The fitness of international 7s refs is almost unbelievable.

Quite a pout on Karl in that photo.

Thought the referee signals on the screens during the game on Saturday were a decent addition to the matchday coverage

Referees have finesse?

As long as they actually match what "Sir" has signalled! There were a few times where they didn't. Still, I argee with you. It's helpful when you've missed the signal on the field to get clarity on the screens. Definitely a move in the right direction.

And yes, you get the situation where the ref has signalled for something, the board shows something else and the TV commentators just make something up!

I was hoping that Karl would be on our side (being an ex-Quin). So, why was he awarding so many penalties to Glos?

Also one occasion where we missed the kick but they still played our music to celebrate a successful penalty

I particularly enjoyed the 'backchat' hand signal shown on the big screens at HQ v Irish when Mike Brown said something to the ref and conceded 10m! Quite amusing, being Karl.
