The linesman that looks like Barry Chuckle calls a forward pass - no try.

I don't believe that. That touch judge can see a forward pass from 60 m when the away side score but cant see two successive forward passes within 20 m when it's the home side scoring.

Don't mind being wrong in games like that. I thought Hull lacked something in that 2nd half. There were a few times when they had a good outside option but the carrier held the ball instead of letting it go. Huddersfield do look very good so far though. The Wardle try was well worked and broke down a great Hull defence, which made it even better.

With a stable coach I think they could be tough to beat this year. I know in the past they collapse near the end, but they have better depth and some great players up front.

Every time i've seen Tom Briscoe play in the last 7 or 8 games he seems to be playing at about 70%.. never seems to return the ball at full tilt like he always used to, and is always flat in attack. Had he been stood deeper for the 'forward pass' it probably would have ended up a try.

Enjoyable game though. Hudds looking good, and finishing games very well. Improvement from Hull in general though.

Good effort there. Very few mistakes. Just couldn't break the line. We need a line breaking prop and a scrum half that can create more gaps if we want to win these tight games with consistency. We also need to play for 80 minutes, not 60!

This is a real problem with Hull isn't it? When exactly the 60 minute period is seems to vary with the team you are playing, but your blokes for whatever reason seem incapable of maintaining their best intensity for the full 80. It must be very frustrating for you Hull fans.

I thought you needed to do more of what your fullback was it tried to do with the chip over the top (as Stevo loves to say). If more of that kind of play can be slotted in then that would be enough to keep opposition players guessing.

From what I have seen, there isnt too much between the majority of the league this year. The telling factor has been fitness. The teams near the top dont clock off until the hooter. The teams around mid table start to lapse.

And FWIW I though his hands were moving backwards and his momentum carried the ball forward. A TJ the far side should never be allowed to call plays like that as referees are told to watch the hands, not the ball. How is it possible to see the movement of the hands from so far away?

Thought Danny Houghton was fantastic tonight, played the full 80 mins and made 65 tackles. Very impressive.

Still nowhere near the true man of the match in Danny Brough... :rolleyes:

Agree with Wellsy to a point, we have very little direction in the middle of the park.

But as for only playing for 60 mins, I thought the Hull players' heads only dropped after the touchie's distant intervention for Briscoe's disallowed try, difficult to blame them tbh.

Spot on.

Absorbing contest in which both teams played a full part.

Just felt Hudds were always going to win it was like Hull were busting a gut to stop the dam from breaking - and admirably so - but they were not asking enough questions themselves.

Good tough game, few penalties and two well matched sides, I still can't get my head round all this stuff with forward passes, I must be getting too old, for me if the ball goes forward It's forward, By the time we have finished with which way the hands are pointing and the momentum rule we are going to be deciding with computers, can we not just stick to, if the the ball goes forward it's forward.
It was a hard grind that and exactly what the Giants needed, I thought the Hull forwards played really well, and the score didn't really reflect the closeness of the game, A win over Hull is always welcome home or away, next week is another gig one.

Just watched the game back. I think Phil Bentham actually heard Aaron Murphy shouting 'forward' into that touch judge's face.

Sitting behind the posts I didn't really have a clue about any of the forward pass calls. I hadn't realised how unevenhanded the application of that law had been during the game.

Very much like the Hull v Warrington game in that respect. Tremendous effort but the opposition found another gear that we didn't match.

The rule on forward passes hasn't changed
The interpretation on forward passes hasn't changed

What's changed is the amount we see the game on TV and how much we can watch plays over And over

For as long as I can remember Leeds and Saints have "got away with ridiculous forward passes" (just like Wigan have got away with dirty play)

The only rule there is, is that if the ref thinks if was forward, it was. Nothing else matters

Good enjoyable game, but coach Peter Gentle's mateship with Ben Galea is hurting Hull FC this year. Gentle keeps playing for 80 minutes even though his defence is pathetic.
Also, i think Westerman is being restricted by poor coaching.

Not even the distant touch judge's opinion?

TV Tony misses nowt, pedantic as a pedantic goes. Great game, and a draw wouldn't have beentotally wrong, but I feel Giants deserved the win. We once watched him ref am amateur game at Newsome, every play took an age as he dissected it, explained it and eventually let play go on. It's a shame he wasn't in line (from oppo line) for the Giants forward pass but he wasn't and that's how the cookie crumbles.

Really enjoyed the game, and appreciate your points

Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer

To be honest, anything that upsets Hull fans is ok by me ;)
