Referee: Craig Joubert (South Africa)
Assistant referees: Jérôme Garces, Greg Garner (England)
TMO: Graham Hughes (England)

    However, a wonderful victory was soured by the disgusting behaviour of All Black hooker Andrew Hore, who displayed the worst kind of thuggish behaviour with a cheap shot on Welsh lock Bradley Davies – which resulted in the No.4 having to leave the field after being knocked out cold with a punch from behind.

    How does he get away with it?

    Looked a lot like what Burger Geldenhuis did to Andy Dalton.
