André Watson looks back on 1999 RWC final in Referee Perspective feature

Well, that section around the 2-minute mark is illuminating!
An Australian demands a penalty; Watson awards it.
Pretty much his blueprint for the 2003 final!

Eddie, Apparently they decided his performance in the 2003 final was so shit they've now struck if from the history books.

Levani Botia smashes Tonga to set up great Fijian try in Pacific Nations Cup

Love it. Absolutely nailed the first guy and the other two would-be tacklers looked like they'd had second thoughts after the first one had been squished.

Can't honestly say I've never accidentally tripped over a teammate after seeing another one getting completely mullered by the guy I'm meant to try to tackle next.

All Blacks start Rugby Championship strong with Argentina win

You've got me thinking...

That wonderful moment (sorting out that dickhead Van Zyl) and the knee to Morgan Parra's noggin in the last world cup are the only McCaw acts of violence I can think of. Are there any others?

If that's it, he's shown impressive restraint over such a long career with plenty of people targeting him and trying in vain to wind him up.

Sensational Stepper Nehe Milner-Skudder's Tribute Video

Good post DrG.

To extend the observation to the Pacific islands, did you see that interview with the Tuilagis a while ago where they were asked to explain why rugby was so much more popular in Samoa than football. Alesana deadpanned "have you tried kicking a coconut?"

Ed Morrison admits that Springboks probably scored try in 1995 World Cup Final

Very decent of you to make this point Eddie. I agree, I think Cueto scored. However, I did feel if he had slid in along the ground (like Robinson in 03), rather than going for that slam-dunk action, he could have eliminated any doubt. (Easy for me to say from the comfort of my armchair of course).
