Ben Smith has been embroiled in controversy following the Highlanders victory over the Crusaders on the weekend. The Landers co-captain rushed up to obstruct a conversion attempt from Mitch Hunt after Jordan Taufua scored just before half time, then plead his case with the referee before picking up the ball and retreating to his goal line. The try was subsequently overturned by the TMO.

Sanzaar referees boss Lyndon Bray has waded in to say that a warning will be issued to all Super Rugby teams about how and when their captains may speak to on field referees, but it is unclear yet if Ben Smith has actually broken any rules. It is also unclear whether the TMO followed correct protocol when overturning the try.
