REACTION: Not all was happy with Beauden Barrett’s performance during his 100th Test for the All Blacks.

The New Zealand flyhalf scored two tries to help his team record a 54-16 win over Wales on Saturday.

However, it was his attempted intercept in the first half that has caused a social media stir.

The 30-year-old tried to intercept a pass, but was nowhere near catching the ball and in the end prevented Wales of scoring try.

After review from the TMO, the referees decided on just a penalty, which left fans fuming.

One Twitter user wrote: “I don’t normally talk about sport, but if the Rugby Championship can have a slew of yellow cards for knocking the ball out of play earlier this year, they should have given a yellow card to Beauden Barrett.”
