So it's a known issue with the refs - so why not just tighten up on it now, rather than letting it go for a few more weeks before they even "address it", by which point it will be close to the end of the season.
All teams do it, some to more of an extreme than others, but very few put-ins now go down the tunnel. Sort it out, ref...!
