    I thought it was a bit high on Slater, Pete. The most blatant ones were that shot and the one on Inglis. It just beggars belief that they weren't penalised. I wish Papa was playing tonight to give one to Gal.

    I'm not sure but wasn't there something about having an ex-player involved as they understood the game better than non-players?

    Can't remember fully.

    Yes - ironically, the rulings are now more confusing than ever. Referrals for obstruction are basically a "spin the wheel" situation.

    I just roll my eyes whenever there is talk of a bunker/war room situation. It's a bit of a joke.

    I reckon the solution is pretty simple. Video refs should not be allowed to watch and follow the game. They sit in a darkened room and only see the footage when a decision is referred. That way they can apply a black and white ruling - which would help us get consistency.
    It would've been, had they validated Thaiday's totally legal try!
