Watched the Catalan V Hull KR game yesterday and witnessed 2 tries disallowed for Catalan which were legitimate and one try awarded to KR which was dubious. London Broncos have already compiled stats which confirm that London and Catalan don't get the rub of the green with regards to refereeing decisions.

 

Now where is the apology furore, uproar and apology to Catalan for wrong video ref call?

Has anyone seen a statement from Neil Hudgell criticising the referees performance yesterday? Maybe I missed it.

 

Now someone tell me why should Hull KR get an apology from the RFL and other clubs not, are they more important? Or is this another example of bias towards the northern teams.

Tend to agree. If the Dragons have any sense, they'll kick up a fuss and make sure they get their ledger settled by the end of the season.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Whilst I have some sympathy with the OP, stats simply do not tell whether a side has the "rub of the green" or not.

 

They may show that one side has been awarded more penalties than their opponents but that penalty count may well be justified.

 

If it happens week in week out, then a side needs to take a look at their indiscipline.

 

Catalans certainly seem to play a more robust game than I normally witness in SL so perhaps this is the root of it. May explain while there was two or three sets of "handbags" early on in yesterday's game. Can't speak for London much as I've not seen a great deal of them recently.

 

I certainly don't think it can be argued that the chairman and coach of our friends over in East Hull have a tendency to grumble a fair bit more than their peers, of that there is surely little doubt.

I tend to agree with the OP.

 

Just because one wrong decision was more blatant that another shouldn't dictate whether an apology is forthcoming.

Just noticed this quote from South Wakefield Sharks on the Wakey v London thread....

 

"London were shocking. Gave us loads of penalties."

There are many controversial decisions in the game every week, and you always  get fans arguing either way on them. The Ganson  decision was just a joke , and as i remember he said he wasn't even watching the right player.

I assume  these decisions we are now referring too the Video ref was watching the correct footage, If there was a apology for every wrong decision, they would be endless. The HKR one was so bad it was a joke, i have only seen one as bad before , funnily enough it was by Ganson  at Cardiff, assisted by a certain Mr Kline, What a team they were.

I never understood what there was to apologise about in the first place.

Clearly another error of judgement from him then.
