Your right, it’s not a good advert for the league, we’ve been a laughing stock for many years.  The quality of officiating has been substandard as a whole (the fans have been saying so for years but the powers at be have just let the substandard performances carry on).
Last weeks incident has also brought the role of the TMO into the public domain.  They are meant to be impartial observers, who's role is assist the referees and bring their attention to any incident that the referee has missed in real time - their role is not to try to influence the referee, especially when it is seen to benefit one team or one nation over another.
We lost out on 3 more league points last week, Ulster gained 3 points and Connacht also benefitted in third place by virtue of the fact that we were not able to increase our lead over them.
The fact that Treadwell has been found guilty of a dangerous offence that warranted a red card and has been subsequently banned for 3 weeks hasn’t benefited the scarlets at all and made a mockery of the role of TMOs.

I can (just about) excuse incompetence but willful bias is not a good look. Mr MacNeice's employers have had to do a quick U-turn.

There’s an awful lot of sweepings under that metaphorical green carpet.Wink
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

I love Ed Kennedy. His passion to win is excellent.

Who partnered Drake at lock? Was it Lousi or Price? They were really good together.

Anyone got an interview with Danny Drake. I know Jac Price is a Quins product, and that DD hails from NZ. But I also seem to remember he is WQ. He was born in London according to wiki, to a Welsh mother?
He’s not Welsh qualified 
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Jac Price

I thought so, but the article I read said he was on the bench and Lousi starting. Cheers.

Not only is there no citing forthcoming, the Pro14 have picked Kieran Treadwell in their Team of the Week! 
The league is so Irish-centric I don't think they're aware they're being insensitive. 3 Ulster forwards in the team of the week, no sign of Jac Morgan or Kalamafoni.

Yes, I totally agree. If we're looking for an example of what we want from a player, he's the guy. 

Him & Cassiem over the last 2 seasons show what we need from our NWQ players.

Add the following to that list, Werner, and initially J Mc and Hadleigh.

Very much so. Werner has been very good for us, as have the other 2.
