Put it like this - the person I have spoken to watched the Dvd last night - probably because results

affect jobs if you know what I mean - to quote:

Video ref:

1. Wipers try shouldn't have stood, Latus turned him over and stopped momentum…released a bit as the tackle was made and he rolled over to get up to play the ball and the vid ref was asked to look. Don't think he even touched the ground anyway.

2. There was no way Ian Smith could determine wether Flockhart was offside from the angles he had.

3. Freer, although the ball was partly stripped, still had it pinned between his elbow and his body, was still under control.

Pitch ref:

1st half - Latus was blatently held back off the ball when Flockhart made the break, but not seen,

right in front of Knights fans, should have been a penalty & possibly a sin-binning

I was also there to witness the knock-on in your winning try at your place....

Many neutrals disagree with what you have said. Im not going to counter with why I think you're wrong because I can be classed as just as bias as yourself.

To suit your own argument you have chosen the decisions which went against York. You also failed to mention, your first try where the full back was obstructed in getting the ball by the ref, in the second half your player went into touch yet we got penalised right after because the official failed to see his feet had touched the line and also the drop goal.

Decisions went either way. It's rugby league. Stop whining and enjoy the game.

I noted that during the commentary it was said by Henderson that the 3 second half disallowed tries that York had were

"The correct decisions"

Dave Wood confirmed that too.

Just finished watching the game.  

 

Great effort and wonderful entertainment.  The commentators loved it too.  

 

Push on boys, the season isn't finished yet.  

 

It can be done! :biggrin:

well done lads. stuck in right to hooter. build on this , imo apart from fev every team in this league can  be beat on the day if the team turns up and plays there game plan, what lies ahead is any ones game. take this performance into the next game which is at home and you will get a result. agree with liam Harrison back at centre. has such an impact and think hes marked out of the game at second row.

I think Fev can be beaten Im afraid as I have witnessed it first hand; You did something we couldn't do last night and that was beat York at York lol; (Fev fan)

Match reaction (and report linked in somewhere) from the York paper, here.

Gutted for York - not sure either team deserved to lose, especially in the way the Knights did. Not seen the footage but been led to believe video evidence was inconclusive on some of the calls, and the proverbial toss of the coin fell your way.

Still, great entertainment especially for the neutral. Keep that team fit and you'll stay up IMO. Harrison (as usual), Casey and Brennan stood out for me.

Feel there'll be more twists and turns yet in the play-off/relegation fight.
