appalling refereeing. Penalties both questionable

agree with general refereeing - he let a lot go, but he got the pens pretty spot on

1st one - clear contact

2nd one (not great photo) - but Rory McKeown was effectively sandwiched by two Tasman players

I’m not sure you can call a penalty from a photo!

First pen was stonewall, second looked less clear cut. Seemed like lucky dip most calls the ref made. Was a decent game otherwise, Tasman offered a bit when they could get the ball but TW dominant as a whole, think the score was a pretty fair reflection of the game. Tasman shot themselves in the foot taking too long to come out of the sheds but I also think we see a very different game if 3 of Tasman's back 4 weren't suspended, especially since 2 of the goals were Tasman mistakes more than anything else.

Watched the TW-Canterbury game on Sky. Not sure artificial pitches should be used at this level. The ball seemed to be bouncing all over the place and the ball was just a black blob from the turf. The commentators were dreadful and soo biased.

Dreadful game to have on TV

I was at the game.

Team Welly looked decidedly average against a Dragons team that had just let all their foreign imports go.

I think the league is Auckland City's to lose....

The balls are white, just get discoloured by the turf. Need to have ball cleaners as well as ball kids on the sidelines.

yeah well the turf must be even weirder than I thought if the balls go black after five minutes

I would hate to play on artificial pitch but I guess quite a lot of city players must have to do so these days.

Good grass > Turf > Shark grass/mud/dirt/puddles.

Turf is much better than playing on the grass that gets served up to everyone except the top few local teams. Not sure its necessarily the right thing for the Handy - what other options exist in Chch?

Waitak play on the artificial at Seddon Fields this year, are there similar complaints about that? (Are Easts playing on Bill McKinley this year?)

Seddon Fields look just as horrendous. ES have been playing at Maddils Farm (sp?) which basically resembles a cow paddock.

Surely there is some regulation/ expectation that the fields for this level should be of a certain standard!. Watched the Waitak- Hamilton game a few weeks ago. Another dreadful turf.You could see the rubber bouncing up from players feet as they ran and whenever the ball hit the deck. Ball was black as well.  Not a great advertisement for top level football in New Zealand.

More likely to be a horse paddock in Remmers/Kohi.

You'd be surprised. Only a few weeks back I watched AS Roma v Juventus. A classic of Italian football and a crucial game to help decide the league winner and possible UCL placements.

Well, they'd played rugby at the Olimpico a day before and the pitch was in a terrible state. 

End of story, two players blew their knee in that game, including Nicolo Zaniolo, one of the most exciting Italian prospects who is now likely to miss the Euros - or only play a small part.
