I believe that relegation is based on percentages based upon wins losses and draws to number of games played, not number of points won to take account for cancellations because of covid.

True, but this might have been one of the games where you stand a chance of getting something out of it. If it were called off (unlikely) you could lose that opportunity.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

I still don’t understand why Reilly’s try at the death was called back. Can anyone enlighten me?

Gareth Hewer explained to the lads on the field that he'd shouted held.  At that point the Swinton player was deemed tackled — he then knocked on.

Quote

Laws of the Game

Losing possession – intentionally – accidentally 8. A tackled player shall not intentionally part with the  ball other than by bringing it into play in the  prescribed manner. If, after being tackled, he accidentally loses possession, a scrum shall be formed except after the fifth play-the-ball.

Stealing” from tackled player 9. Once a tackle has been completed, no player shall take or attempt to take the ball from the tackled player.

So that's that then.

I could reluctantly accept a double knock on but ‘held’?! It was pretty much lost on contact there’s no way that’s correct.

Hewer initially signaled play on as the ball was lost in contact and only blew up when the Swinton player looked seriously hurt which turned out to be cramp. This happened in a Hull game a few weeks back and Saints (?) scored & the try stood.

Yeah challenge Cup semi final the fages try

There is the famous Fijian Ratu family who all played for Rochdale Hornets.

Mike Ratu (1965) his son Mike Ratu (1980ish) and his son Mike Ratu (2012ish)

That sounds like the answer to a quiz question! If so, the question must've been 'Can you name 3 generations of the same family who played professionally for the same club?' OK Yeds fans, have we got any who did that? Oh and they all have to have the same first name too 🙂  🙂
