Rugby vs. the Ref

How did it come to this? Rugby really has become a game that you watch selectively based on who the Referee is. Not sure if i will bother watching the All Blacks vs. Springbocks this weekend – and those who know how passionate I am about all things All Blacks know what a strong statement that is. 

Spiro sums up our predicament well:

This test, too, is being overseen by a northern hemisphere referee, the Irishman George Clancy, a negative journeyman who has little sympathy it seems, or understanding, for the modern fast-moving, high-skilled game the All Blacks are trying to play.

Why bother. He will kill this game like all others he has Reffed this season.
