieu’s interpretation at the break down... could be a portent of an absolute blow out during the second half.

    TMO doesn't like Uruguay (he's right this time, but...)

    He’s correct I suppose the TMO, but if you reviewed every ruck you’d fine at least a couple of infringements. Pretty frustrating for Uruguay no doubt that he decided to review that one

    Same TMO from Wales vs Oz I think (Skeen)... he loves to get involved.

    Its because it led to the try, and it was a lot more offside than the infamous one from England against NZ last autumn.

    I would argue the ball was still in the ruck as it didn’t look to be behind the last foot.

    He was walking towards the ruck too, if he kept running he had time to retreat that extra half meter on his way there and enter correctly.

    It's a shame but I guess correct call and a bit avoidable.

    Yep, he's right by inches.
    Having said that, I don't like TMOs involving themselves for penalty offences.
    IMO his job is to review play when requested by the ref, or as a 3 touch judge for clear and obvious stuff.
    He deals with marginals when the ref requests, but obvious stuff when he's interjecting.

    If Reynald asked him to get involved, I missed it (easily possible).

    Now that would have been fair. It probably wasn't behind the back foot, but it was well clear of any of the players - always a bit of a grey area.
