Rugby fan invades pitch to have a chat with the referee

This fan at the Racing Metro vs Agen Top 14 match decided that he'd take it upon himself to have a chat with the referee about some of his decisions. As you do.

Stadium security seemed a bit slow to react so before things got out of hand, the - possibly inebriated - fan was removed from the field by some of the players.

Luckily it ended without incident, unlike when a Springbok attacked the ref in 2002.

Even when he walked off the pitch security didn't do anything with him, he just carried on and the last time I saw him he was heading towards the tunnel area ...

"Luckily it ended without incident, unlike when a Springbok attacked the ref in 2002."
It was not a Springbok that invaded the pitch, but rather a spectator. Who can blame him after Dave McHugh made some calls that even Bryce & Poite would consider dodge...
This is not a SA friendly site.
