      He does the same at 2 minutes 10 seconds for the second penalty try.
      In fact , I hadn't noticed (until looking at that clip) just how Saints scrum is so effective , and totally illegal. In fact Poitte ( Prat ) is looking straight at the offenders without seeing the offence, or choosing to ignore it.
      On 16 secs, almost immediately after the engage, Tonga'uiha turns in at 45 degrees under the shoulder of Hartley who comes up to let him in. Wian Dp is tucked in nicely under Mujati. ,
      On 17 secs Tonga' is now turned in fully 60 degress under Hartley ,who in tandem with Mujati seem to be putting downward and sideways pressure on WDP, which is impossible to withstand. The key here is Tonga' s 60 degree sideways bore...totally illegal. This move makes BJ's forward pressure practically redundant, if not in fact an "assist" to the Saints sideways pressure.
      On 18 secs Tonga' still boring in at an obvious angle, while their 6,4,5.7 drive the angle.
      On 19 secs Hartley and Mujati are fully up and going forward with Tonga' still at 45degrees.
      On 20 secs Tonga' up now too. POM breaks his bind as the scrums wheels .
      On 23 secs POM does indeed block the ball with his foot half a meter from the line and Poitte (Prat) blows and immediately awards a PT.

          Curious to know how the TM Official figured that it was a Saints put in for their second PT scrum. Clearly it was a Tong'uia knock-on and not a Murray knock-on. This is an official who has the benefit of replay and slow motion......needs sacking!!!!!!!

            iirc it was our put in and we took it but Saints wheeled that 1st scrum and Poite gave them the put in for the reset. In the highlights they skip to the reset.

              No we took an age to set our scrum. Poite penalised us and Saints choose a scrum obviously

                Thanks Exisle for that analysis.
                It has been well noted elsewhere that we failed to come up with countermeasures to NH scrum, but on reflection just one scrum in the second half, and slick handling at pace was the best way to deal with this.
                A competent ref would help too.

                  Didn't see O'Callaghan or Ryan going for the choke tackle in the second half either. Also, when Saints kicked a restart straight out on the full, Paulie went for the lineout instead of the scrum.

                    Thanks Munstershane and MrsMcGahan , I stand corrected on that, I had forgotten the reset, so apologies to the TM.
                    I'm starting flagellation as we speak.

                        I think he gave Man of the Match to Zebo in the end. The clip just shows him discussing Saints players. (Although watch Botha's try, and ask yourself how Manoa could have been outstanding in defense. Its easy to fool Sky with a few big hits even if you can't do the basics)

                        I'm sure Stuart Barnes would have found a way to give it to Courtney Lawes.
