In the lead up to the Higginbotham yellow,

Referee asks for AR's view of the fracas. AR says that he didn't see anything that started it, but he saw 6 Blue retaliate. Referee then asks the AR if he should refer to the TMO, or is he [The AR] happy?

Seems like terrible mgmt from the AR and the Referee. If you're willing to award a card for what looks like retaliation, and you admit that you did not what may have started it, AND you have a TMO at your disposal, how could you NOT use the TMO?

Does the Super Rugby's expanded scope TMO scope in this season allow for this?

This video shows the Referee / AR discussion (starts at 1:28)
