Wales keep their extra man advantage though:That's very 'big' of him . . .
The Frenchman has come under severe criticism after Saturday's Six Nations clash, with World Rugby's Head of Match Officials now saying Gauzere has admitted his mistakeswww.walesonline.co.uk
Watched half of it, mainly up to and including the analysis of the 2 decisions. Huge errors, all 4 'refs' should be spoken to, and the one time Biggar's opened his gob without screaming and shouting, he got the answer he wanted; "time on". Very smart thinking.
What we know is, Wales are very very disciplined, are no mugs and have had the rub so far, but averages tell us that 'rub' won't continue.
Yesterday I watched a YouTube clip by a football ref using a series of Nigel Owens clips to illustrate a) how respectful of the ref rugby players are compared to soccer players and b) good man management by a top class ref.He's a nice guy, I think his courage in coming out and talking about his HIV status has added a much needed facet to rugby culture.
Nigel Owens on desert island discs is worth a listen too
That's the beauty of the 6 nations. I still don't see england doing well until the caps/player ratio is over 25, and we get a captain in the back row. Shifty little midgets just don't cut it.In other words we beat the opposition.
56 million of you in England but this modest nation of 3 million can still thrash you at rugby ( occasionally)
