Well, it's an interesting point. I thought Pocock was a lot more obvious with his indiscretions than McCaw... But then McCaw has a good 80 more test matches under his belt than Pocock. I also think McCaw's not in great form anyway, so Pocock is probably the better player right now. As long as the refereeing is equal and the glaring infringements are picked up, I'm happy. I don't think the Boks were rewarded with a balanced refereering display yesterday - that bleedin' obvious hand on the Bok ball on the Aussie try line should have given the Saffers the penalty they needed, for example.
That said, I'd rather the Aussies get up than the Boks.
