Autumn Nations final referee receiving storm of abuse from angry French fans on social media

Andrew Brace, the referee for the final of the Autumn Nations Cup over the weekend is receiving a lot of abuse from angry rugby fans after the final.

The Welsh referee has a public social media account on Twitter, which has become the target for hundreds of French fans who were upset about the nature of France’s narrow loss to England at the weekend.

England narrowly won the final of the Autumn Nations Cup on Sunday after Owen Farrell slotted a penalty in the 96th minute of the game.

Many rugby fans harmlessly joked that Brace was favouring England in the final, however, this was never truly a serious thing. It seems though that many French fans genuinely feel like he favoured the men in white over the weekend, and have therefore decided to go after the referee on social media.

Brace has received hundreds of abusive tweets on social media in the last few hours.
