    First without a match ref.
    Every world cup bar 1999, has had at least 2 Irish referees

    Match officials for tournament announced. Ireland poorly represented.

    Craig has gone and half retired from rugby. He won't ref any more 15 a side games but will continue on the 7s circuit and will take up a development role with World Rugby.

    At least he's now admitting he was a coward. Whatever about making the wrong decision he should have faced the players afterwards

    And .............

    "Referee Craig Joubert has admitted with hindsight he would have reconsidered his decision to award Australia a contentious penalty which saw them edge Scotland 35-34 in a World Cup quarter-final at Twickenham in October.The South African has also admitted he ran off the pitch after blowing the final whistle to avoid confrontation with the players."

    Was it Ian McGeechan that coined the phrase: You don't have to win the match, just make sure you have more points on the board when the final whistle blows?

    Question really is who lost?, any fool knows AB's won but who lost. France according to record books, but overall rugby in general as the final has not been seen by many as a fair contest.
