@ melkdave...wales need to learn to adapt to the ref that is why they lost on the weekend, they could not adapt to the way the ref called the game

What you need is for the ref to implement the law correctly and that will nullify Pocock.

dave, for once I agree with you.
Let's not blame the ref, as wales missed chances, and genia was great.
But pernickity Joubert, correct on OK for taking the ball away, but only talking to Aus for not retiring at kicks, which were material, as the oppsite, not retiring polayers were then in support, a metre away instead of 10 metres back.
Also, getting bloody players off the field is a requirement, not an interpretation!
No matter who he is, not waiting until it is convenient!
Also high tckles and taking players out in the air should be acted on, not ignored.
Oh yes, Wales have him again in 2 weeks!

A referee not letting him lay over the ball or put his hands in the ruck or be off his feet would help .He got away with murder last weekend ,just as against the bokkes at the RWC ..But ill not blame the ref ,Wales other failings on the day was more than enough to consign them to the loss.Lack of intensity.bad passing /offloads bad kicking and chase ect ect.Now that Wales have been stung , Maybe they will play to their potential although the task of securing a series victory is now 2-3 times harder than before imho
