International Rugby Board
United Kingdom

The International Rugby Board needs to investigate refereeing over the last two world cups, specifically the 2011 Quarter Final between South Africa and Australia along with the Final between New Zealand and France, and the 2015 quarter final between Scotland and Australia.

In all three cases the performance of the referee has played an overwhelming part in the outcome of the game. In two cases the same referee has been involved and in the other the referee in question quit his post after.

The fact that the same team (Australia) has benefited twice in two world cups at the same stage by a questionable officiating performance needs to be investigated.

I hereby request the International Rugby Board conduct an investigation into the refereeing of three games in the last two world cups, namely the 2011 Quarter Final between South Africa and Australia and the Final between France and New Zealand, and the 2015 Quarter Final between Scotland and Australia.
