France international Remy Grosso has slammed the decision to not punish All Blacks Ofa Tu’ungafasi and Sam Cane after a controversial double hit from the duo left him with a double skull fracture.
Grosso’s teammate Kevin Gourdon called New Zealand ‘cheats’ and said the All Blacks tended to get the rub of the green from referees “because they win all their games”.
“The All Blacks cheat, of course, but it’s certainly related to the fact they play good rugby… which has a positive effect on the referees,” added the flanker.
And now Grosso has come out in similar fashion, stating if France did something similar they would ‘get punished.’
“[Tu’ungafasi] sees me coming, he sees that I am down and he still makes the gesture to move his shoulder,” Grosso said.
“If the referee whistles foul, Cane must at least take a yellow, and their [prop] a red.
“If we do the same thing, we French get punished.”
France and the All Blacks clash again tomorrow in the 2nd Test at Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
