FORMER Sandbach Rugby Club player Mark Cueto became the centre of a row over technology after England's 19-13 defeat to Ireland in the Six Nations on Sunday.
The Sale Sharks winger, who went to school in Crewe, had his first-half try chalked off for offside by South African referee Jonathan Kaplan.
He decided not to check video replays, and ruled that Cueto was ahead of Charlie Hodgson when the fly-half hoisted his cross-field kick for him to pick up.
But England coach Andy Robinson, who also felt that Josh Lewsey's disallowed try was also valid, said: 'I'm livid. We've got to go back to technology. I don't know why we didn't.
'This could have been a very famous victory. I think Mark Cueto scored a perfectly legal try. I am still trying to work it out. We are very disappointed, and this will hurt.'
England have lost their first three matches in this year's Six Nations. They face Italy at Twickenham at 4pm, on Saturday, March 12.
