Former England No 8 Nick Easter took it one step further on social media, calling on the Rugby World Cup to scrap the review system altogether. “Sack the bunker review off. They can’t get it right, complete incompetence and lack of understanding for the game.
“2 pre requisites for being in the job I would have thought.” Australia head coach Eddie Jones took umbrage with the use of the bunker review earlier this week, calling on huge changes to be made.
He said: “I think our use of the TMO in rugby is fraught with danger; that we’re asking a referee in the grandstand to make decisions on a different angle on the game, through video. And it’s not making the game a better spectacle, it’s not making it a better game for the players, and I think we’re just lucky because international rugby is so popular.
“But I think we really need to improve the game and at the end of this World Cup there’ll be an opportunity to do that.”
