Fair point but all they have to do with this one is identify if the ball has been kicked, where its been kicked from, and where it went.

Agreed, but the point I’m trying to make is that one of two or three major blights of the modern game is when this offside line is not refereed.

and you'd imagine that the rush defense will try to get even more aggressive to protect the space outside.

Is Gatland's fondness for media/profile in NH being used to push NZ rugby interests with these statements I wonder?

He must be looking to get into the frame for AB coach.

gats never puts anything out there without a reason, he wants the AB job at some stage I'm sure of that

Oh I completely agree.
