World Rugby investigating photo of referee Jaco Peyper mocking France's Sebastien Vahaamahina

World Rugby investigating photo of referee Jaco Peyper mocking France's Sebastien Vahaamahina”

Les Bleus played the last half hour of the match with 14 men, after lock Sebastien Vahaamahina was red carded for recklessly elbowing Welshman Aaron Wainwright in the face.

Peyper was officiating his 50th Test match as Wales progressed to their semi-final against South Africa in Yokohama on Sunday, 2 November.

But he followed the lead of captain Alun Wyn Jones in insisting the champagne would stay on ice despite reaching the semi-finals for the first time since losing to France in 2011.

He said Japanese rugby fans have been increasing in number, so he hopes to play in more matches that will inspire them.

"We not only can grind teams down with the pack we've got, dominate aerially with the kicking game, we can also move the ball around and use our threats in the backs", Adams said. We kept working away in a tough, physical game after France came out of the blocks well.

"The officials dealt with it appropriately".

"I am fine at the moment".

Inconsistent interpretation by referees of new guidelines over high tackles had led to confusion and dismay from coaches and players, but before the quarter-finals World Rugby chief Bill Beaumont insisted that standards had improved.

Speaking in Japanese, Leitch said they could achieve their goal because Joseph was able to create what they call "One Team".

Wainwright, who cuts a distinctive figure on the field thanks to a moustache, marked his try with an unusual stag impression and explained the gesture to reporters.

"With the moustache, all my mates went to Prague on a boys' holiday and said they were going to grow moustaches". "I don't know if there was afterwards either - could have just been a loose arm".

"I certainly don't feel like I am missing out now, being here".
