A few curveballs from Radford. 

Swift starts instead of Faraimo. Lane starts in the second row, Fonua is on the bench.

Hey, Sterlo's turned up! Mystery selection by Radford, perhaps?

Whatever the scheduled time is on sky there’ll always late by 3 or 4 minutes  for some reason

Indeed. The NRL consider a mere 3-4 minute delay as punctuality taken to OCD levels, though.

Have we changed the rules to something akin to American Football when it comes to scoring a try? No way on earth that Livett came even close to grounding that. Can’t decide what is more concerning, Hicks stood a yard away and sending it up as a try, or the video referee agreeing?!

Decent start to this game. Hull KR have looked good and that was a great effort by Livett - but still not sure he got it down.

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.

There’s obviously a broadcasting reason ( I’d guess ) , I just always find it a bit strange . You schedule a time so kick off on it . It doesn’t look good . They nail it in footy , certainly in Europe and internationals , and cricket to the second . But good if they sorted it just for perception at least

Weren't two tries disallowed last night because the ball was just held up?

Ironically by the same referee who has awarded the one tonight!

I think that’s the ‘ refs call ‘ nonsense coming to the fore again . If he’s handing to the VR he doesn’t know so why bind the hands of the VR ? Just let him decide or give what you see on the field . Refs call is unsatisfactory both ways

Can someone please explain the difference between Linnets try and Lomax’s last night. Both were sent up as a try, both looked like they may have been held up but the video evidence was inconclusive yet the video ref overturned one and not the other??The only difference I have seen is that the sky panelist’s made a big issue of tonight’s being inconclusive

I’m interested in watching SKD . He’s got a touch of the Konrad Hurrell’s in being hot n cold , but he could be a shrewd acquisition

To be honest I preferred the original VR use, where the VR had a look and made a decision on what he/she saw from the cameras.   I'd obviously prefer it at every game but we know that isn't going to happen yet.
