The IRB (International Rugby Board) has been the focus of several controversies during the Rugby World Cup so far.

The IRB also had to respond to criticism following its decision to fine a Samoan player $10,000 for wearing a branded mouth guard.

Samoan teammate Eliota Sapolu also got in hot water for tweets criticising the short turnaround between games for tier two teams.
