It's not a case of people not understanding, if handballs like that on the line were not given then there would be an awful lot of silliness.
That being said, have seen more blatant ones not given.
Also, I felt Australia responded a lot better to being a man down than last time, especially after the break.
Oz showed heart but I despair about our next campaign
