Yeah, New Zealand look sloppy and are playing well within themselves. Haven't got out of first gear.

Come on Tonga!
Give the ones with matching boots an old fashioned bruising at least.

Incredible try from ABs.

Also, New Zealand must be the only team in world rugby that are happy to regularly leave their hooker on the wing!

Fantastic last scrum from ABs - you could see they were much lower than Tonga with better body positions

Lacey copped out. Twice they should of gotten a pen try and typically the ABs get away with just a yellow.

Lacey bottled it big time and then should never had blown the whistle as Tonga were still in possession and going for the line.

I think Lacey blinked there.

Should have been a 2nd yellow and penalty try.

If NZ win the whole shooting match it's certainly devalued now Wink

Seems extremely unfair if the referee stops play to check if a try was scored that the game does not restart if time is up. The break of play did not come because Tonga turned the ball over or made a mistake or lost possession in any way. It came because the referee intervened. He could have chosen to let Tonga play on and checked back later..

This needs to be looked up by the lawmakers as well as a general review of protocol surrounding the use of the TMO.

I've wondered about this before. There's no reason why Lacey couldn't have waited another phase or two and then called it back. It's not like there was an injury or an unplayable ball.

The ref should have given pen try for pulling down the maul and why Lacy stated use it was a cop out. Up to the last 5 mins the ref was having a good game. Shame for the game and fairness.

is that the default setting for an all black fan. If things aren't going well, it must be the refs fault?

I'd say the Aussies or SA. Japan have done nobody any favours by beating them. Having said that, a Japan/SA rematch would be brilliant and surely what the neutrals would like to see Smile

Conversely after the 2011 final Craig Joubert and his girly lips was the best ref in the world apparently.

TBF there were Tongan players asking for the try, so that is probably why he went upstairs.

Penalty for being taken out while retreating from the ruck. That's a new one.
