Leicester Tigers have lodged a formal complaint with ERC about the period of play in which the Ospreys had an extra man on the field.
While Lee Byrne was off the field receiving treatment on his ankle, Sonny Parker made up the numbers, but when Byrne was fit again, he rejoined the action before Parker was withdrawn.
There probably wouldn’t be much to complain about, but it just so happened that these events coincided with one of Leicester’s most promising attacks, and it was Lee Byrne who was the last defender as Ben Youngs raced away.
The Ospreys will probably get a fine, but it’s too little too late for the Tigers. Should referee Alan Lewis have awarded a penalty? Or a penalty try perhaps?
What do you think will happen now? A replay would probably be the only consolation for the Tigers, but this seems pretty unlikely. I don’t actually think that Leicester deserved to win anyway, but their fans might be feeling differently!
