Cipriani Red Card

Just been a bit anal and did a bit of research if anyone`s interested. Of the regular starting 10`s Cips appears to be the third tallest and second heaviest. So maybe his tackling isn`t so shoddy. The lightest appears to be either Smith, Ford or Steenson. The tallest Flood, Farrell and Flood. There are a few short arses and lightweights but the rest are quite evenly matched.

Can we assume that since 3 pm today has gone there are no further citings from the W/E game and that Cips will face the beak on his own?

Just back from Limerick
Re the Cipriani incident, as already stated all the Munster fans i met during and after the match thought the ref was hopeless. He lost control ,was pedantic and badly affected the atmosphere in the ground.
My main point though is my wife and i had a superb long weekend in Limerick. The locals were really hospitable and friendly .Loved it !

Last week’s citings were announced lunchtime on Tuesday. The decisions to cite must be taken within 50 hours of the start of a match. So tomorrow from midday start scanning for news.

Even if there are no additions, there will be a “hearings announcement” to include the red cards issued.

BTW good article here about the difficulties of refereeing by a legal student blogger.

Thanks. Rather a good blog - and an interesting commentary on the disallowed try v Castres.

I always get concerned when lawyers/law students get involved in refereeing !! Witness Bruce Craig's attempts to use legal means to query (adverse) BBW results !!
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

Also, I noticed that Peter O'Mahony was again allowed to bind to the props thigh at every scrum. It is sanctionable by a penalty and therefore yellow card when repeated. It is illegal. Neither touch judge, referee or TMO seemed to spot this when it's quite clear. Hmm.

Another of the myriad of laws ignored in favour of "allowing the game to flow" without too many interuptions.

So my question is - why make all the bloomin' laws in the first place if you are just going to ignore them. Grrrrr! :x

Ed Slater should have spoken to the officials, as you are only allowed 3 in the front row.
