WATCH: Rogue ref who answers to no one awards try one metre from the try line
It’s a tale as old as time, man gets whistle, man becomes corrupted by the power, man tries to bend an entire sporting organisation to his will.
Never was this more evident than the below clip from a Spanish league match, where the ref drunk on power decided to make his own bastardised rules, mixing rugby and NFL.
Presumably, he had been out the night before watching an American football match and thought he would change the rules of rugby forever, putting an end to grounding the ball.
He would become the second coming of Webb Ellis, enshrined in rugby folklore, with statues to commemorate the moment, never to be forgotten.
