Off the ball incidents

When are we gonna see the Tv tef intervene for Australazian players illegally holding back SA players? Isn't that a cynical-professional-foul worthy of a yellow card? This guy Jordan Taufua just wouldn't let go of Deysel. It seemed like what he did was about the onely way he could get this guy to release him! And I wasn't really looking but I spotted at least another incident where one off our players were held back just before our first try. Luckily there negative way of playing and the one sided way of punishmet for once did not cost us the game. Our guys definitely should not fall for the deliberate illegal unpunished provocative play. I saw another insistent held back the previous week on Bismark from the Brumbies "star" try scoring lock. Luckily Bismark didn't allow himself to react. My feeling is that players should at least be heard when they report illegal plays like this (held-backs) and have the right to have it looked at again by the tv ref and get justice for it (yellow card the other way) What's that from back east? "It will slow down the game" No it would speed it up as players won't be held back. But I'm sure NZ and AUS supporters players and officials would try anything to stop justice for hold backs as their players are the main instigators of this kind of foul unsportsmanlike tactics to win close games.
