..I'd see a match where a yellow card was awarded after the 80 mins was up and the game go on so long that the player could come back !

Unless I imagined it of course

Did he come back on with the scrum still being played in the same place he was sent off? Or had the ball moved at all in that 10 minutes?!

Am I the ONLY person here who, after a few minutes in, thought, 'This is going to be better watching this than I thought?'

Jonathan Davies lost his voice!!!! Better late than never.

I appreciate that when 80 mins have elapsed, it's usually not necessary to stop the clock but surely in this case it was. There was so much 'dead' time with no action (props going off and on, biting allegations etc) that the yellow card elapsed. If that had been in normal time, the clock would have been stopped and the Welsh prop would have had to serve 10 mins of game time, not inactivity. Consequently, he wouldn't have been allowed back on.

I thought exactly the same thing.

And me. Do the rules state that the clock doesn't stop after 80 mins are up?

Think in an 80 min game, ball is in play on average 40 to 45 mins - 30 to 35 at lower levels. So 20 mins continuous time equates to about 10 in actual normal in play time, which don't sound so extreme.
