France and South Africa: “Dirty dog”, “How do you control at this level”, “How many times did you hit”… The referee is violently targeted after the defeat of the Blues

France and South Africa: “Dirty dog”, “How do you control at this level”, “How many times did you hit”… The referee is violently targeted after the defeat of the Blues

Basic
New Zealander Ben O'Keefe, who blew the whistle on Sunday, October 15 during the Blues' elimination in the World Cup quarter-finals against the Springboks (29-28), was not spared from some fans who consider him partly responsible for the French defeat. Even Thomas Pesquet chimed in with a tweet!

From the minutes after the final whistle, the referee was the target of some fans. On Sunday 15 October, the French Rugby XV was eliminated from the World Cup in the quarter-finals by South Africa (29-28). The meeting, as expected, is very busy with a lot of communication.

The players of both teams were subjected to one blow after another, and there were many shocks. Too many, and above all, those committed by the Springboks that were not punished by New Zealand's match referee, Ben O'Keefe.

Some supporters believe the ruling was too lenient with some interventions.

How can you control this level and not whistle at that???
In my opinion, the referee is supposed to referee football, but he found himself there by chance. It is not possible otherwise.#FRAvRSA pic.twitter.com/9niGLEueSl
