Just wondered if anyone had seen the France v Samoa game and the alleged deliberate targetting of France's playmakers by the Samoan forwards ?
In a game that Samoa won with 13 players on the pitch ( apart from one ten minute sinbinning - which should have been a red card ), how different might it have been if an inept set of officials had not hidden behind the 'on report' facility.
There were three, possibly four, red card offences and William Barthau must be made of india rubber - he was lucky he wasnt maimed for life.
It was back to the very worst days of RL when brutality won the day over flair and invention.....
Should referee Henry Peranara ever be close to a top grade game of RL, on that display ?
