Television Match Official (TMO) is not being used in the Air New Zealand Cup games for this season.

Do you guys think this is a good idea or not??

I'm in two minds about it.

FOR THE TMO: Although the TMO is not always 100% correct, they have a better chance in making tough calls then the Ref does. I'd hate to have my team lose by a couple of points after being disallowed a try, that we the viewer at home can see its a try through watching the replay.

AGAINST THE TMO: Speeds up the games, don't have to muck around waiting to go upstairs and get a decision.

As much as having a TMO helps those tough calls - you see a lot (especially at the 'middle' levels - i.e. Super 14) that the refs start depending on it and not trusting their own judgement. I think if you're going to have a TMO, they should be able to judge on any actions leading up to the try - not just in-goal events. So if obsctruction was noted a few metres out, they could disallow the try because of that. All or nothing I reckon.

even though the video refs in rugby are as bad/used as frequently as the ones in the nrl i still say sack the lot of em haha - let the ref judge the call on what he sees fit (With the help of touchies if necessary)
i can understand that the ref will get a couple of decisions wrong - but thats life, shit happens lol

I say TMO - but they are allowed three or four looks max

If they are still unsure, benefit of the doubt and the Try is awarded

against it. the original sport that had TMO's have done away with it and introduced something better. NFL (gridIron) use the TMO when they want to challenge a referee's decision. They get 3 challenges per game and if they challenge and lose the appeal they lose a timeOut. Rugby should come up with something similar, like maybe a punch in the mouth if u challenge and your wrong...would guarantee that its not over used

2 refs, absolutely NOT. what the fuk are the touchJudges (assistant refs my ass) doing? at least one of them can keep an eye on the offside line at any given time. another ref u gotta be kidding, 2 muppetts destroying the game. can u imagine drawing wayneBarnes and fattGoddard? ouch
