I think part of the problem is the ref blew before the ball had actually been made dead... England 11 ends up with it but stood in-goal. We have no grounding, nor ball tig or over the dbl.
So in that regard I suppose the ref is correct... But surely he shouldn't have put himself in that position initially?
but it would be strange to allow play to continue in that circumstance as white could run the ball out and you might never go back to check if there was any grounding and who grounded it.
