PdV unhappy getting yet another Irish referee

Springbok coach Peter de Villiers blasted northern hemisphere referees for not officiating the Tri-Nations Test matches as well as the Super 14 referees did this year.

Rugby 365 reports that South Africa will have a third consecutive Irish referee, George Clancy, in their 2010 Tri-Nations campaign and De Villiers is worried about the refereeing interpretations being consistent in both the northern and southern hemispheres.

“We are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea,” De Villiers told the media on Tuesday.

“The Super 14 law focus is supposed to be the way the [2011] World Cup will be blown, but this does not appear to have got through to their [northern hemisphere] referees,” he said.

“Let me give you some Super 14 facts. The most penalised team in this year’s competition was the Crusaders with 96, and many of their penalties were for slowing the ball down.

“At the weekend, five of their [the All Blacks] ten penalties were for Richie McCaw slowing the ball down.

“The Hurricanes conceded the second-most penalties and as a result never got their game going.

“The implication is that the New Zealand teams did not embrace the new law focus as our teams did.

“We have done our utmost to comply with the new interpretations so that the game is a spectacle, which is the whole point of the new emphasis.”

De Villiers also believes that the loss of Danie Rossouw early in the second Test against the All Blacks – when he was yellow carded, after an ‘altercation’ with Richie McCaw – left his side on the back foot and with too much to do to get back into the match.

“In the first half we were unable to get our game going because of the loss of Danie Rossouw, and we saw later [when Rossouw returned from the sin bin] how important Danie is to the team with the go-forward he gives us.

“We played so well but still lost because at this level, where there is not much between the teams, it is the little things in a game that cost you and end up being points for the opposition.”

The world champions, who are also defending Tri-Nations champions have not given up hope of retaining their title, with four Test matches still to play in the competition.

“We are still the Tri-Nations champions and we are not going to give away our crown for free. We are a proud team and we will fight all the way,” De Villiers said.

  • “this is a team warning”

    “this is now an official warning”

    allain rolland, is richie mcCaw not part of the new zealand team? If you warn the team for an infringement and the captain does the same thing 20mins later doesn’t that mean the “team” in black is infringing?

    How incompetent!

  • Just a question here..

    How does the falling away of the warning work? I know that if your team does not infringe for a certain time, then the final warning does lapse and a new final warning can be given.

    Does anybody know about this?

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 2) : really? Didn’t know about that…just for interest sake, how many warnings did Bakkies get at Eden Park for slowing the ball?

  • @Megatron (Comment 3) : I actually am not sure how true it is, thats why Im asking?

    And I agree with you, Bakkies was not warned at all, I think the ref saw the replays on the big screen of the head butt, and found a reason to show him a belated yellow.. just for some form of revenge.. if that makes sense.

    I think Bakkies got done for a professional foul on his line….or was it two in a row ?

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 10) : what professional foul, slowing the ball down? I thought that was the same thing mcCaw was being WARNED for 5 times! Are you saying what Richie was doing is not considered a professional foul?

    I think that is what the Ref said ….i think he did it twice in a row the same player on his own line…. It was about the 5 th minute and McCaw hadn’t been penalised yet.

    ……Plus the entire world including the Ref realised Botha shouldn’t be on the field at all.

    Surely you of all people have watched McCaw enough over the last 10 Years to realise that he is still the best in the business….and moaning about him is a well worn path.

    I must admit McCaw has attracted a few knees, and flicks in the eyes and taps from opposing players this season.

    PS Good to see the old M back ! ;-)

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 15) : i think you’re confusing the 2 games…at eden park bakkies put his hand on the ball after a ruck was formed, allan lewis shouted at him to ‘let go’ bakkies didn’t

    prrrrrrr, the whistle went, penalty, yellow card, john smit approaches the ref signalling that this was bakkies’ 1st ruck and team infringement, lewis wasn’t trying to hear it.

    At the cake tin, mcCaw does the same thing 5 times in a match and all he gets are warnings?!

    I’m not interested in beaten paths Highlander! Every Test match is a new game and no preconceived ideas should come into play, fair?

    Sorry i am confusing the two games. :???:

    I’m getting excited at seeing SBW play for Canterbury.

    I wonder how good he will be ….. it will be a laugh if he is totally rubbish….but alas i don’t think that will be the case. :lol:

    Well that is interesting you seemed to have a firm opinion of him.

    We have all watched him in NZ for the best part of 8 Years now….mainly playing League of course in the NRL for the Bulldogs and with the Kiwis.

    He is a very capable footballer.

    As for the Bananhan comparison …. that’s a bit rich.

    ….and there is a lot of cultural significance in his tattoos have a close look….they don’t resemble ones a sailor has.

    The NZ public are going gaga (me included) just because he is a very humble young man who has lived his life in the spot light and has made some mistakes along the way. He is someone who makes Rugby interesting….let’s face it not much else does.

    ….and to be honest he has just turned up says he knows nothing about the game and has asked what position best suits him…. he has been given a few responses from Tana Umaga and off he has gone. No one quite knows if they were good calls or not we are all about to find out !

    What impresses me about him is his physical size and willingness to try and win a RWC place over all his massive money making potential in France.

    ……more than i can say for the best tighthead prop in the world.

    I wish him well and i hope you can take the time to watch him and …..give him a chance to develop …. he is no where there yet but he is going to give it his best shot by all reports.

    This could be a winning S15 Crusaders backline :

    9. Ellis
    10. Carter
    12. Williams
    13. Freaun
    11. Maitland
    14. Guildford
    15. Dagg

    ….or is that the AB backline ! :cool:

    I think this years Under 20 Fly Half and Captain Bleydendall is better than Cruden.

    …Cruden was the U20 Flyhalf and captain last year.

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 29) :
    I rate him.

    PdV is right, and I guess he is hoping that airing the grievance will make it heard, but there is a thin line between that and just plain whingeing.

    We won 2 WCs with worse odds than these.

    And there is little reason to panic: FDP is the world’s best player, and the lynchpin of our backline – his injury has negated our traditional strengths in many ways.

    Add in Bismark, Beast, JPP and even Brussow, and the WC squad is much better.
