To me it was so predictable. When it was 12-20 to Fax and the penalty count was 3-8 in their favour after 7 consecutive penalties to them, I said to my friend "You watch....The ref will even up the penalty count and Fev will get back into the game!". Lo and behold the count ended up at 8 each! I could have made a fortune on in-play betting!
But its no joke: last week at Dewsbury, Fev had a massive penalty advantage in the first half, and full credit to the Rams for keeping us out, but the penalties started going the other way in the second half. Was this genuine, or a subconscious attempt to even up the penalty count?
What could happen this season is that heavily beaten sides might be allowed back in the game to even things up to such an extent that they snatch a bonus point, which could decide their league position and how much cash they get next year!
we were saying the same, he will start to even up the penalty count and hopefully we will do something. penalties played a huge part on sunday.
