Referees are the backbone of the sport and without them there is no game.

After having conducted a full review of all available information, World Rugby is concerned that individuals from both teams have commented on the selection and / or performance of match officials.

However, the extensive and straightforward nature of comments made by Rassie Erasmus within a video address, in particular, meets the threshold for being considered a violation of World Rugby Regulation 18 (Misconduct and Code of Conduct) and will now be considered by an independent body and disciplinary panel.

World Rugby has reminded the management of both teams of the importance of this area and their obligations to the values ​​of the sport. To protect the integrity of the sport and its values, World Rugby will also conduct a review of its Code of Conduct related to incidents of this nature with a view to strengthening the scope, rules and penalties.

As with any series, the one starring South Africa and the Lions generates great enthusiasm and interest, even more so at this challenging time for sport and society. It is an opportunity for both teams and their leadership to set a positive example and focus on the show and a wonderful example of rugby and its values ​​at its best.
