    Don’t forget the Samsung Lee return, the Biggar binning, Wayne questioning the French doctor…

    There was much more going on!

    Has anyone ever been sin-binned with the clock red, served his time, and come back?

    Why did the clock continue to run while Wayne was questioning the removal of the fat French replacement prop?
