Scarlets line out from another stupid Leavy penalty right in front of the ref, can see us conceding a stupid kickable penalty here and them getting back to a 9 point lead.

Mitrea giving another wrong scrum penalty. Either utterly unsuited for the job or on the take.

Unbelievable refereeing decision penalising the dominant scrum there. As so often happens, he's spent the whole game compensating for the (correct) red card decision by favouring the Scarles.

He only gave that because he had no other choice. Utterly biased.

An All Ireland Pro12 is not good for the competition.
An All Red Pro12 would be perfect for the Pro12 - wouldn't it?

He's way too quick with giving holding on penalties. I hate referees with a fetish for that penalty. Ruins the attacking flow and continuity of the game, incentivises booting the ball away.

In a phase of play where he could have penalised a Scarlets player for tripping the 9, or a Scarlets player from sealing off the ball, Mitrea chooses to ignore these to penalise Leinster.

Yet again this season a biased referee is deciding the outcome not only of a match, but a tournament.

Not one dink over the top to keep them honest all game, no attempts to poach, everyone just waiting in the backline expecting the ball.

Very poor performance and a worrying continuum of mediocrity from the Ulster and to a lesser extent Clermont games. Wasted the home final opportunity. Scarlets attacked very well in the first half but I honestly don't believe they were particularly good or heroic defensively in the second half, and that's not being churlish, we were just so poor.

Ref wasn't knocking on, or sloppy at breakdown, or be basically abject all game.

Blaming this on the ref is nothing sort of comical. May I remind you that the Scarlets had a player sent of. The team didn't play well and the Scarlets took their chances that's it.

Awful, awful performance. Hats off to the Scarlets, very gutsy with 14 men, but they should have been given no chance

Totally wrong tactics all game long. Missing too many leaders

Absolutely awful. We're nowhere near good enough.
Sexton, Isa our supposed leaders ? Tell me ROL and Byrne wouldn't have been better?
JGP is a sham of a player.
Most incredibly though, our tactics. In a game that we had a major advantage in the pack, we choose to allow them into the game by playing everything?

FFS lads, what a waste of a season's work.

It's hilarious. Flip's posts in this thread have been nothing short of comical.
To put any blame on the ref for this is pure abdication.
