Joubert will affect derby

Joubert allows the attacking team to keep the ball more than what is fair, or allowed. Crusaders vs. Stormers there was evidence of this: several times in second half he told the Crusdaers to use it now, and did not blow them when they did not. He seems to think the attacking team has ALL the rights. Attacking team apartheid if you were.

This affects the Stormers in particular,  who rely on solid defence with the understanding they will hold and eventually win the ball. But when Joubert blows the game, the defending team suffers more. I would GUESS Stormers have a losing record under Joubert, and the Kiwi teams usually win when he blows.

Same in the world cup, ask France how they could possibly get the ball? You cannot.

Thus the home field is surrendered, because of Joubert. Sharks maybe slight favourites now.
