Nick Mallett slams referee Romain Poite after All Blacks vs Springboks Test

Former Italy and Springbok coach Nick Mallett shares his thoughts on Romain Poite's decision to yellow card Bismarck Du Plessis for the tackle on Dan Carter. Mallett argues that Poite had technology, as well as his touch judges, at his disposal so should have made use of them.

"This was an absolute disgrace. A match of this quality deserved to have fifteen players on the field for the whole game," said Mallett in the Supersport studio chat post match.

"The referee had every opportunity to look at that [the tackle]. He ruined the game as a spectacle because of that first yellow card that wasn't. It's a disgrace, and it needs to be said," he added.
