Did the officials miss a forward pass for New Zealand's first try?

Should Jerome Kaino’s try have stood?

NEW ZEALAND BEAT South Africa to book their place in the Rugby World Cup final, but there was controversy surrounding the first of the All Blacks’ tries.

Jerome Kaino powered over in the corner in the sixth minute but there was more than a suspicion that the final pass, popped up into the air by captain Richie McCaw, was forward.

Unusually, referee Jerome Garces did not ask the TMO to review McCaw’s pass and Kaino’s try stood.
