VAR in football has taken this to the extreme.
Did it hit his arm? Yes.
Was it intentional? No.
Did it affect the play? No.
The goal should have stood.
In rugby, the ref can ask for a review while play continues and during play the video ref can advise the ref to have a look at an incident. The on-field ref has the final say.
Cricket has 'umpire's call' that allows for a margin of error (both ref and technology).
But unless there is a clear and obvious error, let play continue.
There lies the problem because the way the laws are right now, you can't have both.
