• Romain Poite’s controversial decision

    The French referee controversially changed a late penalty to the All Blacks to a scrum.

    The law that governs 'offside after a knock on' states: 'When a player knocks on and an offside teammate next plays the ball, the offside player is liable to sanction if playing the ball prevented an opponent from gaining an advantage.'

    The sanction is a penalty.
