When I barge into a ruck, I generally look at where my studs land. I don't think any referee would allow me to walk all over someone's face and argue for my defence that my eyes were on the ball the whole time.
A bit in front, not so blantantly offside. The French commentators didn't even mention it during the game. But on the 2nd NZ try there is only one person to blame: Huget (French winger who gets sucked in and leaves 2 opponents on his empty wing). Maybe the Blacks are beatable after all :)
