You admit your faulty generalisation but still goes ahead with it.
That says something, I guess.

You must be joking! Or watched the game with your glasses on the sideboard!
The toe of Little's left foot was barely touching the line, (not over it)
when he kicked it with his right. The 22 meter line is in the 22 (just
as the goal line is in goal). I also watched it twice in slowmo. He was ripped
off! The touchjudge had it right and bevan over-ruled him.

Australia seem to be laying over the ball a bit too much, particularly when
the opposition is getting close to their line. The offenders should be
sin-binned for this type of offence. There's a big points difference between
a converted try and a penalty. And as for Eales holding Walter Little's
jersey just before jason Little scored......... He used to be Mr Nice Guy.
It spoils the game a bit.

I don't disagree -- sin binning may be a good option for a ref when
there is consistent infringing like this. But it's amusing listening
to all this kiwi whingeing lately -- you guys taught the rest of the
world how to be the consumate professional foulers.

And holding somebody's jersey is such a heinous act when compared with
-- oh I don't know -- Ian Jones rucking the bejeebers out of some
unfortunate props head?

Wise up already.

I don't think it was on the head for a start.  But if you lie on the ball
thus preventing it from coming out, you pay the price for your bravery /
down-right stupidity.  Not on the head, but any where else is fair game.

Bottom line.

Get over it.

Move on.
