WATCH: This super controversial schoolboy decision has split South African rugby

A 72nd-minute decision in a South African schools match has split South African Rugby after the game ended a draw.

Rondebosch in blue are playing Bishops in white at Bishops. With time up on the clock and the score at 10-all, Rondebosch put the ball into a scrum near the half-way line.

Rondebosch win the scrum and the ball goes out to left wing Thoubaan Gabriels who has a bit of an overlap, he kicks the ball downfield, and he and the Bishops right wing race after the bouncing ball, Gabriels getting just ahead of the Bishops player.

Gabriels stoops as if to grab the awkwardly bouncing ball but instead bangs it on with his leg into the Bishops in-goal. The Bishops wing pushes Gabriels in the back and the Rondebosch boy falls into touch-in-goal as the ball heads for the dead-ball line.
