    Kiwi head of rugby Referee's Chris Pollock is gutted to see rugby official Wayne Barnes exit the game on a bad note


    The 44-year-old bows out as the world's most experienced official....exiting after his wife, Polly, revealed he's been subjected to online abuse and death threats following the World Cup final between the All Blacks and South Africa.

    Pollock says that condemnation is overshadowing Barnes' legendary career.
