    But simply, obstruction being ignored is not a thing RL has done to "improve the product" anyway.

    The Reds are 30 points up against the Chiefs at half time! An Aussie team may yet win a game

    We know how good they are at coming from behind. They are certainly playing with great intensity. Will they keep it up? 30 to go; so far so good.

    No way.

    McKenzie left the ground to deliver a shoulder to the chin of the Reds 9 with no mitigating circumstances.

    Pretty sure that kind of contact has been judged to be a red all year.

    He deliberately threw a shoulder at his head and threw his own out of the way. Absolutely no attempt to wrap an arm. That's been a red card forever, even if not often given. . Loved the humble post match from their skipper.

    Also a shout Grant Weber's academy award performance after the red was shown.

    I thought the red was for that grin he gets on his face when he's lining up a shot at goal..

    He was just genuinely surprised it was a red. A kiwi ref would have given at most a yellow or a penalty based on what has happened earlier in the tournament and in SR Aeoteroa.

    More like he was in a state of shock. Surprised is how the they look if they are penalised. Amazed if its a ruck infringement.

    So much easier to give a red card when it only impacts a team for 20 minutes.

    Agree much easier to give when impact is twenty. Did t like the tackle he jumped into it with shoulder leading. Only one way that is going to end.
