Johnson touchline decision ... right call
Moore/Greenwood try ... wrong call - ball definitely travelled backwards NOT forwards
QLT/Taulapapa/crowd incident ... QLT chucked the ball into the crowd like we see every single week, Taulapapa is still a cock-end for offering on the crowd and hopefully the RFL saw that
Stringer ankle tap on Blacky ... matchwinner.

As my learned colleague, The Terminator, has pointed out many times before, it's amazing how as one-eyed fans we are often put right by watching a game in the cold light of day afterwards.

Not many Eddie. A very sad reflection on the success of Sheffield in the Championship. It is also disapointing that the council can't or won't help the club out more and that the RFL doesn't seem interested in helping to expand the game more in places like Donny and Sheffield. It could be that the Eagles fans are getting fed-up of finals?


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

Still can't agree with the Johnson decision, both his feet were off the ground when he touched the ball,therefore he wasn't out of play at point of contact. Does the fact that he had been in touch prior make any difference? Imagine that the ball was on the ground stationary, Johnson overruns it, steps out of play then back in play and picks up, play on, what's the difference? Til the cows come home springs to mind!!

Yes, he jumped from outside the field of play which means that the decision was the correct one.

Said it before but if your foot's in the air it's where you last made contact with the ground that matters.

Why should they ?  Hardly any of their voters go to games.
