The ref was on the payroll

Watch an amazing try-saving tackle from the Blues' Siale Piutau ruled as a knock back and the Lions awarded a try.

t looked like the ref was on the Sharks payroll, I mean when Jannie du Plessis told the ref "dont lecture me" that's not the way you would talk to a neutral ref. If the ref was from Oz, It woul have been a penaly for talking back at the ref. It spretty obvious that vd Merwe was favoring the sharks.

This will upset the reds and they will mkst likely take it out on the Lion sthis weekend, I hope my boys in red will take the win at ellis park after that great performance against the blues
