“After all the outrage” – Alun Wyn Jones owes referee Angus Gardner an apology

Alun Wyn Jones and his Wales team-mates were left stunned by referee Angus Gardner’s decision to yellow card him in this summer when ‘he apparently did nothing wrong.’

However, a new angle of the incident shared on Reddit, shows the whistleblower clearly got it right.

“Sorry Angus, I was one of the Bok supporters who thought you got that one wrong,” wrote one fan.

Another commented: “Well that just goes to show how important the camera angle is.”

“Alun Wyn Jones.. you cheeky bugger, you! Makes his total shock even more funny if he did actually touch it like this suggests,” a third added.

Alun Wyn Jones said: “We got to know each other very well as team-mates with the Lions and opponents for our clubs and countries. You cannot shy away from how effective the guy was in his position.”
