    How little trust must the coaches have in Navidi.

    Surprising, he's a quality player

    Mistakes all over the place already.

    VDF twice

    Need to sharpen up

    "Next time it's a free kick"

    Are World Rugby rushing through a change to the rules right now? Is there a crisis meeting going on in the stands and Wayne is waiting for the word that the rules have changed.

    If it's a free kick in 5 minutes it's a free kick now.

    Every time there is an infringement you cant penalise it. You are often better off warning, trying to change behaviour other ways

    Barnes one of best refs in world.

    My pet peeve this game so far is, he's called "Use it" twice now and both times he's allowed seven or eight seconds to actually use the ball.

    He is the best ref at the moment though, for sure, you're right.

    Hasn't just called it but actually told Wales the next one is a free kick. So he's well aware they're ignoring his directions and he's still not calling it.

    Nothing against him as a referee just anytime I seen him reffing an Ireland match we have lost

    I was sure Lydiates ACL was gone there... surprised he even tried to run it off

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 294 ✭✭Scratchly

    Great linespeed from Ireland.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,728 ✭✭✭accensi0n

    Incredible kick by Murray.

    Its typical enough version of Barnes letting a game flow.

    "Thats your fifth last warning, the next one after the next two is a free kick"

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,717 ✭✭✭✭bilston

    Thats a red I'm afraid

  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 2,084 ✭✭✭statesaver

    Did he lead with the shoulder

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,004 ✭✭✭Euphoriasean

    In big trouble here

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 294 ✭✭Scratchly

    POM gonna be gone. Idiot

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 291 ✭✭Morathi

    Oh ****. POM absolutely getting a card here, and it'll be a joke if he doesn't.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,325 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers

    If the TMO comes into this POM is off

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,731 ✭✭✭✭mfceiling

    Murray has been beaten to the ruck to get the ball away a couple of times now. Needs to sharpen up.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,442 ✭✭✭its_phil

    POM gone. This could be red
