Matt Carley should be ashamed of that performance. Wales just get warnings after warnings after warnings… Fiji get a card … disgraceful, Fiji robbed #WALvFIJ
Fiji genuinely should launch an official complaint about referee Matthew Carley's performance. It will probably go right in the bin, but they weren't in any way treated fairly in a crucial game. World Rugby need to get the head out of the sand and deal with this.

This last 20 from Matthew Carley has been embarrassing.
Refereeing is hard. His decisions on points of law, fine!
His difference in application of yellow cards, *embarrassing*.
I use the word not lightly, and deliberately.#WALvFIJ

I'm sorry, but how is Matthew Carley being consistent there?
Yellow card straight away at one end, 4 pens at the other and nothing but a warning.
Fiji burned by officiating there.

The Fijians can feel extremely hard done by..
