Well Canterbury of course.
Had Telusa Veainu regathered the "KNOCK UP" and dotted down under the posts, would Jackson have disallowed it, still penalised Telusa and given a yellow card, I think not, the commentators and the officials would have rightly said, wonderful hands and moved on.
For my money it was an instinctive attempt at an intercept, albeit at very close range and stop whining Pivac it was nothing close to a penalty try!!
Did Tom McCartney deliberately target Fruen's head with his elbow when he joined the ruck from the side and leave the Canterbury "Mack Truck" needing time in the blood bin.
Did the Auckland pack continually flop over in the collision to deny The Red and Blacks any chance of contesting the ball.
With McCaw in Asia for Fonterra, Danny C. doing domestics, Sam Whitelock, Luke Romano, Kieran Read and Owen Franks, all resting and with an almost full team sitting in the stands with injuries, who the fuck was in control of the "cheating".
Maybe Tabai, Scott and Arron did the biz in the leadup and maybe George Whitelock with five winners medals and the rest of the bunch giving their guts and proving on the night they were "Simply The Best".
Great effort Daniel Braid and your talented team, you clearly came to play but the Rhythm & Blacks were ahead at the end.
