Adam Jones criticises WRU for banning referee

Wales international Adam Jones has tweeted to criticise the WRU for banning a referee following a comment made on the social networking site.

Adam Jones said that "maybe If the WRU worried about themselves and the regions sorting their c**p out and not banning a ref for tweeting we may get somewhere!"

Hugh Watkins resigned live on the BBC's Scrum V programme after he was banned for 12 weeks after he questioned the decision by the referee in the Hong Kong Sevens final between Wales and Fiji not to show a red card for a dangerous tackle.


Sorry that's a shocker. Had to be red no other option. We need referees to be consistent in this area.

The WRU have told ITV News that they don't want to comment further at this time as disciplinary action is currently being taken.
