Louis Rees-Zammit cruelly robbed of wonder try only James Lowe could score

It looks like the trend of letting players score while standing in touch only lasted a week, as we all returned to normality on Friday night as Gloucester hosted Harlequins in the Gallagher Premiership.

Wales and Gloucester winger Louis Rees-Zammit would have hoped that the same TMO was in charge of the match that Ireland’s James Lowe had against France last week in the Guinness Six Nations, or that the officials decided to just abandon the laws of rugby for the sake of a good try again.

It was more or less the same finish from both wingers, however, in Gloucester’s game the TMO decided to use/ was provided with an angle that clearly showed the Welshman’s foot in touch- the angle that France supporters have shared relentlessly this week.

Take a look at the disallowed try:

It was a disappointing end to what would have been a brilliant solo try from the  22-year-old, but he did bag his try later in the match, which turned out to be the winner in the final ten minutes of the match.

Gloucester director of rugby George Skivington praised his winger after the match, saying:

“He has been sitting on the sidelines for a little while.

“We know what he can do but you have got to go and do it. Some boys put him into some really nice positions and gave him the opportunity, and he capitalised on that.

“If he stepped in at the end he would have finished that (disallowed try), but it was pretty special.

“No one had the right to score that try, but he got another shot later in the game and he took it. Whatever happened in this game, we weren’t seeing him next week.”
