Referee Romain Poite has been involved in his fair share of funny incidents over the years (most of which are archived here on RD, and can be viewed in the related posts below). This one is a first though, coming to us from the Top 14 game between Mont de Marsan and Bordeaux Begles.

At kick-off Poite made sure that both sides were ready, everyone was behind the kicker, and then blew his whistle to start the game..

    Um... good point, I'd say no because it was not "open play" (which is normally when we see referee's awarding scrums to team in possession)... but that is purely my "opinion"/basic understanding...

    hahaha mr poite seems like a funny guy. Took it in stride and didn't get too embarrassed about it. We've all seen a ref get in the way, it happens. Not a big deal
