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.
