What a bullshit article...  thre was one possie to be filled by a Kiwi ref & Jackson got it, probably saving Pollock for the final . Don't the refs ask for the linesman's recommendation ?

 Pollock asked to review it on the big screen and made his own bullshit call!

I do not see Pollock involved in the semis or the final either - I believe he is on a cooling off period after his foul ups on Saturday. Jackson will be extra careful about reading of hiself in the media afterwards and laying himself wide open to official complaints - like Pollock ran into in the case of Kirwan. So I do believe he would make the grade for further usage in Super 15 if necessary.

In the event of New Zealand teams being in the semies - highly likely - a New Zealand ref won't be used in any event.

Oumaaik, didn't the linesman tell Pollck that the boot was on the players head ?

May be the case - but I think that the video evidence was to be the deciding factor. Rucking involving the head or neck would inevitable lead to injury to the receiving player and at least a temporary injury time out or a blood injury. Neither was in evidence and I think all the excuses now are aimed at covering a wrong and poor decision by the ultimate authority - in this case Pollock himself.

Let him have his cooling off period - maybe he would better in future.

 Best all nz refs have a cooling off period - forever.

Hakwa, Burger is a clean player and has a great reputation as a sportsman.

Great eye gouching technique there from Burger. Just that the cover left him for dead there. But like we say

You should be at least happy JACKASSON the incompetent CHEAT is reffing against Brumbies it will help the Cheetahs - JACKASSON is possibly the biggest cheat of the lot - Bryce included... hes just weaselling his way in there now like Bryce did for years prior to him being unleashed on the Aussies (3xs) in rigged 2011 RWC....

Be warned JACKASSON is definitely Bryce's heir apparent....
