I was only joking about Barnes. He is a very decent ref. However I always remember him giving Wales all the 50/50 decisions in tight Ireland vs Wales games . One in particular a few years back when Ireland had an attackimg scrum on the Wales 10 meter line and he blew a penalty to Wales and the game was over . Joe Schmidt said he was still waiting for an answer from WB as to what the penalty was actually for .... However I probably do have tinted glasses on and I do agree is is a good referee .
