    Iíd agree based on some of the penalties but Taylor should NEVER have been sinbinned, there was no clarity on grounding for Irelandís second try and their third try was as clear a forward pass as youíll see! And how Fraser Brown is expected to move anywhere is a total mystery.

    Some poor decisions from Scotlandís players (especially at the breakdowns) but the ref was appalling.
    I think that the Taylor sin-binning was harsh, but I can see why the referee gave it. I said to myself when I saw the first replay that it looked like he instinctively stuck his hand out to block the ball. So hard to tell though, so I still think it was harsh.

    On the grounding of the ball, the referee gave the try so he had clearly seen the grounding. If the on-field decision is a try then the TMO has to see clear evidence that it shouldn't be a try to reverse the decision, there was nothing clear so they stuck with the on-field decision.

    If the referee had said that he couldn't see if it was grounded properly and asked the TMO to check the grounding, or if he had said "try, yes or no?" then the decision may have been different as the TMO could say there's no clear grounding and not award the try.

    This is the correct way to do things, the referee is still in charge and should take responsibility and make decisions, so they should, wherever possible, make a decision and ask the TMO to check if there's any reason it should be over turned rather than going to the TMO to get a decision made.

    The final pass to Earls certainly was caught in front of where it was passed, but that doesn't necessarily mean it was a forward pass according to how the laws are interpreted at the minute. It is currently interpreted by looking at the hands of the player passing the ball and not the motion of the ball. If the hands pass the ball backwards it is considered a backwards pass, even if the ball travels forwards. If a player is running forward, the ball has forward momentum, so even if it is passed backwards it can still travel forward because of its forward momentum, in order to give the benefit to attacking teams and try to boost try scoring, this forward momentum is allowed if the player passes the ball backwards.

    To me it looked like O'Mahony's hands were passing the ball backwards, so even though the ball travelled forward it is classed as a backwards pass.

    3-8 HT

    La Rochelle by far the better side, but we've defended well to keep it so close. Hardly ventured into their 22!

    Been looking forward to having us back to full strength for weeks, but this really is a challenging first fixture, post-internationals.

    Very tough draw getting South Africa and Ireland need to play out our skin to qualify imo.

    i'm saying right here, right now...we won't qualify :(





    anyways, the Glasgow v Edinburgh fixture on 27th dec has been postponed with at least four covid cases and those still isolating in the glasgow squad, hopefully the return fixture on 2nd january will still go ahead.

    Thought Glasgow ultimately deserver their win - that restart in the second half was phenomenal, to get themselves well clear.

    Some great young players in that Glasgow team too - young Ross Thompson had a great game tonight.

    Really not been a great year from an Edinburgh perspective!
    Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.
