I still don't understand why Sarries got the penalty simply because Care apparently started it. Retaliation normally sees the penalty reversed.

I think there may be a citing or two after this game. Just a feeling, before anyone gets antsy and demands chapter and verse.

It was a poor bit of reasoning. Liam Williams got shoved out of the ruck area, then illegally took out Care, before jamming the arm in his throat.

Thought Sarries were very unlucky with the Vunipola try being chalked off, but then JP gave them about 3 hours to release 2 phases earlier when Dombrandt was all over the ball. There were several really dumb penalties we gave away, and some baffling decisions by JP - can anyone explain the penatly against Earle for not rolling away when 1) someone had immediately dived on top of him and 2) the ball was BEHIND him on the Saracens side anyway?!

I'd be angrier if our own ill discipline wasn't such a problem. Gosh we gave away some stupid penalties. And the subs largely did themselves no favours. Alofa is no Marchant, Boyce is certainly no Marler, and Ward is no rugby player.
