The decision to award the try was debated on social media, with former Test referee Nigel Owens opining that deliberately heading the ball is against the spirit of the game.
Gareth I’m just explaining the decision, makes no difference to me. Although am sure none of us would like to see players just jump up and head a rugby ball in every match would we. Heading the ball wilfully in rugby is not allowed. Take off those tinted glasses 😂
