Could anyone please expalin to me why Ben Black was called back from playing on after a Featherstone knock on at the end of the first half, whilst Liam Finn was allowed to play on from one of ours at the end of the second ?

 

What was the difference ?

He has actually been one of the best referees at Championship level for a while now, but he had an absolute shocker today.

Now where did I leave that pointy thing that bloke Damocles gave me, I've work to do!

he simply ballsed up and we caught a good un. Black should've been under our sticks.
Wasn't the only mistakes he made yesterday its just we got a couple the type of which results are decided by in a tight game.

That was a huge mistake by the ref..we also need to look at why Bostocks try was disallowed in the second half presumably for knocking on from a ripped ball but only the DVD will tell us that; A very entertaining match by two excellent teams;

He obviously doesn't learn from his mistakes -  did exactly the same thing with us last week, bringing back play from a worky knock on with the rams breakaway player all but under the sticks. Would have put us 18 points clear and won us the match. Problem for us is that his decision could cost us far more dearly at the end of the season than yesterdays will the dogs - and he didn't apologise.

When the players start apologising for their mistakes is what I look forward to.

A mystifying decision, which at least he acknowledge after.

A ref should not be engaging in banter with the crowd, however other than the black decision I don't think he had a bad game overall. And certainly not the reason we didn't win.

With the greatest respect to Fev that was there for the taking for both sides, but once again against a top 4 side we fell just short. Frustrating.

How come we are always playing downhill first half?

We either have a rubbish 'tosser', or we choose to play downhill.

Every game, I waith with expectation as the teams come out, only to be disappointed again.

I don't know what the overall stats are, but just lately (and especially in the big games) we always seem to be downhill.

 

Couple this with our penchant for giving the opposition a try or two start, and it makes for an uphill struggle (litterally).

Leave piggy alone - you can't blame everything on him. ;) Now I have to admit it - I really feel for you guys. Back to back defeats to two of the weakest teams in the championship, languishing in fifth place with a fairly useful squad that has the potential to be one of the most potent attacking sides in the championship - it's a wonder you aren't all reaching for the exit pills. Boy am I glad we Rams supporters don't have the same worries. :rolleyes:

This has been a ploy that we have employed since the glory days of Gary Thornton.

 

From memory it was because we always play better uphill.

 

I think JK was on record as saying, a team has to run up the hill to when defending, when going down the slope, so it is beneficial to defend down the slope-easier to retreat to defensive line.

 

Personally I think we should go uphill in the first half, keep things tight for the first 50-60 and then try and blow them away when they tire.

I couldn't agree more Vito.

Playing downhill first half also adds pressure as you know more often than not that you need a decent lead to have a realistic chance to win, even though we do seem to play reasonably well uphill.
