Ryan has taken to social media with tweets over Matthew Carley’s inconsistent decisions, calling out the fact that there was no yellow card given to Wales after multiple penalties on their line while Fiji were attacking, followed by a yellow card to Fiji just minutes later.

Ryan has also called out the timekeepers saying they were disappointing.

Wales claimed a bonus point to go second in Pool C, putting themselves in position to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Many viewers have called the Welsh win a result of Carley’s dreadful performance, claiming he heavily favoured Wales in his decisions.
