    On your substantive point, yes Nigel and maybe Joubert are better than Garces, though after Joubert gave the most one eyed refereeing performance ever in the last RWC final, I'm not at all in agreement on that one and as for Poite being better than Garces.... ehhhhhh no :)

      For me, the only ref who comes close is Garces, & tbh I think Nigel still shades it

      What I don't like about Owens is his lack of consistency. I've no issue with refs not seeing everything- that's not possible. However I think he likes to make a name for himself and is well aware of his public image.

      Ireland v NZ - he pings Mc Grath in the 78th minute for sealing off. NZ had been sealing off the entire game but he chose that minute to ping someone

      Metro v northampton- same offence again. Northampton prior to that ruck also had been sealing off - he chose the 79th minute to ping Metro for it and decide the game.

      If you'e not going to apply it for the whole game don't play God at the end.
      I always knew Madigan was a closet Scrum Half. Ignore All things that suggest Continuity.

        There you go Nigel! If your'e reading? Outlaw has just highlighted why you are not as good at your job as you should be. If you could just iron out those couple of flaws, you might become one of the most respected refs in professional rugby.

          plus, do a simple google image search for him, he ALWAYS looks half asleep
          Just imagine how good Garces will be when he finally wakes up.

            Seemingly our Nigel has taken to the hurdling.

              You could pick out lots of examples from the England-France game too. He's not a bad ref but his style is the opposite of pedantic - he likes to ensure a free-flowing game and, inevitably, that means he'll miss a lot of offences. Other referees might not have such a feel for the flow of the game or whatever, but they'll make more correct decisions, and people always ask for consistency.
