Imagine if NZ get stripped of the win, the suicide rate in the south island would go through the roof! Give them something to do for once i suppose *trollface*

Well that's extremely poor from the referees, definitely looks like it goes wide from that video. Of course there's no saying that they may have gone on to win the game anyway as they would have had to play with a different mentality if behind, but still, it certainly throws the whole result into disrespute. I would not be happy if I was French!

It's definitely wide.

Shocked they got that wrong-it's far worse than the Hook decision versus South Africa which in fairness, you couldn't be 100% sure about even with the replays

Could it be a manipulated video?

I agree with you there.

Nah it went through. There was thousands of people there, around half the country watched it, someone would of said something before now. It's just some French idiot trying to get back at us.
FAKE RUMOURS!


It looked like it went through anyway, don't know what the fuss is about :?

Well, it looked wide watching live but assumed was an illusion as the two touch flags went up straight away. Looking at it now, well... :fp:

Not sure who had the worse tournament, England or the refs?

Having the ball the same colour as the posts is kind of stupid really.

Something Fishy

That's awful if true. Nothing France can do about it but puts a shadow on NZ's win,

And having the ball the shape of an egg is OK? ;)

I think from that video it looks like it curved and went through.

Either way, it was awarded and so it counts. Nothing more to it.

Whilst that is true in the context of the match maybe this and the Hook penalty that wasn't given will prompt a revision in the way that penalty kicks are monitored.

I don't know the answer but one thing is for sure, as rugby develops the way refs are scrutinised in going to be more and more like football. It is quite sad for the game to think that a RWC has been decided incorrectly.

Guys this isn't anything. Whoever made that video is stupid. It clearly went through. It is just from a stupid site, its got no other media coverage what so ever.

And if it didn't go through, it would of been spotted.

The players accepted it went over, you saw in the Wales match the players questioned it openly.

Yeah but if Wales had beaten SA, Wales would then have lost to Samoa as they would not have been under as much pressure to win.

...maybe ;)

Wonder if the RFU will chase him? Not the way forward IMO but who knows what they are currently thinking??
