Rugby fans were robbed

Former All Blacks captain Taine Randell says fans have been robbed of the crunch game of the year.

Writing in his column for Fairfax Media, Randell said: 'Romain Poite's officiating ruined last night's Test between the All Blacks and the Springboks, a game between the world's two best sides.

'I am so disappointed with the way a number of controversial decisions, which still don't make any sense to me, dictated the game.

'Bismarck du Plessis's yellow card for a legitimate tackle on Dan Carter was totally unfair, his second yellow which led to red was also marginal and as a fan I've not been able to watch the best of what we've got, against the best of South Africa.

'Last night's game was not decided on equal measure and at this level of the game, that is not acceptable.'
