Jaco Peyper came in for a world of criticism from the Irish after his refereeing performance against New Zealand, and he was in charge of the England and Australia game at Twickenham earlier.
In truth, he wasn't having the worst of games, not as bad as he did in the Aviva. That was until Ben Youngs' try just after halftime. The try itself was fine, but the buildup? Well...
Now, we're not saying that that pass was forward. But it definitely wasn't backwards. Or straight. And he's right beside it.
England won comfortably to complete the calendar year unbeaten, but the rugby world agreed on one thing it seemed.
Peyper had another shocker.
There were the English fans
peyper is a desperately poor ref. Thankful for a decent TMO at least today. #ENGvAUS never a yellow

Here we go again! Another game ruined by the ref. Jaco Peyper you're a joke. Forward pass miss, leads to try, kills game! Dickhead! #ENGvAUS

And then we had the many, many neutrals. South Africans, Welsh, and of course the Irish
What's the point of Jaco Peyper? 😂 #ENGvAUS

Jaco Peyper is determined to not make a decision about anything that happens in this game. Ever 🙈😂 #ENGvAUS

What is the point in having Jaco Peyper as ref? Man is useless and can't make a decision

Jaco Peyper as usual a horrific test referee. Never in control of the ball and a blatant forward pass in a key period in the game.

We fully expect him to be in charge of Ireland's next major game. Just for the LOLZ.
