Spain and Belgium players clash Spain round on Romanian referee after rugby World Cup qualifier loss
Lora Ball | 18 March, 2018, 21:45

Spanish rugby federation president Alfonso Feijoo tweeted his disgust at the referee shortly after the contest.

A poor performance from a Romanian referee helped Belgium upset Spain 18-10 on Sunday, which saw Romania qualify for the 2019 World Cup instead.

For Romania, the outcome in Brussels extended their record of competing at every World Cup since its inception in 1987, topping the table by three points from Spain.

Georgia finished top of the qualifying standings with 19 points, while Romania finished second on 14 points, with Spain a point further back.

Romanian referee Vlad Iordachescu was pursued by furious Spain players and several supporters and needed to be escorted off the pitch by competition officials.

"Everyone who has seen the game will judge the referee".

"Our game was stopped continuously, the Belgians benefited from many more decisions", he said after struggling to calm down his incensed players at the final whistle with even the Belgian players coming to Iordachescu's rescue.

Yet they rarely got going on a mud-caked pitch in Brussels and ugly confrontations broke out at the final whistle as members of the Spanish coaching staff tried to restrain their players, who were angered by Belgium's exuberant celebrations. "He gave ten penalties against us, the result comes from that", he posted on Twitter.

Despite the defeat, Spain finished as the second-placed team in European qualification and they must now play Portugal for the right to face Samoa in a home and away play-off.

The victor on aggregate will join Romania in Pool A as the playoff victor, and the loser will go to a four-team repechage in November with Canada and two other teams.
