Biggest referee bottle crash ever in the final of the 7s Challenge Cup. Straight punch to the face, ref tells touch judge red card then pulls out a yellow at the last minute.
It was an open palm pissy slap, fine.
Worse was the time keeping of the yellow.
Lost because of stupid penalties and shite restarts.
Not a great punch, but it was still a strike to the face. Red just about every day. What was bizarre was the way he said red and then pulled yellow.
The AR muttered something indiscernible, might have been that. Maybe the TMO gave some input and they didn't have the channel feeding through then.
Our tacklers' incessant rolling into the 9 despite being repeatedly pinged for it, was far more puzzling over the weekend for me!
Tough pool for Paris, England, NZ + 16th. Presume that will be Ireland.
Ed: Looks like it's London first up actually
