England captain Owen Farrell was absolutely furious with Pascal Gauzere this evening following a controversial try by Wales.
The home side took the lead through an early Dan Biggar penalty before grabbing the opening try of the game in controversial circumstances.
With Farrell penalised at the ruck, Gauzere told the England captain to speak to his team as their penalty count was quite high over a short period of time.
But despite being told he had time to speak to his players, Gauzere blew the whistle why they were still in a huddle and Biggar took advantage with an opportunist kick that led to Josh Adams crashing over in the corner.
Have a look below.. was Farrell right to be angry?
Wales get the opening try! 🏴
