At age 46, the Hab will continue to operate in 14th place.
His first match
He managed Roman Poyet three times as a running mate at the 2009 Six Nations Championship. A year later, he officiated his first international match: Ireland-Italy (29-11), in front of 80,000 spectators at Croke Park in Dublin. He was then 34 years old and the only rookie in the version of this tournament, won by the Blues, and which will collect their ninth in the Grand Slam.
Roman Poyet presided over rugby (the tournament between Australia, New Zealand and South Africa) in 2013, and was removed from the panel a few months after a controversial decision in the match between New Zealand and South Africa (29-15): Springbok disqualified Hawker Bismarck de Plessis after receiving a card yellow again, “The first (treatment on Dan Carter) was not justified”According to his words, the team . Interfering with New Zealand’s opening half was legal, World Rugby later confirmed.
The first yellow color is highly criticized, because for many the punishment is not deserved. The second, received in the 41st minute, against the world champions, completely shocked Box and condemned them to defeat.
“It will remain a stopping point in my career…”Roman Poet admits to the sports daily, his ‘worst memory’ According to him.
Another controversial match: New Zealand’s third test match – Lions during the British-Irish Lions Tour, in 2017. During this match, Roman Poyet stirred controversy by refusing to award a penalty to the All Blacks, following a Lions striker in the last moments of the meeting.
Roman Poyet fires a penalty first before the video is requested. He reconsiders his decision on the grounds that Ken Owens involuntarily took the ball: he gives a scrum and denies the All Blacks a well-placed penalty.
The match ends in a tie (15-15).
Romain Poyet was one of the five French referees selected for the last World Cup finals in Japan in 2019, along with Jerome Garces, Mathieu Raynal, Pascal Guzeer and Alexandre Ruiz. Matthew Renal is the only one still in charge at the international level.
He was a notably tactile referee during the final between South Africa and England (win against Boks 32-12), alongside his compatriot Jerome Garces. ‘Great memory’, as he will say the team.
With three World Cups on the clock (2011, 2015, 2019), the Rochefort native (Charente Maritime) is France’s most experienced referee. He led four group matches in 2011, four group matches in 2015, and three group matches in 2019.
« Mais le meilleur, c’est peut-être un match de club, la finale européenne de 2011 entre le Leinster et Northampton, un match d’anthologie, je me suis assis au volant d’une Ferrari, j’ai juste à démarrer the engine “, still said the team. Encounter with the most notable scenario: Leinster won the match 33-22, having been vastly ahead 22-6 in the first half.
On Sunday, Roman Poyet was able to get a taste of Murrayfield’s atmosphere. The Scots achieved their third success in a row against the Wallabies in a friendly match (15-13), and they confirmed their good dynamic at XV du Chardon: the lesson given to Tonga (60-14), the promises made in the Six Nations Championship – Winner in England at Twickenham for the first time since 1983, And des Bleus, in France, which has not happened since 1999.
At the final whistle, the leader of the Wallabies, Michael Hooper, went to the referees’ locker room to present the didgeridoo, a traditional Indigenous instrument, and a symbol of respect, to Roman Poet. An extension of the field and a final exchange between Roman Poyet and the third grader, which was often ruled by the French, also captivated the player … “It was a great honor to manage, because you are a great player. Management has always been a big challenge for us, because you are an excellent competition player, but you are a fair player. Thank you very much.”
