Did anyone else notice the poor and inconsistant
decisions made by Alain Rolland in the Scotland/France game.Scotland were constantly being told to retreat at rucks and mauls but the French were allowed to go in from the side, be constantly on the wrong side and generally interfere.Forward passes? Isnt one of Alain Rollands parents French by the way?
Alistair, you are another one of those pathetic guys...
can't you change or at least modify a bit the old song?
French played very well, outplayed the scotts, created their luck and their well deserved victory...
it's a new french team full of desire and providing an attractive game. credit to them
i really can't see the point to spit on the french again and again and again
you should be grateful to them for trying to develop an exciting rugby

True the pass forward but,
the TMO cannot rule on it,
it was nearly impossible to see at real speed it as players were way too close.
Forward ball movements are relatively easy to detect on a long pass, much less so on a short one.
Luck favors the bold, teams which kick the ball are unlikely to make any forward pass, and therefore are unlikely to be favored by the referee.
The best pass is always at the limit it of being forward, sometimes you may get away with it.

It wasn't just Scotland's match where there was poor reffing. The England throw-in just before they scored the try should have been disallowed - the catcher's foot was well inside the tram-lines and despite the ref looking straight at it he allowed it to carry on.
