Angus Gardner said Sky Sports it was wrong not to punish Owen Farrell for his tidy headed head on Andre Esterhuizen at the end of England's Test against South Africa.

Gardner was an incredible debate about the last final task of Farrell, who considered Australia legitimately at the time, as he stunned South Africa from having the opportunity to kick a penalty that could have won a victory.

Speaking at the World Rugby Awards in Monaco, during what Gardner was awarded as a referee of the year, the 34-year-old said if he could turn the clock back, he would change his decision.

"I think, when I look back, now, after discussion with some other referees … I believe that the general consensus would probably be a consequence of the result that it should be donated, "Gardner told Rupert Cox on Will Greenwood Podcast

"I think we need to see wrapping with both arms, and I think back – although it was tired – there was not really wrap in both arms. There was wrapped with one arm, but did not wrap it with the other arm. "

He asked why he saw it differently on November 3, Gardner replied: "The angles I saw with the TMO, which were the headings angles, showed a clear clamp of the front arm, but the back bracket set.

"Oh the onglau I was shown in the stadium at that time, that seemed to me enough to wrap me as a legal transaction.

"It was never high, and so we were looking at it was the tackling technique. The collision was also a sort of decision because it was a big rugby collision, and we see these hits in the game. "

Gardner says he is aware that referees will sometimes have an impact on Probation games with their decisions, but say they always aim to improve, and that an honest attitude in reviewing their games helps her official development.

"We do not always get it right, and we understand that decisions will be going to influence the game," said Gardner. "At this level, the expectation is that we get it right – and that is what we are trying to achieve – but we are not always.

"It's probably that's the best way, just to be honest about it. If I made a mistake, I have to put my hand up and say that I'm wrong, and I hope if I could see that again, I'll know where I'm on. "
