To be fair Matt, finals are often like that- due to the tension and need to win.
In that particular case, the 2 semi finals were offerings of real excitement and no mean skill.

My issue is that so much of international and club rugby is less attractive to watch than it might be.

Policing of offside would do a lot to help, as would Opti's point about refs just pinging offences instead of colluding with them by constantly telling players how they are doing. I also believe that World Rugby needs to find a way in managing/changing the laws to restore the space the game has lost.
