Whoever is running sky's coverage of games is not looking at the clock! e.g. a few examples
1 7.45pm kick offs seem to kick off at 7.48 or 7.49!
2 How many times was the video ref used in last nights televised game the answer 6 times
3 The video ref took over 2 minutes to work out the try or no try = 12 minutes.
4 The game last night kicked off at 7.49 and finished at 9.42!
5 Why does every club seem to appear on the pitch with numerous children and then take 2 minutes to take photos of the children with the players?
6 Catalans get a video ref at EVERY home game
7 Where as the crane camera gone where decisions to see if a player is on or off side!

It is really funny how football is now using video technology in SOME games and even they are getting decisions WRONG! e.g. was it a penalty or not. and mistaken identity! red card or yellow card :READING:

Not sure what your point is exactly?

TV games have always had slightly unpredictable kick off times, they also have a longer half time break. And for as long as we have the video ref some decisions will take more time than others. Not really too much of a price to pay for the money put in by the game's biggest sponsors.

And Catalan have an all-game TV deal so, yes, all games have the video ref. Not exactly contentious.

Should be video ref at all matches or none at all. Some of the decisions seem to take an absolute age to get to when it's bleeding obvious. And wish they'd stop trying to use as many TV angles as they can for every tackle. Just use 2

The constant replying of the Johnstone try yesterday was a puzzler. First view verified he wasn't in touch, but we had three other after for what ever reason.
