    Munster vs Southern Kings 14 February 2020. - Yellow card

    I believe it is Georgian referee Nika Amashukeli’s first season in the Pro 14. Friday night lights in Cork city, with a handy sized crowd of home supporters. Having emptied their sub bench 7 minutes earlier, Red are penalised at the scrum. The players retreat, only for handbags to break out...

    [Line out] Saracens vs Munster European Rugby Champions Cup

    Sideline scuffle, as hooker loses his calm with opposition medic. To be honest, I am far more interested in what we think about the French referee’s use of the whistle and decision to penalize Black 10 for getting involved. In some respects it was all a thing of nothing. Further details...
