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.

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