Law discussion: Similar incidents treated differently
They are different matches with different referees, and similar incidents are treated differently. By Paul Dobson, Moonsport.
Law Discussion: Lawes and laws
For the second week in a row, Twickenham was host to a one-point Test and a refereeing controversy late in the match which involved the use or non-use of the TMO.
The referee had received a "check-check" from the TMO and consults him. There are replays showing what happened - that Farrell turned side on and the hard knob of the right shoulder made strong contact with Esterhuizen's upper chest. By Paul Dobson, Moonsport.
Law discussion - ball lost, try lost
There are only a few minutes to play. Toulouse are leading Bath by two points - 22-20. Freddy Burns kicks a penalty from slap in front. The ball strikes an upright and stays out but fullback Burns gets a golden chance of redemption. By Paul Dobson, Moonsport.
