Shocking anti-climax of an ending. Is a draw really that bad? Still not convinced that golden point adds anything to the sport. Should only be used when needed in knockout games.

Again which begs the question - How can you have relegation when you are in a Division that you can draw a game and come away with nothing ? Its Rubbish. Golden point only works when the is no Re

Justice that, happy days. Can we play them every week?

Agreed. It was poor. One of the premier clubs in the country ought to be playing better rugby than that. 

Get us both our halves (and Myler at FB) in and we'll attack better hopefully.

Sutcliffe was a dead end at 6 tonight and Gale hasn't played in a month, the attack was stunted.

Missed kicks costly again.  Just part of Lino's shocking 1st half performance.

This world was never meant for one as beautiful as me.

Phil Clarke talks some doesn't he.

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 think our last tackle options were utter rubbish, but otherwise Leeds had the best of territory and possession.

Don't kid yourself Tommy, you're a really long way off and you know it.

I'm disillusioned with the whole competition to be honest. We all know Saints will win it and we're all bored with playing the same teams. It needs shaking up.

If they had played that under the new NRL directive Hicks would have to abandon it after 20mins through not having the required number of player's on the field which would have been for the best, a stinker of a game that nobody should be happy about.

Leeds were better individyal players, but did not play well.  If Wakey had avoided errors though they could have given themselves a chance.

I'm disillusioned with the competition, absolutely zero chance I'm putting any money in some club's coffers, but will still support my club. 

That said we were all over them for most of the game, it was played mostly in their half, but we couldn't string an cutting edge attacking passage of play together.

if england are relying on luke gale to take them to wc glory it may be better if the whole thing does get called off- in over 40 years of watching the game avidly from john atkinson to john bentley  this is the worst ever leeds team in my memory

Understandable with 3/4 teenagers in the 17 tbh. I've seen better players turn out worse *cough*2016*cough*

Maybe but Leeds will to need improve massively from tonight - clunkingly scraping past a winless Wakefield in extra time - to make the playoffs.

Of course they will, and most people will hope the performances improve when injured players return

Don’t think Gale will be picked, Johnny. George Williams and Jonny Lomax, I suspect.

thats just the problem- pinning hopes on a journeyman player who has never really been that good like myler - thats where we are as a game today!

They won the challenge cup last year.  Gale has been out for 4 weeks.  Wakey were stretched and made errors they could not afford.

Your memory has forgotten the 1986 and 1996 teams clearly.

That's the first time I've ever seen a referee give a penalty in golden point extra time. For anything.

Very tough for Wakey to lose the game on a 50/50 decision. Once again a team fight so hard get a draw and are denied anything because of golden point.

Both teams defended well and probably the only good part of Leeds performance was how they kept Wakefield in their own 20 thus getting the better of field position. They didn't do much with it though and Wakefield defended so well for so long.

Wakefield deserved a draw at least and for me it is wrong that they get nothing from the game.

If ever a draw was a fitting result it was this game. Both teams gave so much effort.

The general concensus was that it was decided by a referee's 50-50 decision. 

My own view is that if it is a decision that effectively decides the game, the referee has to be over 90% sure before giving it. Especially if it isn't foul play.

Otherwise, the ending becomes such an anti-climax.
