VIDEO: Plonker Jonker at it again ...

WATCH as our infamous TMO Marius Jonker gets another call badly wrong.


Late in the first half of Scotland’s 15-13 win over Australia, Wallaby captain Michael Hooper goes over for what appears to be a crucial try – with the Scots leading 7-0.

However, Jonker injects himself into the game – alerting referee Romain Poite to an incident.

After several reviews Wallaby prop Allan Alaalatoa was yellow-carded for a dangerous clean-out.

The more times you watch the replays – the same replies Jonker and Poite saw – the more you realise this was – in Wallaby captain Michael Hooper’s words: ‘A joke of a decision’.

It was Poite’s last Test as a referee. Many will say ‘good riddance’. He has had just too many controversial incidents in his career.

As for Jonker. His moniker of ‘Plonker Jonker’ is fitting.
