    Refs are, to my mind, ruining the game by their consistent failure to consistently penalise obvious offences.

    Crooked feeds to both Scrum and Lineout, forward passes, off side at and around rucks are penalised rarely if ever.

    Itoge did not get a yellow for clocking Kearney solely because he had already got one and he would have been off permanently.

    (Do you really think that us arguing on line about this is going to change how Refs (mis)manage games? )
    Sorry, not having a go at you personally, but to see Leinster supporters having a go at Garces today after dismissing Munster supporters complaints about a far worse refereeing performance in the semifinal is a bit irritating​​​​​​.

      What was the booing about? Someone said it was sectarian?!

        Booing big Billy I reckon. He may be the darling of English rugby but he’s still a big homophobic eejit.

        The sectarian comment was just a bit of piss taking about the Ulster incident.

              Interesting from JS when asked about them not putting ball out b4 half time he said they took a decision to put more pressure on saracens and try to score again.
              so hardly mcgraths fault then ,big turning point in the game

                Anybody else have the Carlow Community Radio with former Irish outhalf Mick Quinn commentary? Somehow they made it onto Rugbypass.com. Billy Vuinopolo like the Dublin to Tullow train with Meath minor hurlers coming up. Not sure what the Aussie's made of it.

                  Can also get you in trouble. We’ll see what comes of the investigation into their breach of the salary cap. Might not be a European force for much longer.

                    Leinster missed Dan Leavy today.
                    Garces just not a good referee,unless you support Saracens of course.
                    Agreed, Leavy is in a class of his own, in competition for the Irish seven jersey. I can't help but feel a lot of Leinster's players get an easy ride from the media. Imagine if Farrell/McCloskey had blown a chance like this: https://twitter.com/Murray_Kinsella/...81695135125504

                        It’s going to be a long few days hearing about how Garcès ruined the game, and that Sarries are cheating financially and all that Bla Bla Bla.




                        The stronger, faster, fitter and better team won.

                            That was shocking from Ringrose. Can’t wait to see wummisky admit McGrath isn’t upto it, oh wait that ll never happen! Right I’m off to the babbling brook to gloat.. oh wait I actually have a life

                              Since Toulon beat Clermont in Dublin in 2013 the champions have been:

                              Toulon Toulon Toulon Saracens Saracens Leinster Saracens

                              I just don't understand why people are suddenly mentioning financial clout, it's 6 of the last 7 titles handed out IMO

                              Hardly something new or different at this stage.

                                The problem is that the full picture is not in the public domain. The English clubs are supposed to be on a level playing field financially but Sarries are allegedly playing games by hiding pay to some players, who they recruited, put through their academy, trained, developed etc etc.

                                But it’s all nonsense really, of the starting teams Leinster have more big money imports (Fardy, Lowe, Henshaw) than sarrie (williams), and Sarries are as forthcoming with their actual spend on players as Leinster are.
