Should England's try have stood? Maro Itoje's late winner | Whistle Watch with Nigel Owens



Wednesday is upon us so Whistle Watch returns, as Nigel Owens takes us through the world of rugby through a referee’s eyes. We look at whether Maro Itoje’s late winning try for England should have stood, Dan Biggar’s incident in Wales v Italy, and Leicester Fainga’anuku’s superb try in Crusaders v Chiefs. Plus, we challenge Nigel to ‘never have I ever’, and as always we go through your questions and queries.

Keep your questions coming in to be in with a chance of it appearing on next week’s show.

  1. 'I guess if you were French you could argue you can't see it being grounded, and if you were English you could argue you could see it being grounded'
    – Yes, thanks for the awesome insight Nige

  2. I m french and honestly referee was good. Itoje try is good too.

    Just it s not normal video refere >main refere. I dont say that for this situation because itoje try is OK

  3. Even if I was a French supporter I would still think that it Emma’s a try. Maro Itoje grounded the ball over the line then was held up by Teddy Thomas. Love Nigel Owens and I’m sure everyone will miss him.

  4. Re Crusaders try: I thought touching anything beyond the touch line was out and so his boot going through grass would be out, or does it have to be dirt that it touches?

  5. @World Rugby and @NigelOwens after the abuse refs as well as player have been getting online this year Six nation I personally believe as part as the commentary team at half time there should be a form ref to discuss the ref calls maybe this could lead to less abuse with people can see where the ref is coming from laws wise in his decision what do you think

  6. Question from the Southern Hemisphere. In Reds vs Force game, Frasier McReight had a try disallowed due to him being offside at the ruck, as another player was bound on to him. What is the difference between this case and binding on for a pick and drive? And in your opinion, try/no try?

  7. Nigel, As a retired referee, I enjoy your little segment. However, can I suggest you refrain from using the phrase "hence why". Hence ostensibly means why, so you are saying "why, why"…

  8. England is 5th in the standings so it wouldn't have mattered. They play boring rugby. France will dominate in the coming years. Ireland and Wales are also very good. Scotland isn't that consistent.

  9. Re Crusaders try: I thought touching anything beyond the touch line was out and so his boot going through grass would be out, or does it have to be dirt that it touches?

  10. I love football and rugby equally before rule changes. Messed up team works hard get to 1 yard line. 1 he thinks he has it reaxhes forward still inch Short. So loses possesion as fumbled it then or holding into ball i guess. Or 2 over gl but cant put it down as pile up stuxk on some ones leg or what ever. I likè hits but say for food gamè. Good gamè cross gl w possesion and down it but leg or Person in way try. More descusion but jest of it.
