Agree with everything you just wrote. That ref was so far out of his league and it was very obvious all night.
Also, I have asked this many times and nobody has taken the time to answer. What harm is there in allowing the action to continue and allow that sequence to play out? If Evans actually did have a takedown, the replay would have showed it. Instead, the ref stopped the action which does not even allow for the correct call to be made. If Evans did not have a takedown, they then would have gone back to their feet instead of Storley securing the takedown. Failure on so many levels.
