Oval Talk wants to give a hearty slap on the back to Brendan Venter after his very public attack on the confusion that surrounds refereeing of the breakdown in the Guinness Premiership.
The Sarries boss will almost certainly receive some form of punishment from the RFU for his prolonged - though intelligent and well-researched - criticism of Premiership referees and how they are making a complete horlicks of the breakdown.
Venter (pictured) was fuming after his side had lost a dull encounter against Leicester. It was not the fact that Saracens had fallen to their second defeat on the bounce, but that he had no idea why his side saw a penalty count heavily in their favour switch dramatically against them in the second half.
Venter's articulate attack lasted 40 minutes, but in a nutshell the South African argued that the breakdown had become a lottery, that referees were alternating which side they penalised, and that they were giving far too much "preventative" advice to players during a game.
It is hard to disagree with any of Venter's points, save perhaps an accusation of a lack of "professionalism" with referees, and OT hopes that the spotlight remains on the issue because there is no doubt rugby has a fundamental problem.
Despite an increase in Premiership attendances this season - amazing when you consider the economic times and mostly dreary fare on offer this term - rugby has become difficult to watch, and even more difficult to predict.
The laws of rugby have always been complicated - that is one of the joys of the sport - but at present it appears that no-one has a clue what is happening at the breakdown... and that includes players, coaches and referees.
Seriously, does anyone know exactly what the laws are at the breakdown? OT suspects not.
The breakdown has become a wrestling free-for-all - whatever happened to players staying on their feet? - and teams are now hesitant to attack for fear of losing possession. Surely there should be an advantage to the team taking the ball into contact, an advantage that allows them to retain possession and develop an attacking play.
Forget accusations from the sport's governors that the problem lies with coaches, the problem lies with the laws of the game and the lawmakers. OT has had the 'pleasure' of watching plenty of Premiership games this season and there is no doubt the English top-flight is in danger of becoming a bore fest.
Yes there have been some decent games and moments of excitement, but they have been few and far between during a procession of defence-dominated matches that feature whistle-happy refs and extended periods of kicking. The same can be said of much of the autumn internationals, Top 14 and Celtic League.
There are plenty of theories on how to solve the problem - prevent the tackler competing for possession, allow the tackled player to keep hold of the ball, bring back rucking - but until more coaches follow Venter's example it is unlikely the lawmakers will pay much attention.
Indeed, they will hide behind commercial stats showing the game is in rude health and continue to blame coaches for failing to adopt an attacking mindset.
