Top rugby referee Nigel Owens, who took charge of the 2015 World Cup final between the All Blacks and Wallabies, took to social media to say that referee Mathieu Raynal made the 'correct call' when he gave a scrum against the Wallabies due to first-five Bernard Foley wasting time with less than two minutes on the clock.
The All Blacks went on to score a match-winning try from the resulting scrum.
Owens says that “as so many of you have been in touch to ask. There was clear communication and warning to the player to get on with it. A fair and strong refereeing call by Raynal I feel. Learning here is not for the referee, but the players to get on with it when the ref asks".
The All Blacks will take on the Wallabies at 7.05pm Saturday while the Springboks will face the Pumas at 3.05am.
