More Tests please Give power to refs
ReToomanyTests: I enjoyed the article (November issue) but I disagree. Rugby is a spectator sport and there is no greater spectacle or gladiatorial contest than Test rugby. We want to see these games! We don’t get that many as it is.
Player welfare is important but they are paid; they are not shrinking violets and do not have to play every game. More Tests means longer game time for more players. This results in better TMOs are having too much say in the game. Let the referee make the call as he/she sees it on the field and only let the TMO look at something if the referee asks them to. If the referee makes a mistake, well, they’re human.
When you slow footage down, things can look so different (just look at a catch in cricket). General
