Castleford Tigers bemoan disallowed try

Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell said that the decision to disallow a crucial Castleford score midway through the second-half of their 24-24 draw with Leeds was “a joke”, and things have to change regarding the controversial obstruction ruling.

Tigers full-back Luke Dorn told Sky Sports after the game that if the try had been allowed rather than be chalked off for obstruction, the Tigers would have won the game. And Powell said after the match that it was clearly a try, and said the game has descended into a “joke” with the ruling.

“It was a try every day of the week; I don’t know what they’re doing. The game’s a joke when they’re doing things like that,” Powell said.

“There was no impact made. It was a ridiculous decision. At the moment it is a joke the way they’re making these decision. I think they’re losing respect. I don’t think there is a coach in Super League who agrees with the way it’s being refereed and it needs to change.”
