More referee controversy as All Blacks make it a clean sweep over France

This is so frustrating. I would love to complain but...meh. I have to admit that the pass is not as forward as it looked. When you see it from multiple angles, it's most probably OK.
And, whatever the rule (ahem, law) says regarding that ref being in the way, what's obvious is that Serin had to defend alone VS blacks. Remove Lacey from the pitch and they still get that try almost every time.
I won't spit on RD tough, because the controversy was there wether you like it or not. Numerous reactions, also from NZ, pointed out this incident. Some of them calling Lacey an idiot.

Benjamin Fall sent off for flipping Beauden Barrett as All Blacks secure series win

It might sounds pretty stupid but this idea of an "orange card" is interesting: http://www.rugbyworld.com/news/rugby-orange-card-92576

Clearly, there must be a way to treat differently an unintentional offense on one hand and foul play on the other. Straight reds for "objective" reasons (head, mid air...) not considering malice is always gonna be messy.

Remy Grosso hospitalized with double skull fracture after brutal collision

Didn't see the game but I guess one don't have to to get that there where serious refereeing issues.
So sad for Grosso. I like his skills and attitude.
The guy has a double skull fracture but he gets back on his feet!

Ugly scenes amidst referee shocker as Spain fail to qualify for the World Cup

Just read on L'Equipe:

"Romanian Rugby Association statement: "Referee Vlad Iordachescu's appointment to Challenge Cup QF Pau-Stade Francaise was cancelled for security reasons. One of the teams is using Spanish national team players & also there is a geographical proximity to Spain""

Can't see the video but the journalist of L'Equipe says it's plain to see the ref did favor Belgium.

Hilarious Haskell reaction. Or the lack thereof.

Ugly scenes amidst referee shocker as Spain fail to qualify for the World Cup

Fair enough from the devil's advocate point of view.
But then it was not only a romanian ref, but a romanian trio.
Best way to prevent bias (or the mere suspicion of it) is to have different countries represented.
