The theme of the 2024 Six Nations Championship is becoming clear: five teams struggling for rhythm and a dominant Ireland showing the rest how it should be done. The overall quality of the games has been modest, with slim margins being the lasting memory rather than exceptional play. Rugby union is facing a dilemma as it has become too focused on pedantic decision-making. Referees are getting caught up in complicated protocols and excessive use of technology, ultimately detracting from the sport's appeal. The game needs to reassess the impact of technology and find a balance between conclusive evidence and common sense. The current approach leads to doubt, frustration, and accusations of inconsistency. The Six Nations risks being diminished if these issues are not addressed.
