I think the RFL Refs on Twitter is excellent. Don't have any problem with Silverwood's call. The refs know the rules best, they watched that incident again on video, so don't have a problem. Wasn't much room for doubt in Justin's case, was there?
There was one Tweet from the Wigan game (I think) where the ref said "Yep, got that one wrong".
Good on them.
I think if fans read the Twitter account with an open mind, many of us will learn a few things about the rules and how they are interpreted.
Fans might actually enjoy watching the games more, unless they get off in shouting themselves blue in the face telling the (professional, experienced & trained) ref, that he doesn't know the rules!!
No doubt with Poore, but my point was that McGuire threw exactly the same number of punches, and simply because he missed he's not been punished. My understanding is that intent is intent and should be punished.
I love the account, but I just wonder whether Silverwood got this wrong at the time and has chosen to justify his call with a wishy washy explanation. I'm just seeking a bit of clarity.
