What did you make of the red card? I keep changing my mind on it depending on the angle of the replay.

Perpignan are absolutely terrible, can't even resource rucks properly off first phase. Jackson showing some good touches when the game opens up a bit and the gameplan goes out the window.

Thought it was harsh. Parisse just looked to be bracing himself.
Look out Itchy, he's Irish

Thought that too from most angles but the one from behind looked dodgy. The ref seemed to have his mind made up before he even looked at a replay.

I suspect some refs may not have given a penalty against Parisse, nevermind a red card.

As bad as Perpignan were, Macalou really was superb.

It was quite sad seeing the state of Sky's coverage for that game. Harrison and Barnes commentating but no studio panel or interviews, just a quick sign off straight after the game had finished.

I thought it was quite Dylan Hartley-esque myself.
