Great try. That cheeky little inside ball again, hardaker did well to finish it too

Hardaker did what Watkins should have done earlier.

This could run away from us now.

See I don't get this, they're saying it has to hit the hands for it to be a knock on but didn't we have a thing were if you head it forward its a knock on, even though it used yo be fine?

That's a knock on !! For 100 years every Sunday that's a knock on . Ridiculous if we are scrutinising to that degree . That's an error , end of

That's a stupid rule.

A knock on should be ruled as an attempt to catch the ball with your hands and you make contact with the ball and it then hits the ground.

I've backed Leeds -10 and I'm annoyed so it must be a shocking decision.

In the NRL i suspect that would be declined. I suggest we scrap the giving decision thing to the vr. In oz they are rarely overturned, here it is usually a couple of times per game.

Of course it should . An error is an error . He tried to catch the ball and dropped it ! Again we see the difference of a video ref game and the lack

of common sense that brings .

you cant conclusively prove ablett didnt touch it with his hand

so no try

indeed, this 'conclusive' thing just isnt being adhered to. Im ok with that, but go back to last years process instead of following the Aussies with this pointless 'improvement'.

Pretty embarrassed for the game here. After Hardaker screaming like a little ##### and refusing to play the ball until Child penalised us, we see that nonsense which would be pulled back for a knockon in any non-Sky game. And rightly, because it was a knockon.

Leeds are clearly bigger and stronger than us but I don't see why it's in the game's interests to give them every decision too. They produced two or three passes that were far further forward than the one that Child was so desperate to ping us for.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

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.

We can't cope with Leeds' ability to play off the cuff rugby. They remind me of the Kiwis, fair play to them they deserve to be in front.

Our tactics have been poor, kicking away posession has allowed Leeds to run at us and our forwards couldnt contain KR, never mind Leeds.

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

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.

The only knock on was by Evans

The video was conclusive

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

Any reason why Leeds can't be arsed to come back out for the second half?

Still, gives more time for the foul-mouthed #### in the South Stand to sing their hilarious song.

how many times have we watched something from one angle look ok and then another angle makes it look different? Loads. The angle that suggested Ablett didnt touch it was from the side, that wasnt 100% conclusive, which is what it HAS to be to overrule the ref.

This could be an amazing half, for different reasons!
