Former Fiji 7’s coach, Ben Ryan says the officiating of the game between Fiji and Wales was an absolute disgrace where World Rugby owes Fiji an apology while their officiating team need censuring in some way.


Ryan highlighted this in his tweets over English referee Matthew Carley, bemoaning Carley’s inconsistent decisions, and insisting that the officiating had killed Fiji.


He says there was no yellow card given to Wales after multiple penalties on their line, but the officiating referee and the timekeepers were so disappointing.


He says with Carley’s disgraceful performance during Wales’ Rugby World Cup win over Fiji, the Pacific Islanders are owed an apology.


However, Wales claimed a thrilling bonus point to go second in Pool C, putting themselves in position to qualify for the quarter-finals with a win that came as the result of Carley’s dreadful performance, with many viewers claiming he heavily favoured Wales in his decisions.


Meanwhile, Fiji Water Flying Fijians head coach Simon Raiwalui steered clear of outright blaming Carley for his team’s defeat by revealing that they would be reviewing the game, with several decisions going against them a surprise.
