I believe Kellock didnt deserve a yellow card because he never got one. Funny that Poite gave John Beatty a yellow card after a running disagreement between the two about the Frenchmans refereeing.Poite was heard quite clearly saying to Beattie he had had enough and to stop his chat against him. It actually seemed a petulant decision by Poite and a pay back for Beatty's criticism of Poites poor scrum refereeing. Have a look at the binding of the front rows that went unchecked by Poite and dishing out penalties against the non perpetrators. The card was not deserved Suliven as the ball was not killed and the backs were well covered. However Poit'es coup de grace against the Scots was to finally give up the ghost with his leg as Scotland were mounting a serious attack. The fact he did his leg minutes before this move and continued on despite not being fit to continue shows the lengths this French referee went to spoil the Scots chance of winning. It was obviously a deliberate attempt by Poite to cause maximum damage to the Scots efforts and a cheeky move to allow England to win the game. Referees like Poite who deliberately do these kind of things should be stood down for the rest of the season. LOL.

As a staunch (but honest) England supporter I can say that I sympathise with Robbo.
His players played out of their skins, easily their best in the six nations, and deserved better. Big thing though, you have to win your set piece. Fail to do that and no matter how well the rest goes you'll struggle. Scotland will play worse than that and win other games. England have to play better if they have serious ambitions to do well in the world cup. Exciting game to watch for all its flaws.

Nearly did it, & at Twickenham too! Thought all the Scots played so well.
Big thanks to the ref for some great decisions - Kellock SO deserved that yellow! Thank you to my new friend Brian Moore for reasonable, fair & honest comments (not being sarcastic anymore!!!!!), it really helps when a commentator actually points out the bad stuff. Speaking of... "Let's have a go at what Wales did yesterday,lads"- at least M'sieur Poite was on that! (Did he really have to get cramp in the middle of a great attack by the Scots? There is no God!)
Seriously, very proud of all the laddies. Hope Kelly Brown is OK.
