    Shows the importance of Always following up, just in case. Think it went over but couldn't say for sure.

        ruddy hell .. the replays certainly make it look like the original penalty kick went over. And as for the camera angle for the try that was dodgy as bedamned.. so much for the TMO!

          ASM Clermont Auvergne v Munster Rugby, Stade de la Mosson (18.00)
          Referee: Nigel Owens (Wal); Assistant referee 1: Leighton Hodges (Wal); Assistant referee 2: Ian Davies (Wal); TMO: Gareth Simmonds (Wal); Citing Commissioner: Douglas Hunter (Sco)

          Hope Gareth (TMO in that match) does the same on Saturday allows Zebo a dodgy try after ROG hits the post.

            It also shows that Nigel is always Right !!!!

            So POC needs to learn how to work with Nigel when it comes to decisions not going our way. Stiff upper lip and all that sometimes is a good thing........

              It's only a matter of time before Nigel Owens becomes our Welsh Romain Poite

                Nig might not have had his greatest game in the Leinster match but he is generally the best ref going IMHO. He is clear and generally consistent. Personally I am delighted he is officiating on Saturday.

                      I have an issue with players contacting refs - even through twitter - outside the match itself. There are channels for formal contact between clubs and refs. On the pitch there is some scope for players particularly captains to talk to refs. But why is this trend growing that seems to indicate that ongoing contact is OK? It makes it difficuly to demonstrate that players are not attempting to influence refs off the field of play - improper influence potentially?

                        I think Kearnage sent the pic to the wrong fellow.

                          Totally agree, and of course that's what players and/or coaches will try to do unless the Irb bring in adhered to guidelines here to nip this stuff in the bud.

                            Did they get the conversion by the way?
