Two decisions could have had a different bearing on the game. In the first half Jarrad Stack put the ball down on the try-line and the ref, who was on the wrong side of the play, said he had grounded it short. Within a minute they had gone down the other end and scored. Then in the second half Brett Carter seemed to have scored a good try only for the ref to call it a double movement.
The game is getting as bad as rugby union now for forward passes. I remember the TJ's controller, Tony Brown, telling us that you have to watch the players hands when he passes the ball. Well he should have passed that message on to the touch judges who were operating today!!!!
Town defended quite well but I thought that in the second half we tended to play too much one man stuff and that was never going to get us any where against the big Leigh pack. Scott Kaighan picked up the man of the match award but I hope Charlo is going to also give Scotty a copy of the match to compare his kicking against the Leigh kicking game. Where we were putting up in the air directly to their full-back their kicker was keeping it low between our players and making us start our 6 plays from our own 10 metres time after time.
Today's performance would have been good enough against many teams in our league and hopefully the lads can kick on from here starting next week at Rochdale in the Cup.
