A New Zealand rugby referee has come under fire after appearing to congratulate a Fijian player after his team scored a try during a World Cup clash with Australia.
Kiwi referee Ben O’Keeffe was caught on camera seemingly giving a 'low five' to Fijian fullback Kini Murimurivalu after his team edged ahead 21-12.
The controversial moment came after Fijian winger Waisea Nayacalevu crossed the line in front of a packed crowd in Sapporo, Japan, on Saturday.
