Wales concede controversial try as Springboks dominate first half in Cardiff

Reigning World Champions South Africa have looked every bit like their title in Cardiff this afternoon.

Dominating the first half, the Boks currently lead Wales 24 – 9 in a scoreline that flatters the home side as Bok flyhalf Manie Libbok has struggled from the kicking tee thus far.

Conceding four tries, two of which have come in the final ten minutes of the half, Wales look a class below their visitors.

One area of contention that is doing the rounds already on social media is the yellow card handed to Welsh winger Rio Dyer.

Whilst the card itself appears to be widely accepted, the concession of a penalty try has caused quite a debate amongst rugby fans.

Dyer was sent from the field for slapping the ball out of the in-goal area and thus stopping Bok winger Canan Moodie from bagging his second try of the half.

Yet, depending on the angle and your fan leanings, there is debate around whether Moodie actually touched the ball before Dyer got to it.

If so, it would appear to have been either a knock-on or a lack of control from Moodie and as such, not a penalty try.

Here is the incident, let us know your thoughts in the comments.
