No, the law states you should not be within ten meters if you are off-side at the kick, it doesn't mention direction of travel, forward, backward or upward.

That was a mad decision, Swift lost that on the way down. Should have been a Saints try.

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.

No, which bit of off-side when the ball is kicked and within 10m is so hard to understand. There are no provisos.

It’s still a ridiculous interpretation . He looked hard enough for it . How can I disallow this seems the starting point

It's a ridiculous rule, anywhere else on the pitch if a player runs a dummy run and passes through untouched he's not involved, yet at a kick he automatically is, not even open to interpretation. Makes no sense at all.

What a rotten performance from Hull. After 25 years of disappointment you'd think I'd have learned by now to temper my expectations. It's the hope that kills you.

You should try being a Salford fan for over 50 years!

It is looking at what happened and applying the law. Refs/Video refs do not set out with an agenda.

I'm relieved it's only this scoreline.

If we don't wake up, it's gonna be 60 at least. We look tired. We're making unforced errors, poor defensive reads and unable to commit to tackles the way we have been.

Saints look full of energy and ready to turn the screw on every opportunity. Any gap or error they are straight up on and breaking our line at ease.

I think Hull are too well drilled in defence to be "put to the sword" and Saints aren't the most exciting attacking side either. I think it will be a low scoring grind. Saints by 8.

Take that law away and just watch what happens, I have seen what happens and you will not like it.

We have all seen it happen, in the many rugby matches that are not on Sky. If that is scored on a Sunday afternoon, it never even occurs to the ref that there is a man stood offside completely out of the way of play.

Is our defence that poor or Saints attack that good?

One-way traffic and should be more than it is.

Saints showing what a flat track bully they can be.  Hull just allowed Saints to walk over them.

I don't want it taken away, I want it changed so it can be reviewed rather than the current farce that doesn't take situation or circumstances onto consideration.

Doesn't matter, the refs use what they can see, with a video ref they can see more, with an in goal ref they can see more. You use what you have available, get the decision right using all you can to get the decision.

Do we stop asking linesmen an opinion because they interfere with what fans think is a decision that goes against them.

Don't forget video refs also give tries.

Worse than that, we've all seen it happen on sky matches where its not even looked at, tries are given.
