That surely has to be one of the worst video ref decisions ever by Ian Smith there.
No chance that was a try.

a shocker by any stretch, and at such a crucial time it ruined what had been a good game.

I look around
I search the skies
I shade my eyes
So nearly blind
And I see signs of half remembered days
I hear bells that chime in strange familiar ways
I recognise...
The hope you kindle in your eyes

Was a disgrace of a decision, when you think about the try that Crusaders had dissalowed that was marginally offside.

And its cost Wire 2nd spot! sad.gif

Yes it did cost wire 2nd spot, the game was in the balance up till that decision. As for Roby saying he deserved the benefit of the doubt............yeah course you did you clown.

After hearing him say that I think I nearly despise Roby as much as I do Wellens, who was constantly waving his arms at the ref after every Crusaders try.

It's a bit like Dessie Drummond on 101 tries and a kick when he flew through the air for Leigh and bounced in basketball style!!!

Glad to see some of the old skool on this forum!

What, you mean this was as bad as the Scott Moore try against Salford? Ahh! It was Saints! Must have been a try then!

Definitely "benefit of the doubt" call. biggrin.gif

Can't remember us ever beating skints in a semi, Frank, unless it was a Brian Bevan effort that still riles you.
When we did play Skints in a semi at Central Park, John Bevan was pulled back for a forward pass which would have won it, and if thrown by Skints would have been given.
We lost 12-8, I think.
However, refs see the game from 1 angle, full speed, it's the way it was.
Video calls, however, surely they can't get so many apparently wrong?
If there's a serious doubt, I'll say they should deny the try now, benefit the defence for something.
Wires record breaking 10 match run: L 16-17 ; L 34-36 ; L 24-44 ; L 20-38 ; L 8-46; L 14-26 ; L 20-40 ; L 22-48 ; L 14-20 ; L 8-60. Thanks Jimmy.The Glamour Club. Apparently.

Well if you want dodgy video ref decisions go find the posts about the Cas/Warrington game earlier in the season. No need to go digging up the 80's.

After Smith gave Westwoods double movement try on Fri, I'm not suprised he gave this try also.
