    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                This might be a bit off-topic but does anyone know if anything has done in the off season re the standard of referees in the Pro12? - appalling last year IMO

                Will it be the same scenario again next year where there isn't an overall body governing referees' in the Pro12 and the ref coming from one country and the linesmen/TMO from the home country?

                    Australia v New Zealand: Rugby fans to trial moving seats


                    Ever wished you were watching the game in a better seat?
                    The future of live sports entertainment may make that possible as rugby fans in Australia will be the first to pilot seats that will run along Sydney's Stadium Australia touchline on rails.
                    The chairs, developed by Samsung, can move at speeds of more than 12mph and will be introduced for the opening match of the Rugby Championship against New Zealand on 16 August.

                    Known as the Slideliner, the mobile bank of seats will offer the four occupants, who will be selected by a national competition, a new perspective on the game.
                    The Slideliner is controlled by an operator with a joystick, and the four winners will have to wear a safety harness in their seat.
                    There are also individually built-in cool boxes and a tablet screen so each fan can take pictures from one of the four cameras mounted on the device and post them on social media.
                    However, there is just one drawback - the seats are currently facing the wrong way.
                    "It's facing the crowd, which is not what you want, but certainly on the game day it'll be in front of the seats facing the game," said Arno Lenior, chief marketing officer of Samsung Australia.

                      I have a better Idea, maybe we could trial it at Thomond Park??
                      The fan stays where they are and the bar and jacks are transported to you when you require them.

                        I like that idea, but what about placing these fans on a mechanism like a giant sized old fashioned typewriter? Noise generated by the rest of the crowd moves them on a ratchet to one end of the terrace, and when they reach the end it goes "ping" they are fizzed at speed back to where they began.
                        Yorn desh born, der ritt de gitt der gue,
                        Orn desh, dee born desh, de umn bork! bork! bork!

                            Woodcock is out of the championship for NZ. Crockett is a fairly poor replacement. No particularly fearsome tight heads around down there to take advantage, however.

                            The Wallabies have no wingers, so will probably be going with AA Cooper and McCabe. Folau will have to do a lot on his own.

                            The Bokke will be missing Du Preez for the championship and Matfield for the first match. Juan Smith is back in the squad.

                            Argentina will be without Imhoff. Should be solid this year, but still haven't quite regenerated their squad.

                            Still New Zealand's to lose. South Africa have the best pack and some lightning backs, but they've come up short the last few years. Not sure they've found a way to win it yet.
