Also the TMO or whatever they're called for "I can't see a knock on"
Didn't even refer to the best camera angle to make the decision
It's a tough old world but that should be the end of their international officiating - just incompetent no other word for it

I’ve also seen the ‘England won’t complain to WR’ line, but why should a review of dreadful officiating need to stem from one of the competing teams? You’d hope WR would review officiating as a standard matter. We wait to see when M. Gaüzère is next appointed to a meaningful fixture...

Pirates 10 was Luke Scully, who only arrived a few days ago on loan from Cardiff Blues. Very impressive.

My dog would have been better with the whistle than Gauzerre!

I understand England are not going to complain - but a sound track of Butler/Davies should be sent to whoever appoints referees.

Ah yes... looks similar to Garner.

Did he do the match last week as well as I heard on the ref mic him mention something about last week?  I couldn’t watch that match.

I agree with all of this. Pirates well worth the win today but will need to beef up their forwards before Sarries next week. The Pirates fly half was exceptional and work rate throughout exemplary. Jersey's fringe of ruck/maul defence was really poor today which in part explains the G861 remark about quick ball. The commentator today ascribed the fault to the Pirates scrum half try to the centre not guarding the ruck but surely a Prop or Flanker MUST GUARD the fringe of a breakdown not the centre who was marking his oppo. Jersey forwards did their job in scrum & lineout but they sorely missed a real open side flanker going forward. Jersey selected a back row today with three lads who could all have played No8 - strong defensively but going forward Pirates had the edge imo. I agree with G861 about the Blue Shirt - in St Ouens I wore Red.

The referee didn’t have any excuse for rustiness either.

Bit of a weird match, Blues clearly using it as a practice, while Ampthill wanted to win. If felt like Blues were pretty dominant but need to work on the breakdown and sometimes making the extra pass from some of the younger Saints players.

Blues were looking to run it all the time, so should be pretty entertaining to watch this year. Clearly the players were still getting used to playing with each other.

Agree GJ, Ampthill good for the win, too many penalties from Bedford in the first 25 minutes meant they took that 19 point lead we gave them the opportunity to. On a positive, we looked good in parts, but rusty, if we gel well as a team then we will be very hard to beat. I thought the live stream was excellent this afternoon, well worth the £10.
I want you all to line up in a circle and pair up in three's alphabetically by height.

Pirates 26 (4t I think) - Jersey 13 (1T) - Pirates still nippier around the pitch, but a Jersey interception stops the Cornishmen from pulling too far away.

Pirates 14 (2T) - Jersey 6 at HT. Pirates playing with more flair, Jersey looking strong in the set piece. From a neutral, both teams look well drilled. I think that the difference in the score is down to the Pirates having much quicker ball at the breakdown to create opportunities. Jersey in blue. Yuck.

Ealing 33 (5t) - Richmond 24 (4T) FT - Not sure what to make of this, Ealing started their 2nd team with a sprinkling of Academy lads, but Richmond are obviously amateur, so I think that Richmond are probably going to come away happier form this than Ben Ward's men.

Ealing 28 (4t) - Richmond 24 (4T) at about 72 minutes - Ealing's brought in quite a few academy lads, but really well played to Richmond, as they have taken advantage of some penalties.
