Wow! Some interesting views.

What an incredibly courageous thing to do. The inner turmoil he has had to struggle with, and the consequential effect it will have had on those around him must have been horrendous.

What this does make me realise, that we, society, have a long way to go.

To be fair mate I was bracing myself for the backlash as I pressed the post button :D seriously though I really didn't see how it hit ablett's hand.


I think the term inconclusive is applicable in this instance. I saw nothing to overturn Childs' decision.

I'm not sure I agree with that, it seemed quite clear that the ball didn't touch his hands. That being said, for me I always thought if the ball hit the body above the waist it was a knock on, although Cummings said otherwise so I assume I'm wrong. Assuming it isn't a knock on off the body I don't really see the problem with it being a try.


I think you may be in a minority, perhaps no greater than one, to deem that quite clear.

Good game for the viewing public.

As good as Saints resilience was, the game management by Leeds was outstanding. I am struggling to recall a better performance by any side than that of Leeds' in the first half. The fact Saints went in so close is incredible testimony to them.
