Child has had way too big an influence on this.

In a Widnes match there was a punch up and he had no problem sending people off the pitch. Briers punches a player straight out and he doesn't even get a yellow?

He is a terrible, terrible referee. It's no coincidence that his is the most niggly performance we've seen this weekend.

I'd say that was mainly down to the fact Leeds were playing

He's awful and the message has now been sent that there are no consequences for throwing a punch, which is completely contrary to how SL has been reffed the rest of the year.

Briers should have been sent off for not getting a cleaner contact on carl 'the grinning cockhelmet' Ablett.

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.

Sorry if I'm a little late with my comment here but who is Stuart (comical Ali) Cummings trying to kid with that forward pass from Watkins! Having stopped the picture at the point it leaves his hand and then again at the point it's caught, the ball travels approx 5m lateral and 5m forward. You would have to be travelling at ridiculous inhuman speeds for momentum to account for that.

It was a forward pass, end of!
No amount of warp or spin from the officials apologist changes that.

If anybody thinks he wouldn't have sent Hock off in the same situation needs their heads testing.

I'm just surprised that Sky showed the side angle, at this time of year they generally switch it off for Leeds tries. I like the NFL in Autumn, but I always thought quarterbacks wore helmets, not Rhino shirts.

Joking apart I thought it wasn't forward.

He passed it back, the position relative to the ground is irrelevant, it's the one to Sinfield you should question

I often watch Sky games without the sound and had forgotten how much Stevo disliked us.

For once we agree!

The officials are having way too big an influence on this game.
