Detailed Report of Incident
Burlington had possession of the ball within five meters of Westmount's goal line. At a tackle and subsequent ruck, Westmount turned the ball over legally. As the Westmount scrum half gathered the ball and turned to pass to his fullback standing in-goal, a Burlington player reached from the scrum and slapped the ball from the scrum half's hands.

Note: I saw the number on the Burlington's player's back as #1. The correct number was #7, although I did not realize it at the time. (The 7 and 1 look quite similar.) Unfortunately for Burlington, #7 did not come forward and the Burlington captain, who suspected I had identified the wrong player, did not attempt to correct the error.
