What are the same stats for the previous years?

He is still relatively inexperienced, but I have seen worse refereeing than what he dished out today. In general he was good with nothing severely controversial.

Thought he was very lenient on the Boks’ offside line.

NZ have so many other good midfielders, no need to risk him until next year Japan.

Crottys concussion isn't a concern for the All Blacks it's a concern for Crotty

Why does this stuff not happen to Kolisi.. . Ohhh wait..... He actually has to play to get knocked out.... Right ..

To say WW was "poor" is just not true. Not brilliant, but steady. When Dyantyi scored his try, look who was in close support. When that ball squirting out incident occurred who was there in support of Kolisi? WW - and no one behind him! And he defended pretty well. He usually does.
Re JLDP, I agree that right now he is out of form. I think you tend to exaggerate 'a trifle' when saying that some regard Kolisi "the worst player in the world". They are just not entirely convinced of his value. To be candid I once considered it an improvement when JLdP replaced Kolisi, but right now I wouldn't.
I don't understand how you could in the least blame Van Staden for the give-away try to Argentina. Willemsa was entirely responsible through a terrible pass.

Thanks for the spot - fixed now

Marx had the highest line out completion rate of all the South African hookers and one of the highest in superrugby. He is still learning but that doesn’t excuse what happened on Saturday. Lousy lineout calling. Not sure what they were thinking
