Re: Kris Radlinski calls for changes after controversial 'no try' for Wigan Warriors

The ball knocked forward. Thrown forward in the circumstances you refer to and recaught would be a knock on. See Glossery of terms. To avoid the difficulty envisaged with the drop kick. A punt would avoid that difficulty so long as the ball is dropped on the foot vertically and kicked before hitting...

Re: Kris Radlinski calls for changes after controversial 'no try' for Wigan Warriors

But if you follow the rules to the letter isnt a drop kick a knock on? good point WF. The rule I referred to say if the ball is k. o'd accidentally and is kicked before the ball touches the ground or post or bar then it's play on.

Re: Bent refs

The vr seems to try to find a reason to disallow a try. They should only be allowed to watch in real time rather than slo mo and I think this would solve a few but not all issues. Agree. Ps "over officiate" the use of over in the function of "over" in this expression is otiose ie idle. Just saying👍

Re: Bent refs

Can someone explain "over officiate The refs job is to ensure the rules of the game are enforced. So I agree with SE F. Hicks should explain what rule Tommy infringed. I doubt he can. I also agree with K R's comments. If your going to make a cock up do it on National TV. Why don't you. I for one wil...

Yes, much better all around. Great effort by all of the lads, just a shame about a few individual errors. Best performance of the season? Now let's see if we can maintain this for the next few weeks before we decide that Lammy is the messiah.
