That's an interesting stat. By the time Read got sent of (74th minute or so), they showed last 10 penalties. Since the 24th minute, NZ were penalized 8 times and Australia only twice. It gave me the impression NZ were penalized considerably more. My bad.
The funny thing is the suggestion that one All Black prop is the most heavily penalized. In my opinion that means he might be cheating (of just bad at his job) but quite obviously he is not getting away with it, hence the penalties. »
To my knowledge: for a knock on, the ball must move in the direction of the opposition's goalline. That doesn't seem to be the case here so I am okay with that try being awarded. I am not okay with the petulant behaviour shown by Biggar though. »
