Hurricanes captain TJ Perenara has been praised for his honesty after an act of sportsmanship during his side’s 26-23 win over the Jaguares.
With the Hurricanes down 23-12 in the late stages of the game, Perenara looked to have scored a try after bundling over the try line over a pile of Jaguares players.
However, referee Rasta Rasivhenge’s view of the grounding was blocked and, before the call went up to the TMO, Perenara quickly cleared up the confusion.
Rasivhenge asked “Did you get it TJ?” to which Perenara replied: “No.”
Rasivhenge, who seemed surprised by Perenara’s reply, thanked the Canes captain for his honesty.
The Hurricanes will take on the Sharks at 6.05pm Saturday.
Looking at other matches this week, the Blues will take on the Crusaders at 6.05pm Friday, the Rebels will face the Waratahs at 8.15pm Friday, the Sunwolves will play the Chiefs at 3.45pm Saturday, the Brumbies will face the Highlanders at 8.15pm Saturday, the Lions will play the Stormers at 1.05am Sunday and the Reds will take the Jaguares at 9.40am Sunday.
