So he’s made a mistake and he’s got that wrong,’ Hansen said.‘The thing that annoyed me most about that incident, and still does to this day, is that we haven’t had an apology from World Rugby.’New Zealand Rugby requested an explanation from the game’s governing body in the immediate wake of the series but has never received a reply.Hansen believed World Rugby referee boss Alain Rolland was wrong to never address the issue, something that Poite had done in person.‘We’ve had conversations with Romain and we just said, “Move on, Romain, you can’t change it, it’s not your problem.” All we wanted was for the head of the rugby referees to say, “Look, sorry we’ve got that wrong.” And then you can turn around and say to the players, “OK boys, the decision was wrong, but we’ve just got to cop it.”‘Lions coach Warren Gatland recently raised the prospect of a fourth Test being played between the teams next year as a series decider before the combined outfit embarks on its scheduled tour of South Africa.Photo: Getty Images Published on April 30, 2020 ‘last_img read more
