    Match could be replayed after ref error


    1 Not allowed!
    Bath are requesting that their match with Toulouse be replayed, mainly because the ref didn't send off two Toulouse players (who have subsequently been banned after their offences were seen by a disciplinary panel). I'm sure Bath were hard done by but these are murky waters. I sincerely hope that the appeal is turned down because it will set an awful precedent, will we ever be sure that a match is over?

    And, if it starts to happen in rugby, sooner or later, a football team will want to have a game replayed too. Refs make mistakes, in football and in rugby. Hell, we all make mistakes, aliquando bonus dormitat Homerus .

    I'm pretty sure that Bath's request won't succeed but what an uncertain future if it does.

      Maybe the mega-rich sultans of soccer should lend their VAR equipment to those poor struggling rugger buggers when not needed for football?






      Or maybe everyone should just get on with it. Referees decisions, good or bad.

      Bath have no one to blame but themselves. They could have, and should have, won the game anyway - Freddy Burns' howler put paid to that. That'll teach him to celebrate before putting the ball down - or not, as was the case.

      I remember as a 9 year old in 86 playing football.in the park and one of the cool kids came running on with his mitre delta cosmic declaring that the ref for England Argentina had been sacked and we were replaying Argentina but Maradonna was banned

      What a ****.

      Video replays have been in rugby for years - football has just caught up.

      And that's what concerns me: if it does become prevalent in rugby, I'm sure football will follow. I totally agree that ref''s decision should be final but officials, in all sports, are under fire - it's a worrying trend.

      But, yes, Bath should have won anyway if Freddie Burns hadn't been such a prat.

      Fairy nuff. My ignorance indicates my complete lack of interest in rugby!
