Dave Rennie could be sanctioned for his criticism of the referees. The coach of the Wallabies pointed out the poor performance of Marius jonker, TMO assistant, who was the one who concluded the correct expulsion to Rob valentini on the Australians’ visit to Wales.
Dave Rennie, as it happened with Rassie Erasmus, could suffer severe punishment from World Rugby. The highest rugby body would be deliberating what will be the fate of the coach, who also recalled that a controversial decision against Scotland annulled a victory for the Wallabies against Scotland. In this other controversy, even World Rugby gave the Australians the right. However, Jonker continued to coach and took over the game against Wales.
These latest events put the referee in the eye of the storm, who did not offer any kind of explanation or defense against these accusations. “Everyone is responsible. Or they should be. Clearly we are and we want to make sure that the referees are also held accountable for their mistakes. Marius’s decision last week defined a match,” said the Wallabies coach.
The claim, which in this case has a first and last name, represents an initiative that Rennie himself raised at the end of his statement. The Wallabies head coach simply asked “Does anyone take responsibility for the mistakes that these guys make and that often define the game?“: In addition, the coach stated thate “It is useless if they come to us to apologize in the middle of the week. We have the TMO, there is no reason to be wrong”, he sentenced. For the moment, Rennie’s claim will remain like Erasmus’s, with a punishment for those who questioned the decisions of the World Rugby.
