Nigel Owen's brutal response to rude fan
REACTION: Nigel Owens is renowned as a no-nonsense referee. He is equally brutal off the field.
Owens, ranked the world’s top referee, was in charge of France’s 24-17 upset win over England in Paris at the weekend.
One, presumably, England fan did not take too kindly to the loss and seemed to blame it on Owens.
In a rude post he called out the referee, who responded in brutal fashion to put the supporter in his place.
And Owens received lots of support from twitter followers, who applauded him for his swift retribution.
You may award the try! 😂😂😂 #number1
