Cardiff Blues ran out 31 – 30 winners after clinching victory with a 78th minute Gareth Anscombe penalty having staged an impressive comeback.

However there a were a number of controversial decisions, not least Cardiff’s second try.

However, immediately after the official Gloucester Rugby posted a Tweet that has been described as ’embarassing’, in ‘poor taste’ and ‘amazingly misjudged’.

The tweet that was deleted after a couple of minutes read: “A long, season decided by that. Decisions from officials swing the fixture. And the average Premiership team are beaten.”

They acknowledged the faux pas shortly thereafter, but not before it was highlighted in postmatch coverage.

 

The Tweet was widely condemned, not least by Gloucester fans themselves.

 

 

 

A few minutes the later the account tweeted: “Congratulations Cardiff Blues. A pleasure to lock horns with you tonight in a great spectacle.”

 

 

A reminder to step away from Twitter after a tight loss.
