Scotland prop Alasdair Dickinson has criticised George Clancy following the Irish referee’s controversial BT Murrayfield performance.
Scotland slumped to their third defeat of this year’s RBS Six Nations after going down 22-19 to Italy, leaving them staring at the ignominy of a fourth wooden spoon in 11 years.
Dickinson insisted Clancy did nothing to help Scotland at the scrum in the first half as the official lectured both sides on their engage method.
Dickinson said: “I think he was making a mountain out of a molehill at times. I better stay politically correct with the media or I’ll get in trouble.”
