  1. I know that’s technically correct, but in practice in our sport if you lose control forwards being able to bat it back just before it hits the ground is still called as a knock-on 99 times out of a hundred. The ball carrier has a responsibility to secure the ball. Either way, nobody can tell me Gaskell isn’t a cheat and the video ref isn’t a disgrace for ruling that Linnet try out. Unbelievable behaviour
  2. Good shout, had missed those and well worth a watch
  3. Nowhere near comparable. One was a strip missed by the red, happens all the time, others were basically re-writing the rules - and in slow motion from several angles, so hardly a split-second human error Everyone else watching the game saw the difference. It’s also about timing and momentum - the entire direction of the game changed with the 2-score swing that resulted from SKD’s natural collision in the legitimate pursuit of the ball being called a foul, wiping off Linnet’s try, and the immediate score from Giants from a possession position they wouldn’t have had. The match was t
  4. I agree that was a strip. But there had already been an 18 point swing supplied by Gaskell by then, perhaps even 24 if you include SKD being tackled in the air but apparently a non-issue, so should have been an irrelevant moment really eh
  5. I agree, but to be honest I think someone needs to call tonight’s decisions out - but like you say better done in a letter or behind closed doors
  6. Must just be an eyesight rather than an insight issue then, fair enough. You can get equipment to help with that
  7. Surely SKD held McGilvary back there like the last time? If it’d been sent up that’s absolutely what Kendall would have given
  8. Have you ever played the game, or even seen another match? A fumbled possession when moving forwards is a knock on, even if you manage to knock it backwards before it hits the ground. It’s the responsibility of the ball carrier to hold the ball
  9. That ‘no try’ is a disgrace. Where could SKD go? He’s looking at the bloody ball not than man. Gaskell was in the way ffs. Benefit of the doubt (not that there is any) should be with the attacker. ...and then you get a 12 point reversal. Disgusting, but not surprising. Time and time again.
  10. ^^ This Broncos, like almost every club at this level, are reliant upon a benefactor paying the bills. Why the RFL have randomly decided only the irritatingly far-from-Leeds Mr Hughes should have to do X, Y and Z out of some sort of magical beneficence and not expect the same of his peers is a mystery to me. But makes perfect sense to everyone else apparently. The logical dividing line for travel and other comp structure decisions in a pandemic is by league level, not by wage structure. Anything else we expect full time teams to do? If we’d had this sort of discretion
  11. Cool, as could London. In a fairly run comp. But apparently they are judged by different criteria, because, er, well just because
