WATCH: The performance of French referee Jerome Garces – in New Zealand’s 23-13. World Cup win in Yokohama – continues to make waves.
Not only was there Kieran Read’s obvious and deliberate foul on Pieter-Steph du Toit at a line-out, but his teammate Joe Moody has joined his captain in coming under fire for cheap shots.
Images and videos have emerged of the All Black prop in two separate incidents of alleged foul play.
It once again raises the issue of favourable treatment for New Zealand by match officials.
