...So the referee is higher than the substitutes?

Midweek Madness - The Nigel Owens quick wit compilation

To be fair, I began this whole thing with a sarky comment about conspiracy theories, however to answer the things you pointed out:

First video - Referees don't see everything, if there was no way of seeing the number then how could he have sent a player off? Could he have identified a player by appearance alone? No distinguishing features such as a bright scrum cap or something like that...

Second video - Looked like the Racing player was away - BUT to me it looked like he knocked it on, are referees allowed to award a try if they cock up and blow the whistle? Seems like he blew the whistle so other players could argue they didn't chase... Referees routinely get in the way, or players run close to them - so it's another thing you'd expect, whistle blow, restart.

Third video - Attempts to catch in first instant - knocks ball backwards with back of hand or wrist and into touch - harsh, but there was no way he could have caught it with the back of his hand...

Fourth video - Can't watch it, some French conspiracy has made it unavailable...

Fifth video - Kicks a bloke up the arse - Looks like Quinlan milked it, so I'd be happy for him to be carded too, but aside from what that idiot Barnes said, why wouldn't that be a yellow??

Sixth video - I'm a massive advocate of players dishing out their own punishment when being pulled or held, so I personally don't see anything wrong with a player doing it - REGARDLESS of nationality.. However Nige missed this one, you can see he looks away just before the hit - I'd say this is a touch judge at fault not him...

....Can we see more videos of Kok? The comment section is really making my day... Maybe a compilation of Kok smashing people and juggling balls..?

Nigel Owens with another first as he sinbins a ball boy!

To be fair, Nigel Owens is a world class referee. On face value it doesn't seem comparable to a players jersey, but reality is, Nigel is a top referee.... it's a brilliant gesture...

Springboks put policy in place to prevent losing players to overseas

I think SA have a few other policy issues which are causing their team to suffer which will far outweigh any good that can come of this new policy....
