    Stuart Dickinson and Steve Walsh are amazing referees ;)

    TO be honest, they are not worse than Bryce Lawrence

    Yep, it might take away a few advantages that the Wallabies have as well, given the number of "flat" passes that are made, because they tend to run the ball in the backs more ... personally, I'd like to see them more accurate in their decisions for all sides, but as you imply, they are only human, so they aren't going to be 100% accurate, and if they can't achieve that, i'll settle for some consistency.

    You'll find your frustration levels will decrease as well, once you realise (like I did when Australia were beating the All Blacks in the late 1990's/early 2000's), that your team is infringing too, and not always getting penalised for it.

    Yep.

    For years and years, Owen Finnegan (a blindside flanker) got away with binding onto Bill Young (the loosehead prop) in the scrum, both when playing for the Brumbies and the Wallabies. He did this into order to help Young "bore-in" on his opposing tight-head prop. Even when Finnegan packed on the tight-head side (when the blindside was on the right) he would bind up on the prop to help him bore in on the hooker. He was really crafty about it too, often starting by binding legally, and then slipping up into the illegal position as soon as the referee moved away from the scrum. I have also noticed Rocky Elsom using the same technique occasionally.

    Well, it is cheating, and it is dangerous, and Bill Young is now paying the price for what he and Finnegan did.

    And, those who say it is only the All Blacks who "get away" with stuff, perhaps you can explain why Michael Brial was not red carded for this act of thuggery...

    Dropping the srum until you get a decent enough hit is cheating.

    That said the Aussie scrum has come on in leaps and bounds (even pushing us back T_T; although we did have a hooker at tighthead when that happened).

    The 2 referees that were in charge of our first 2 matches against New Zealand in 2010. Both were from Ireland from what I can remember, but they were outright the worst referees I have ever seen. Pathetically bad.

    Nigel Owens and Alan Lewis I think it was. Alain Rolland is also pathetic. To me, it seems like the NH referees confuse rugby with dick swinging. All they do the entire game is try to stamp authority over players, choosing to reset scrums when the ball is already at the centres. NH referees can't stand free flowing games.

    Nigel Owens is a good referee. I'd rather have the scrum reset and have it done well. Than some other ref's that just don't even look at the freakin feed and walk to the back of the scrum. The scrum is a part of the game REF!! :p + Nigel Owens is Welsh if that wasen't obvious enough by his name. Alain Rolland I agree is pathetic.

    The ref/touchjudge must have felt sorry for a nr.8 that landed that amount of punches and couldn't even knock the centre out :p. Worst punches I have ever seen on a rugby pitch :p (As in nancy-hits.) But yeh deserved a red :p.

    I would say Bunces use of the forearm following through with the elbow maybe what sparked the over reaction. Im sure Brial just started swinging like a windmill for no reason at all.
    Clearly the New Zealander is at fault instigating the incident with the cheap shot. Typical and justified why Brial didnt deserve a red card. Son deserves a medal!
    Why don't you go to the nearest ballet shop, get some nice tutus and get some great dancing going on!

    I don't know if there's a a perfect English corresponding to that, but in Italy we used to say "You can slap him two by two, until they become odd!"
