So, lots of controversy here in England over some referee blunders, but it is not the first time during a test match that a team got caught out.
Who would forget the boks first loss in many years against Ireland when John Smit turned around to talk to his men, only for a sneaky irishman to take a quick tap and score which led to the irish recording a famous win Dublin.
That said, England was on the receiving end, but you would have thought that they would have learned their lesson only to be caught napping yet again when the welsh 9 took another quick tap to score.
I for one think that this culture of, talk to your men should end. So many teams play negative and slow the game down in their own 22. The all blacks are masters at this and how often would you see 3 or 4 penalties, then the talk to your team which allows them to reset and catch their breath.
My view is that this needs to end, they are professional players that should know the rules. Best time to talk to your men is either berfore , break or after the tame. Resets, scrums line outs or scrums or when you are standing under your post while the other team attempts a conversion.
So, well done Wales for speeding the game up and look for dropped heads through out the game to make the most of it.
One thing that school boys learn and even when I use to play back then was that you never turn your back, always alert.
Lets hope we can end this silly talk to your team nonsense and have more game time on the field rather than stupid water boys running on to soak up time
