Ugly stamp angers neutrals in France vs New Zealand U20s match

Ugly stamp angers neutrals in France vs New Zealand U20s match

Jay Renton can find himself extremely lucky to have only conceded a penalty after this stamp during New Zealand U20’s loss to their French counterparts.

The replacement scrum half was seen viciously stamping on a French player rolling away, but the TMO and referee only deemed it a penalty after consultation.

While the stamp appears to be on the arm and not on the head, we have seen red cards given in similar situations and the lack of a yellow card is definitely questionable.

It is just another chapter in New Zealand’s recent controversy over red card leniancy and fans on social media were not happy.

France went on to win the match 16-7 thanks to a try from Romain Ntmack and three penalties from Louis Carbonel.
