still remember that ball rolling along the studio floor and carrying on as if nothing had happened. Priceless

Probably just come out of the oven and was too hot to handle.

Is it because of the houses behind that Leeds wouldn't get planning permission for the western Terrace? If so would it make any difference if the club tried to buy them all up and lease them out to private tenants, probably making a small profit as landlords? Same might go for Belle Vue if Wakefield wanted to stay there and upgrade?
It might take years if they had to wait for them to come up for sale though, so might not be worth it.

It becomes even more unfair in a golden point situation where an attempted field goal is charged down. The defending side has no option but to attempt the charge down, but if they manage to do this they often get penalised with another set against them, which will probably kill them off, while their opponents are rewarded for a poor kick.

Only the teams who finished in bottom 4 last season come in

Irwin didnt score either will sharp scored twice

Very professional performance in 2nd half bouyed by a "very fortunate to be awarded try" - if its given at POR we all go bananas at the ref but it was a bit of luck we perhaps deserve after the last few weeks

Some good lines run by the players today and some good tries scored

Blackmore had a good game today after a period on the sidelines sykes some decent kicking and a better game at 6 jy good game at centre usual good contributions from the forward pack

Haven look a poor outfit though and got little from the ref despite appealing for things all game

I also think it was Sharp who scored the disputed try- the ball appeared to go loose and it looked like Sharp picked it up and planted it on the whitewash. He was also the one being congratulated by his team mates. It would be nice to hear from the club who the try was awarded to?
