While it is bollocks to do a raw tally of 'not born in X country' lists, it is equally as bollocks to cherrypick the least objectional examples and pretend that's representative of the more absurd ones.

Hmmm I don't see how the ref saw a grounding there, at last not before he blew his whistle and therefore stopped play.

How in gods name did the ref apparently see grounding on that one? Was it just a "well, surely they got down" or did I seriously miss something on the various TMO replays?

He "saw it on the ground" 5-10 seconds after he blew the whistle.

That wasn't so much a tackle as it was a shoulder straight into him.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Farrell had knocked it on and was basically waiting for the whistle after regathering which makes it even more of a dog shot.

Thought that offside penalty on Kepu was harsh. He went early, but realised and turned straight back around not impacting the play at all.

How so very dare Hansen opt to forgo a dead rubber that would mean that the All Blacks would have a reduced turnaround time between tests going into the knockout rounds, not to mention a risk of injury.
