have a look at the restart with 2:00 mins to go in the 2nd half. What's that all about?

Ball bounces once on or about touchline. How can that be a lineout to Fiji? Surely its either out on the full or play on. :holysheep:

Cock-up. Should have been a FK to Fiji at the half-way mark.

Surely the ref should have realised. Paddy would not have been happy

Good god howd he and the AR get that wrong. Even the AR should have been pointing to the centre as soon as it went out on the full. The ref has obviously got caught up in the occaision and just went with the AR flag up and arm out.

That's not his and AR only huge error. At 1:20 to go there is a turnover from the ball being ripped out. The problem is that the ripping out by SA was backwards for fiji but forwards for SA. That's gotta be a knock on surely?!!?

The new ripping into the knock on laws def says
"If a player rips the ball or deliberately knocks the ball from an opponent's hands and the ball goes forward from the ball carrier's hands, that is not a knock-on."
