RLWC Semi-Final Corruption: Tonga robbed of victory from England

This petition had 6,335 supporters

The unfair controversy sparked immediate attention from the game between England and Tonga. The last play for Tonga was in fact reported as a try in the last seconds of the semi-finals from Andrew Fifita, but the referee didn't review the play. Controversy is illuminating around the referees authorization of the match and it is a clear issue for the rugby league audience. We ask for the Rugby League World Cup organization to review play and conclude fairly as well as investigate further into the complication which occurred. For our community of Tongans, we are deeply saddened by the lack of action initiated by the league organization to review the play. Tonga has brought their passion for their culture, religion and especially for the sport of rugby. The players wear on their backs the pride of Tonga stained with culture, country and their families written on their jersey. It was greatly humbling to see the conduct of Tonga win or lose, to keep the spirit of Tonga alive but it is in our best interest to appease the situation justly. Objectively the the series of evidence against the referees reveal the apparent winner through the footage of the play and the main referee Matt Cecchin ignoring the touch judge's call of 'score' and 'try'. Therefore the truth will unravel itself please pray, sign and hope the rugby organization will recognize the injustice and continue Tonga into the Grand Final for Rugby League World Cup.
