Was Tonga robbed of a match winning try in their 20-18 World Cup semi-final loss to England?

Tongan fans believe their team was robbed and marched down Queen Street and sang hymns of protest. An online petition has gathered tens of thousands of signatures

So why didn't the referee go upstairs?

Former British league player Julian O'Neill explains exactly what happened at the end of the Tonga-England match with that disallowed try.

He says both teams played very well, and the final moment should have gone to the video referee especially given this was a world cup semi final.
