See that's the problem with being scrum focused team. You expect to have advantage in scurm but then half the time you get refs who have no idea how to judge a scrum so bye bye scrum advantage.

current state of rugby is unfair for good scrummaging teams.

This is a disaster of officiating.

Is this try coming back?

I can't stand Gareth on commentary he makes Spanton seem impartial.

This referee should be banned for international tests!!! He doesn't know rugby. He is blind. He doesn't see the game!!!

Touch judge spotted it - referee ignored him until the try was scored. Bizarre.

Linesman saw it, and put his flag out right away. I think the comms aren't working between the officials...

But I still don't understand how the ref didn't see the hit or the immediate flag.

At least Spanton is just a fan, not a paid RC shill.

Girth just parrots the company line that the lads are all heart and victims of bad luck and calls.

DSD has to get that ball to ground. He was running upright.

Canada heading for a loss here it looks like.

Commentary team is imbecilic, there was no argument that was reckless from DTH. He would have been lucky if the try being called back and just a penalty.

The yellow _was_ a bit harsh, he did not go for the player, but had eyes on the ball. And he knocked it on, so the try should have been invalidated anyway.

But what the hell was the ref doing? At what was he looking? Surely not the play...

I don't want to sound cocky but 8vs 7 scrum and Canadians don't advance 1 inch?your problems in scrum are big.

Yep I think that's correct, Spanton sometimes whinges a little about the officiating but he usually adds that Canada simply wasn't good enough at the same time.

What's with DSD and carrying the ball too high? This is something that should have been corrected in his game by now.

Game over.

Think I'm actually going to stay at home next week, unless someone from one of the local clubs I know has like a free extra ticket. It's not worth driving down to Hamilton to see Canada lose to the States.

Gareth just whining like when he played second div for Ravens and couldn't pull his jersey over his gut. Seriously.

Romania is winning 22-9. Slow play by Romania is predictable and not to blame.

And again a desperation pass after a long gain. Possession lost.

Yes exactly. Not the Oaks problem Canada have failed to take advantage of opportunities and have coughed up the ball with white line fever.

At least Mack giving a spark.

And it's FUBAR again!

Dreadful stuff really. Canada have had a man advantage for half an hour in this game and not even one try.

Only positive I can think of for Canada is the set piece was functional. Loose play was embarrassing, the passing was like that of a bunch of 11 year olds.

Goodness knows how bad the result would have been had Ardron not goaded that red card out of the Oaks player.

I'm staying home next week, fuck this.

Edit: I think the way the game was today show's how bad a decision it was to screw the pooch on last week's lineup, utterly no continuity established.

Maybe RC should stop fielding Men's XV and just focus on club competitions.

Unless one of my daughters plays club rugby, RC will never see another dime from me.

Canada is basically the Cleveland Browns of rugby. New coaches, players, promises. Constant futility.
