    @ nortierd:

    @ MacroBull:
    We were not ‘seen’ things, I watched the replay last night
    SA referees will always be instructed to bend games, most will follow it (except of Lawrence and Kaplan in their days), SANZAR reverted back to Neutral referees at the beginning of this season, it must be they permitted that stench of using local referees due to a cost cutting motives Angry
    And you are absolutely right, SARU is ruining the product they try to market; last season already indicated a ratings drop of the SR due to scoundrels who took out the upset element!
    Saying that, Berry didn’t penalise often the Blues for their persistent offside at the rucks, their forward passes (last 3 tries) and heinous hits by the PIs, so the Lions supporters can feel that his bias was ‘balanced’
    No mitigation for V.d.Merwe though, hope the Reds will raise a hell with SANZAR and the ARU!
    We shall see Tue if the Refs’ assignment are affected

    @ Puma:
    Congratulations Your team did very well Puma, Sharks are probably our Saffas’ only chance of winning this comp. BUT faaark bru, that Doc Jannie pissed us supporters off big time with his arrogance! Please get rid of this prick and save us all the embarrassment of listening to his constant girlish wailing and lecturing the refs(..and please send him for some English classes after hours!) He was useless against the Pumas last season and got his arse handed to him during the eoyt as well. The man has a real kuk attitude, very unprofessional conduct for a medical doctor,imo.
