- Current Referee grade:
- Level 8
I haven't watched it back to be sure, but my memory of events is that WB made the final decision based on the clips that were shown to him... the TMO may have seen that last clip, but it definitely was not shown to WB, and therefore was not considered when he made his decision whether to award the try. As suggested by the OP, I think WB may have made a different decision if he had seen this last angle.
I'm not sure you can state that.
What you see on TV and what the ref sees on the big screen in the stadium may not be the same thing.
