I thought the refereeing as a whole was quite good, but there were a few key moments where decisions weren't necessarily wrong, but were in that grey area where he was maybe a bit harsh on Scotland and a bit lenient to Aus.

The sin-binning seemed unlucky to me, without the TMO it wouldn't be given.  His hand is facing upwards, not downwards and his arm motion at the point of contact with the ball is towards himself.  I think that makes it seem more like he was going for the intercept rather than swatting the ball away.

The penalty at the end was accidental offside IMO, Aus would still probably have gotten a position for a drop goal from the scrum, so may have won anyway.  The ball was dropping, then the ricochets between Strauss and the Aussie meant that it shot into the other Scotland player's hands before he could react.

Over the course of the match you could see that Australia were the better side, but it is absolutely gutting to lose so close to the end like that.

Meh such is life, no point having a go at the ref, fluff up your own line out at this level you going to suffer one way or another. Foley finally found his kicking foot, was lack of it kept us in it. Top effort from the players gave their all which is all you can ask.

Yeah, agree with the line out but at that level at that time in a match which, let's face it, will be the last time some of our players don the dark blue, and NOT to go TMO, shocking.

The noble knight McGeechan was spot on - would the kiwis been punished by pen and not scrum...?
