Sandercock's like a broken record. He seemed completely unwilling to accept that there was any other factor in the defeat other than the referee.

Radio Humberside's Lee Richardson clearly thought he was talking ###### but was too polite to put it that way.


He sounds like a man who already knows his fate.

It seems the slhighlights person has removed the video for this game, I'll update it if/when the video is restored.

We were beaten by a side that possess real quality halves, players who run get lines, hit gaps and can offload extremely well.

 

I was very impressed with Huddersfield but also impressed with our 100% effort and endeavour. We gave it everything and simply came up short against a side who I may have a few quid on finishing top of the pile come playoff time.

 

Alibert was poor in parts. He missed a blatant forward pass for a Huddersfield try and (although I'd have to watch it again) gave a scrum to Huddersfield despite Rovers utilising the 'free play' rule after a Huddersfield error.

 

We have much to improve on though. We gave away 7 penalties in 20 minutes and I think at one point the penalty count was 11-1 against us - you can't tell me the ref is at fault for that.

 

You only have to read this thread to see how a home and away supporter view the official. Ant's side won and he thought the official was poor against his side. My team lost and I think Alibert made a couple of gaffs.

 

I am a huge supporters of officials and improving standards and yesterday highlighted to me that, although I never bag official or divulge in vitriolic tirades of abuse at the man in the middle like we see quite often at games, standards must improve.

I was confused by that one initially, but as the scrum was forming he signalled to the Rovers players (rightly complaining) that the ball was actually stripped one on one, so the play on and subsequent scrum was the right call - HKR got the ball not through a giants mistake but their own efforts, Giants defence then snuffed that effort out

It's been noted that the Giants defence switched off - perhaps because they never doubted they could score plenty - against a team like Rovers that's a bit scuicidal - they have a lot of running and a dazzling to watch in the red zone with the number of ball runners they have

At 22-0 though came the turning point, one dropped ball due to overplaying it and trying to score on every play let Rovers have a sniff

What is pleasing is last year we'd have lost this game

Ah, thanks for clearing that up. With it being up the other end of the pitch we were a bit confused as to what had happened.

Yeah I thought he'd dropped a clanger too, he maybe doesn't do himself many favours due to his lack of clear signals

That pass back inside to Grix to break through for Lunt's first try was as good as you'll see anywhere
