lol, that was retarded. Instead of giving away a scrum they give away a penalty.

I briefly switched over to the Six Nations to listen to the anthems of Ireland and Wales at the Millennium Stadium.

Goosebumps...

..... the knock happened first, penalty should not have been awarded

He did exactly that when SBW knocked on. He waited and then blew him up for holding on. Guess the idea is he gives advantage and sees what happens. Penalty is more advantageous, so he gives that.

Stormers scrum went from hero to zero when they replaced the front row.

Exciting match. Chiefs and NZ teams overall play smarter rugby.

Know when to commit numbers to rucks and when not. Know when to run it from deep and know when to kick for territory.

And the support play.

In the immortal words of James May, "Permission to say 'Oh c*ck' ".

Well played Chiefs. Newlands will be an insufferable place right now. I'd imagine the 'Cape Crusaders' are going mad...

Was it REALLY nessecary to change the front row at that time?

I think not.

That is one thing I give the Bulls credit for.

Frans Ludeke has said it on numerous occasions. Just because he has players on the bench doesn't mean he MUST play them. If the players on the field are doing their part, they stay on.

Well, we had to lose our first game to a classy team, although with the ref playing his part by not using his cards.

Now for the cheaters to rape the sardines :D
