Finally got to watch the game

Not a knock on by Cudjoe in our own goal, he had hold of the ball and it was knocked out of his hands by the hull player - knock on by hull


The forward pass was just that by any measurable standard. Hands were forward, motion of the ball was forward (a lot), the momentum rule doesn't apply because the passer was crabbing sideways - I do feel for Hull because more of those will be awarded as tries than not, but the TJ got it spot on...if we do need to ask questions ask why the near side flag carrier didn't see it

Very high quality game

Will the result of the hull derby decide who gets the sack first gentle or sandercock? April is a tough month for kr

My argument is that the touch judge involved, who apparently over ruled the ref to disallow Briscoe's try, was 50-60m away.

How often do we see an obvious forward pass right in front of a touch judge go unpunished?


I,m not sure i know what a forward pass is anymore, Although watching it on Tv that particular pass looked way forward, and would still have done had the try been given, A few weeks ago the Giants benefited from one at Wakey every bit as forward and the try was given. All a bit too hit and miss for me, How many times do you hear the shout on TV or at the ground FORWARD!!! so are we saying that the touch judges have worked out almost instantly whether the hands were pointing forward or backward and whether or not the momentum rule applied. I suppose we have to trust that we all win some and lose some over the season
Dont expect anything from a pig but a grunt

We didn't throw any :P

In honesty I was only looking out for the two moments most commented on here

As has been commented, top teams always seem to get away with them ;)

Andy Wilson, Guardian.

One last statistic that may have escaped your attention. The Huddersfield team who beat Hull on Saturday night to stretch three points clear at the top of the Super League table included a single overseas player, David Faiumu, in the starting 13, and a second, Ukuma Ta'ai, on the interchange bench. In fact 14 of the 17 were Yorkshiremen, with Cumbria's Shaun Lunt completing the squad.

It's been close to that for some time, the Giants want long term, sustainable success (when it happens)

I didn't particularly notice it myself, I spose not noticing it is a good thing in a way!
