    Got home and turned on iView to watch the news but first saw a featured interview with Tony Daly. About his time at Joey's, how it drove him to become a Wallaby but sadly then drove his life off the rails. Brave move and I just hope he and others are getting better.

    How all match officials could not find any mitigation in either of tonight's RC's. Especially the 2nd. I thought To"omua described the tackle perfectly and the Ref sounded like he probably agreed.

    How Carlo tizzano can separate from a maul ad run forward into a defender without being called for obstruction in the same game as the tahs maul breaks off the side, maintains bind with no defenders in contact and gets called for obstruction when they meet the defense

    Agreed!

    Also the second red card. Rediculous!

    This may require Ecky to clear up regarding Tizzano's second half try, but I thought you couldn't score a try through your own ruck?

    That was questioned by the commentary team as well, but that would make priors cheeky dot down over the line behind his own ruck in the game against (I think) the Reds out as well.Tbh I was surprised they didn't call priors back at the time

    Looks like being an interesting judiciary on those two RC's on Saturday. In the first instance I thought the officials were ticking boxes but not being quite truthful about what they were seeing. Berry sort of asking opinions of each criteria including "No evidence of the ball-carrier ducking into the tackle (or similar)" - when he CLEARLY did lower his body going into contact. The second RC, I thought Berry looked a little sheepish too.

    Fa’amausili tackle the perfect test case for judging high contact

    Rugby has been waiting for a tackle such as Fa’amausili’s shot on Waratahs second-rower Max Douglas – and the whole game will be watching the outcome of the judicial process closely. World Rugby recently replaced its “Decision-making framework for high tackles” with the more simplified “Head contact process”, and the change allows officials a bit more leeway to turn red cards into yellow cards. Fa’amausili’s shot is in a grey area because the Rebels may argue that the initial contact was on the chest or shoulder.

    I knew there was a reason I flicked FB. Unless I get an email referring to direct family - who seem to spend every waking moment there

    I'd be inclined to agree. First one the tackled player lowered his height, although the tackler could maybe have started a little lower. Second one and the tackler was actively driving upward into contact. But if they should be testing something, it is the contact being made by a rigid arm and shoulder, while the other arm flops around to give a meaningless impersonation of 'wrapping'.

    I feel like the laws surrounding the maul contribute to the issue. If players aren't so worried about being held up they would tend to turn the hip and shoulder to the defender, protecting themselves and maintaining ball security. The question is; does that contest for possession play such an integral part in the game that it outweighs player safety and the blight of R/YC's? I don't see rolling mauls from a line out presenting the same issues.
