South Africa decided to turn up for the game at Ellis Park and the Australians decided to have a lie-in on Saturday. It was a remarkable comeback game for the Springboks and a much needed boost after a dismal Tri-Nations for the men in green and gold. In the first minutes of the game, Pierre Spies darts for the Aussie goal-line only to be tackled by Lota Tiquiri just short of the goal-line. As he stretches to score Sterling Mortlock comes across and dislodges the ball from Spies. The referee called for the TMO and awards a scrum to the Wallabies for a knock-on by Spies. Now this is where the TMO protocol fails because Spies never crossed the goal-line at any time and was in fact caught up in the tackle with Tequiri. Mortlock entered the tackle from the incorrect side in his attempt to stop the try and should have been penalised for this transgression.
