Scottish Rugby has written to the governing body of the sport seeking a public acknowledgment over the officiating errors made in the final seconds of Scotland's Six Nations defeat to France.

The SRU has emailed World Rugby calling on chiefs to address the apparent U-turn made by officials at Murrayfield on Saturday.

As Sam Skinner went to ground after ploughing his way over the try line, referee Nic Berry initially called no try, with his vision of the ball heavily obscured in real-time. 

Of course, it was then up to the TMO to analyse the situation. After lengthy deliberation between the video assistants and Berry, it seemed that what would've been a match-winning try was to be awarded. 

However, this then appeared to be changed at the last minute, with the decision made to stick with Berry's no-try call, determining that the images of the incident were inconclusive. 

The SRU has now challenged the process between the on-field official and the TMO. They have urged World Rugby to admit that a mistake was made. 

Gregor Townsend wrote to World Rugby's head of referees, Joel Jutge and Phil Davies, director of rugby at the governing body post-match. 

Scotland's head coach carried out that process as part of standard post-match protocol when seeking clarification over decisions made by officials.
