Agree, scrum where it hit the player.
WTF is the ref doing restarting play when someone leaving the pitch hasn’t left?!
I think that is forgiveable to be honest. No sense in holding up the game so that an injured player can limp off the field. I would have waited for the player to get some distance away and then restarted, just like this ref did.
This sort of incident happens less than once a career.
i think a lot of people are missing the important point here : if you have an injured player & physio on the pitch then the moment the ball comes near them you must stop the game, for safety.
Even if there were uncontested scrums would you position yourself where this referee is standing?
