    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

        Missed this report at the time. So Rolland got his knuckles rapped in October.

        As, I'm reliably informed, had happened in September, when he robbed Munster of a win in Todger Park by penalising a dominant visiting pack, late in the game.

        Let's all hope that he gets it right in Thomond Park on Saturday.

        Australian Rugby Union welcomes IRB statement on weekend's substitution ruling


        Australian Rugby Union welcomes today’s admission from the International Rugby Board that match officials were at fault when they blocked a replacement by the Qantas Wallabies and left the Australians a man short for the final 14 minutes of last Saturday’s Castrol EDGE Rugby Championship match with South Africa in Pretoria.

        The Qantas Wallabies attempted to replace the injured Tatafu Polota-Nau with fellow hooker Saia Faingaa, only to be told by match officials they were prohibited from making further substitutions.

        Prop Benn Robinson was forced into a makeshift role as lineout thrower, scrums moved to uncontested and the Qantas Wallabies – in the face of a crushing injury toll – were forced to navigate the final quarter hour with only 14 players on the field.

        They had earlier lost prop James Slipper to the sin bin, during which time the Springboks scored two of their five tries, one of them from a rolling maul while No.8 Radike Samo was being treated by medical staff for injury and the Australian pack was reduced to six forwards.

        The match official team was led by referee Alain Rolland, who under the Laws of the Game, is the sole judge of fact.

        In this instance the referee and his team failed to interpret the law correctly.

        ARU hopes the referee has learnt from this error.

          Pure magic from the wonderful Hernandez, during the recent Rugby Championships.

            What could have been the best Championship is now perhaps the worst, AB dominance combined with Aus continuing slump, Puma freefall and Saffer's living in the past. Attendances also in freefall. And they still give out about the 6N..

              This is the Argentina performance that normally gives us a rwc spanking

                Brody Retallack is simply a freak of nature, head and shoulders above any other second row in the world right now he has better hands than most of the aussie backs.

                      New Zealand 46 Argentina 24

                      Sounds like a routine win but Argentina put in a very good performance. Couple of late tries from NZ padded out the score in a close game. Argentina look a completely different team under Ledesma.
