Watch an amazing try-saving tackle from the Blues' Siale Piutau ruled as a knock back and the Lions awarded a try.

And yet, Craig Joubert gets flown over?

It is insane that we even have to worry about the neutrality of referees. It should be their job to be neutral. Besides, an aussie ref could well want one SA team to beat another in order to benefit a team in Aus.

I say it again. Referees should be publicly rated and decisions explained to the public.
