New Zealand prevailed comfortably against Wales in their second test meeting but there was a peculiar exchange between the referee and one of the New Zealand's players which got people talking.

After sharing a 10-10 half-time scoreline, New Zealand scored three tries to seal the win which was the routine part of the night.

But midway through the first half, the Welsh fans had some questions about a conversation between the referee and New Zealand captain Kieran Read.

Waisake Nahola escaped a card following an aerial challenge on Liam Williams which was followed by the referee asking All Blacks captain Read, 'are you happy with that?'

The moment was not well received online.
