      will either of the relevant officials get demoted?

      Will they **** !!!

Still I don't blame Barnes for giving the penalty at first glance, the yellow and citing were a joke though
        Aye, I know, but you are in the 78min of a Six Nations match, you've bodies everywhere, you are trying to watch for infringements and as you look up you see a player with his legs in the air. Remember this is 100mph stuff and you don't have the benefit of slow motion action replays either.

        It WAS the wrong decision, but, given the above, I'm giving Barnes the benefit of the doubt.

        Pearson, on the other hand, should be admonished and removed from a few 6N games.

          Good news for Fez, as was said the whole situation is very unsatisfying.

            Only if he is cited can a disciplinary commission exonerate him.

            I thank you!

              I've wanted that for ages. Can't stand the smug grin he's always puttin on. I'm not a particularly violent man, but I have the stangest urge to want to punch him in the face.

                  Ferris cleared to play against France
                  Wednesday 8 February 2012
                  Ireland wing-forward Stephen Ferris has been cleared to play in this Saturday's RBS 6 Nations clash with France.

                  The decision not to suspend the Ulsterman was taken by an independent championship disciplinary committee at a hearing in London today.

                  Ferris was cited for a tackle on Ian Evans in the final minute of Ireland's 21-23 defeat to Wales. He was yellow carded by referee Wayne Barnes and from the subsequent penalty, Leigh Halfpenny was able to land the match-winning penalty for Wales.

                  Ireland will play France, who got their campaign off to a winning start with a 30-12 victory over Italy at the weekend, at the Stade De France in a Saturday night clash.

                  Ireland head coach Declan Kidney is due to name his selection for the clash at lunchtime tomorrow.

                  France have already named their team.

It is claimed DaviEs got off lightly. There is a maximum ban of 52 weeks. Halving that to 26 and giving the full 5 week reduction and banning for 21 weeks would be getting off lightly!!! What the hell do you have to do to somebody under this regulation to get a sentence that would actually be a deterrent?
                    I think a ban in that order would have been reasonable, it does look like someone has to be very seriously hurt before they act correctly. Missing 4 or 5 games is really no punishment at all.

                      Davies got 7 weeks.

                          Yep as I said I don't blame Barnes for the split-second decision and I suppose the yellow didn't really matter. For the citing officer to watch it in the cold light of day and recommend a citing was ridiculous.

                          Agreed on Pearson also, grow some balls and recommend a red.
                          If a man stands in the middle of the forest with no woman around to hear him - is he still wrong?

                            exactly what I was thinking. If they threw the book at Davies, it would have reflected poorly on the ref and linesman's decision.

                              Yes I saw it, but I would consider it to be aggressive counter-rucking rather than a cheap shot, he came through the middle from behind the hindmost foot and was making a legitimate effort to play the play rather than just playing the man.

                              I am no fan of foul play in the game and will never try to justify it, but this is not an example of it, there were other instances in the match I would view more as foul play than this one.

                                It's unfortuante for Davies that Ryan didn't have the ball in his hands, sure after the 7 weeks ban he got - It would have been justifiably only 2 if he was trying to stop a ball carrier from advancing.
