“The referee is 5 or 6 yards from the incident, he has no person in his line of sight.
“Corry has simply gone to dam it. He is turned his physique and the arm is not in an unnatural place, it is not away from his physique.
“The ball truly hits him extra within the again and the highest of the shoulder, so it’s unbelievable.
“I assumed he has blown for a foul or an offside or one thing at first, I feel it is unbelievable that he has given it for that. No one had claimed for it.
“It is bewildering on this day in age. It is such an important stage of the sport.
“The deal with, the opening deal with, was borderline crimson card, so the referee did us no favours tonight.”
