You've not had Tim Wigglesworth then...?

Sara Cox may not be the best referee at this level but she certainly is not the worst. To ascribe her ascent as any form of gender based bias is or positive discrimination is very hard to justify. I’ve seen regular Premiership, even international referees have howlers. The referee wasn’t perfect but she wasn’t out of her depth.


Confirmed my previous post and I never suggested for one minute that they were not the best match official at the Championship level, but keep on defending this match official. As to being female, you are the one who raised this, so you clearly have some point you wish to make.


Your vehement clarification that you weren't referring to the referee's gender is noted ES...

Clearly has difficulty with the high tackle concept, which prevents yellow cards from being produced.

I’m sure the diversity crew will jump in to defend, but clearly the RFU need to take a long hard look when they are pushing this agenda.



What did you mean when you referred to 'the diversity crew' and 'this agenda'?

Sara Cox did her first game in Jersey in January, v Bedford; a thoroughly competent job & she was hardly mentioned afterwards, by either winning or losing team - this is invariably a good thing where officials are concerned

Ahead by 5-7 points in a must-win game? Awarded a kickable penalty with a couple of mins to play, which if successful effectively guarantees the win? I'd be screaming myself ho@r$€ to get the tee on!


Dropping the BP puts Ealing 10 points back - effectively as bad as a loss from a promotion perspective given that Irish hold the tiebreaker on points differential. Normally I would agree with sealing the win.


the four-point win is as bad as a loss?! apart from the first result gets you four pts & the latter - in this case - just one... Confused

i can see the case for gambling and going for the full house, it's certainly not a clear-cut decision either way; but personally i would want to eliminate the chance of losing first before i chanced my arm on icing the cake

Pleased and happy for you to point out exactly where after the LS v Blues game I claimed the performance of the match offical was to blame for the LS lost to the Blues? I would suggest you can’t.

Still waiting Bluesman11 and if you can’t I would also suggest you remove or edit your post accordingly.



Looks like Bluesman11 has let their belly rumble yesterday and has been spouting rubbish. Man up and correct your post if you have the bottle to do so. Otherwise no one will take seriously anything you post on these message boards.
