‘Was the ref just making it up at the end?’: England fans fume at late refereeing decision

The Six Nations is known for its drama and the Calcutta Cup did not disappoint today, as Scotland edged past England 20-17.

The game went well past the 80 minute mark as referee Ben O’Keefe reset scrum after scrum in Scotland’s half with England’s put in. There was one particular scrum though where England looked as though they had won a penalty, only for O’Keefe to reset the scrum instead. This has set social media on fire, with angry England fans insisting it was a penalty. This is what has been said:
