Romain Poite: “Don’t be scared, Johnny.”

Posted by

You just got to love the communication between players and the referee in rugby union. Romain Poite was the man in the middle for the big clash between Scotland vs Ireland at Murrayfield Edinburgh on Sunday afternoon.

There was a moment in the game Romain Poite allowed Irish captain Johnathan Sexton talk to his player, but of course Sexton was wary of this having seen what happened to English captain two weeks before that against Wales in Cardiff.

So you can’t blame the Leinster and Irish out-half being overly cautious when it came Romain Poite telling the Irish captain to talk to his players.

Ireland play England next in their final game of the tournament a massive game for both sides to try and finis on a high. England had a massive win against France at home in Twickenham and Ireland had that great win against the Scots in Murrayfield, so all roads lead to the Aviva Stadium for a 16:45 kick-off.
