Was that really a try? It might have been but How could Shayne Hayne see?

This is a better game than the Eng-Aus match already.

 

In what way?

Decent game and plenty of people have stayed. Just the usual prob with double headers, too many neutrals, too much beer drunk, dimwits Mexican wave. - still the welsh boys seemed to find being at the millennium to be special so on balance the right decision

Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

14-12 Italy HT. Decent enough game

Technically when the Italian players hand brushes the ground with a welsh player on him is that not tackle complete.

Wales really needed someone to keep hold of the ball. They didn't have one. They played with heart and I enjoyed the game, but disappointed with the result.

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.

Yes, but for me the Welsh player was not on him until he'd passed the ball. I thought he'd knocked on but apparently not, 50/50 IMO

I would say not because the Italian player was no longer 'grounded'.

I thought the side view proved it wasn't a knock on.

The ball carrying arm was on the ground and the Welsh player had hold of him. Does it matter if the Italian was on his feet? Also, as Noble pointed out, there was an Italian player offside.

 

I also thought the earlier try was unlucky because White had his hand under the ball so it wasn't grounded. 

 

A couple of dodgy calls for mine, and I'm peed off to see a genuine nation lose out to an utterly fake one. But there you go.

I think it does matter that the Italian player was on his feet. Without poring over the laws of the game I'm pretty sure that simply putting your hand on an opponent to complete the tackle only relates to a player who is lying on the ground.

Gutted about the result, but we showed some heart and our anthem was incredible. Those things don't win games however!

Anybody got some half backs we can borrow?

Yes but if the ball carrying arm is on the ground and the defender has touch then it's a  tackle. No?

As I understand it, only if the ball carrier is lying on the ground. If he regains his feet the defender has to effect a tackle in the normal manner.

 

Correct interpretation by the VR (I think).

 

Edit: I do see where you're coming from. I just think it's come down to interpretation in the end.

Well tried boys. We  defended like demons but didn't have much creativity in attack. I think we'd have won if Lee Briers had made himself available. All we can do is move on and, seeing as we don't have much maverick, we'll just have to  work on a better offload game.

 

I thought Peter Lupton made a big improvement off the bench and should be the starting hooker.

 

Matt Seamark, Ian Webster and Neal Budworth looked, understandably,  a bit off the pace and I'd only have (at most) two of them in the 17 for the next game. I'd give Christiaan Roets or Rob Massam a go.
