Tough. Red technically ok, but a yellow + penalty also. Now game is stacked, sadly. Stupid, stupid SBW.

What a dumb cnt move, SBW. :rolleyes:
Will say this, a collective drop of pee just came out of the Sky commentary team. Not for the shoulder charge 'tho, rather for the prospect of an hour or so of the Lions getting to play against fourteen men... Just a tad bit partisan.

Haha. Suppose that was to be expected.

If the game is won on a penalty because a player jumped just before the tackle then that would be very unfortunate.

I guess the lesson international coaches need to take from this is to have attacking players jump just before a tackle, just as soon as you're in kicking range. Any phase of play will do... :erm:

That is such bullschit, tbh. Sinckler literally jumps into Faumuina and it's a penalty? Can players just start jumping before contact and make it penalties?

Terrible game all round, to be honest. Horrid discipline from both teams, horrid refereeing. Garces is garbage. Why is he even refereeing at this level? He can't even explain his decisions to the players.

So the BL manage a win against 14 players. The last penalty spoiled the whole game. The All Blacks will take the last game.

Oh my God. The number of tackles in the air he missed during that 80 minutes...
