Missed a fair bit of offside though - Touch Judges still don't help refs enough in this important area of the game.
Some referees don't want (or need) "help" from their AR's. Whether JP needed (or wanted) it would have been covered in hi sbrief to the AR's pre-match.
Also, I'd venture that those guys were probably in a better position to judge whether a player was offside and interfering or not.
I'd also venture that they are in a better position but still appear to ignore the offside line.
A well-respected ex international pundit has also highlighted the fact that ARs need to flag up offside more often as it's stifling attacking rugby.
