Many Scottish fans felt the turning point was a yellow card for a ‘deliberate’ knockout when Australian Jack Dempsey stuck out an arm to attempt an interception.

Reduced to 14 men, the All Blacks scored two tries while Dempsey was out of the park, including Mark Telea’s second try, which many felt warranted a second look from the TMO with unanswered questions about the defeat.

The try was awarded on the pitch without a second glance at Telea’s positioning, who saw the ball bounce off her chest area as she dived.

Scotland fans felt a second look was necessary, writing that the humiliation was “never in control” and “suspicious of punishing”.

After watching a replay of the attempt on the big screen as Jordie Barrett lined up his kick, fans on the ground “screamed murder blue,” according to another fan.
