  1. I watched the Lions vs Cheetahs last night (recorded) and since when is tackling low illegal? FFS soon we will be playing touch rugby! I coached my guys to tackle big guys around the ankles but the ref penalized Lions for doing it…

  2. @JT_BOKBEFOK!: Our referees is useless no they are pass useless we will have to invent a new word just to describe how useless they are and Rasta has been the worst this season, Maybe he stayed with Steve when he was in Aus the past year.

    And do not get David started we will hit 100 comments in 30 min on this

  3. I have concluded that Indian bookies are paying off the IRB referees because fuck alone only knows what they are doing at games…

    I watched highlights of the games this weekend today and I swear I saw leads me to two conclusions

    1. The international refereeing is critically KAK quality.

    2. The fuckers are all in on some horrific conspiracy to decide who wins RWC every four years.

    I fail to see that all referees internationally from New Zealand to Scotland are universally kak…

  4. I will be at Ellispark for this one, my work is close to the stadium so will be ready for the the 6 o’clock kickoff
