The only thing that could spoil this game would be a diatribe from Jon Wells.

Oh hang on...............

His breathless rants are embarrassing, and completely pointless.

i may be in the minoritt but I quite like his contribution.

I am a ref.
I am speechless?
Don't ask me what ganson was looking at!

 

I was one up until recently and I have absolutely no idea how that try was given. Disgrace, farce, joke etc.

It's a shame that we can't hear the video ref for Sky unlike for Premier Sports.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

Why all the fuss

He must be on glue to give that, and I backed FC to win


Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.

ganson is repaying us for that male genitals last year


Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

What a  shame we can't recruit better material than Ganson, Hundreds of thousands of people watching one of our show pieces and he pulls another of his stunts, and he is going to be the new Cummings?. Lord help us but we deserve all we get.

One for the Ref's/ex Ref's, I guess. With regard to being 'within the ten' do the rules explicitly define playing at the ball as touching it? Would the rules allow Ganson to judge that Eden played at the ball as it came down even though he didn't touch it?

I'm a Hull fan and believe me that was daylight robbery. I still don't feel sorry for the Dobbins though. ;)

Just to be clear, no.

The rule of staying outside the 10 metres only applies to an opposition player try to catch the ball from a kick. Once Eden had let it bounce it negated the penalty for interference. But the offside still applies to the player unless the opposition player recovers it and gains 10 metres (same as if a player is offside at the play-the-ball) or he touches the ball without gaining possession.

Given the replays show it seemed Ganson decided it was okay from something around the kick, as he then looked at the grounding rather than checking other angles to see if Eden had made any contact with the ball. No idea what he thought he saw though.

A bit  like the intention to do something is as good as doing it , so should be judged the same,  That would be handy for one team i can think of ,They intend to score lots of tries. Lot simpler to get rid of Ganson, the man just never learns.

Tbh, I went to check it to see if there was some rule that ganson knew that I wasn't aware of, but no, it is black and white, in the words of stevo, its n-o-t-r-y. End of!

Maybe he had his foot in touch while he was getting up to play the ball...

1. He hasn't got Cummings job - that job was shared and Sharp has overall control - Ganson has been found a new role 

2. If I had posted on here earlier I would have been banned

3. He is due to make a statement


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

A man is getting along on the road of wisdom when he realises that his opinion is just an opinion
