Chuffed with how the series has gone. We had a mate in that WC semi and everything that went before was forgotten but it had been so enjoyable until that point. Glad we’ve got back on track this last few weeks.

Great and deserved try for not giving up.

With Halloween coming up I decided to go to my local fancy dress shop to see if I could get a Dracula costume. After a few minutes the assistant handed me a Hull KR shirt asking "Is this suitable?", I replied "I think you may have misheard me, I said I wanted to look like a count."

Decent try to get Tonga off the nil.

At least they weren't nilled, unlike some international teams we could mention.

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.

So what's the rules on that disallowed try? The video ref was saying something about it slipping out/off the hand and down the wrist/arm. I could tell he was going to give No Try, based on what he was saying.

Either way, Whitehead will be gutted not to have made a cleaner job of grounding it.

The rules were that the video ref, under the current system, largely exists to confirm whatever the on-field ref gave.

The technical reason is that there was separation between ball and hand and Whitehead didn't regain control of the ball.

Unless the rules have changed, it was a try as far as I'm concerned.

His hand and arm were always in contact with the ball so he never lost contact with it.
