Jim I absolutely agree with your statement inregards to the responsibility of a team. I am part of that 6nations bench staff. I also remember what its like as a young player giving out crap and taking it as well. It is still the responsibility of the refs to get on top of the game when they see the crap side of the game taking hold.Again I have tried not to accuse 1 team or another for what went on,but I know both benches were pleading with the refs to take chrg of the game. I repeat,they did not do this right from the start on a very easy simple call,and it was an indication of their lack of experience. I tried to qualify by saying it may not of been their fault and maybe they were doing a game they should not of been doin. As for replying with all the sarcassim Jim,your choice. I didnt think the overall point I was making fit into that catagory. These situations do not only happen to 15-16yr olds, this goes on in Jr,Sr,and the pros and at all those levels I and assume you have been involved in games where they take chrg, it ends, they dont and all hell breaks loose regardless of what both benches do. Tsitshoh, I appreciate your reply and never have a problem with a different view.
