Luke Pearce went viral for backing down Billy Vunipola twice after arguing back, but it was the referee who ended up apologizing to number 8.
“He got me. I bit me,” the whistleblower revealed on The Rugby Pod.
“I came out of that pitch and thought, Luke, that’s not your style. That’s not your personality.
“You are there to be the referee. Of course, you’re there to not take shit if someone is abusive. But there’s a good balance between how you treat people and making them look stupid and out of your style.
“Went to Sarries a few months ago for a training session. I spent the day there – just a few scrums, a few lineouts, a bit of play and just apologizing.
“I’m not apologizing for my behavior as Billy was a bit rude to me. But I said mate, that’s not my style, I’m sorry if it happened like that, this that’s not how I work.
