Interesting that almost every ruck has the clear out bringing a whinge to the referee

Seems Sarries identified the interpretation Garces allowed and played exactly to it. The only time it failed was when both Koch and itoje did the same thing making it look really bad

I hadn't realised that Garces was also the referee for the Chiefs/Munster game. Munster basically wrecked Chiefs game through their play at breakdown and lineout and I can remember thinking at the time that neither were often legal.

This looks to me like a great example of playing the referees interpretation and had Munster been allowed their usual free-hand there I am sure there would have been no complaints. Really well played Sarries and coaches. I get the feeling that the choice of referee for the final will be very important.

I suspect that was part of it. Garces doesn't particularly like talking to the captain, who never shuts up, let alone Murray and Beirne questioning everything. I thought Murray was risking a yellow at times.

Well, it's Garces again. That could work for or against us, either we're used to what he'll allow and he's used to allowing what we do, or he's reviewed his performance, decided he was too lenient and will over-compensate next time!
