REALLY  I think the pass looking forward was something to do with the camera angle  the touchy was level with gareth and saw nothing wrong would have told ref if pass was forward  he didn't so nowt wrong with it

If it had been scored against us I would have been quite discounted.

Its easy to focus on the negatives on what was a fabulous game with a thoroughly astonishing end.  Been on my ###### a few weeks now..... it proper gave me a lift. I was (and still am) proper buzzing.

Yeah.... Kendall called early.... too early.... which drew a gob full.... which was daft. He wasn't held and again, it's clear from the vid he wasn't held..... but chelpin at the ref is only ever

ROBIN people getting upset over what they think they saw is nothing new  the touchjudge saw nothing wrong with it and that's all that matters got nothing to do with what tom dick or harry think🤣

Def onside for the kick. If I knew how I'd post the still Deano, I'd post the proof that kendall called it right. The still shows chiz stood next to kendall as the ball is being played.... then roll the vid.... he sets off like lightening and times his jump perfectly for the charge down.

Additional.

I've just posted the still on Facebook if anyone knows how to upload that onto here.

Thanks for that SK but the better team does not always win

Open the pic full in FB, copy the web address (usually right click to get copy option) and then use 'other media' drop down and 'insert image from url'

Ok. I’m clutching at straws looking for excuses. Obviously ref didn’t take them back 10 😁

  Don't think many Championship supporters would complain if Toulouse,Fev,or York got into S.L..IF Batley won the play offs i would love them to take the S.L. money and then tell them they are staying in the Championship.Could't happen of course but i can dream.

I thought that Fev made hard work of a game they should have won comfortably. When they played it simple York hardly got a sniff of our line, but silly penalties brought them near from which they scored their tries. Rovers were making far more yards with their plays but had far too many chances go to ground. Having said that Kirmond's tackle on Hall was top drawer and prevented an almost certain try of the highest class, and his poor pass to Cooper was because the tackle was totally unexpected. It also saved another two points because when Hall did score his try he went farther out than he needed to because he wanted to make sure this time.

Kopczak's effort was also a try, and I would have loved to see another angle of Moore's decision to pass rather than reach for the line, and whether he could have made it?

I disagree, no team is going to go to York and win comfortably. 

They have very good players throughout and well coached. They could easily have been celebrating a victory on Sunday and not us.

You are right of course....but I still maintain we were a good 2-3 scores better than York and as the score suggests.

A bit more composure and the drop goal was irrelevant. Barring one held up they never got a sniff in that second half and were unable to add to their points tally in almost the last hour.

We won that is it. A great game between two good sides. Players missing and points scored but lost but we still WON.

For those who are interested in this type of anorak stuff - and I know it isn't everyone - we outgained York by 950 yards to 760 in the first half despite having fewer sets than them, and despite their set restarts coming late in the tackle count (both ours came on the first tackle which isn't much help). Haven't had time to do the 2nd half.

As an aside, it's great to see match threads here regularly getting well over 5k views and often 100+ posts, I know lots of people have migrated to FB these days but I think it shows there's still a place for a more traditional forum like this.

I think your illuminating stats confirm the general impression. We have a dominant set of middles which provides real go-forward. Locky, Koppy & Bussey start, and the intensity does not drop when Davies, Moors, Harrison and Cooper take over.

Both hookers are greatly assisting this process of control and domination too.

I think what we need now is, having established a platform and field position, a few more tricks from the halfbacks and distributers to put running forward such as Day and Halton into holes, and give try scoring opportunities to our powerful, but not that speedy three-quarters. I'd like to see full-back a more attacking threat, both Hall and Chizzy are more than capable.
