Did anybody who saw the match think the same as me, regarding the Sheffield winger being brought down just short of the line? In my opinion, it was a trip which nobody mentioned in the commentary box and I would have given a penalty try plus a sin binning for 10 minutes. Anybody agree that some old rules seem to be forgotten as long as everybody stands square when playing the ball and other unimportant rules?

I thought he over balanced going for the line. Did the London tackler shoulder charge him into touch?

No! he stuck his leg out without the use of his arms. He didn't trip him by the attackers feet, more like threw his leg under his body.

In the old rule book Gav u could grab a player and trip him but to just stick a leg out and trip should be a red card in my eyes , did'nt know it had been changed.................
