Evident only to you, and the other nutter conspiracy theorists.

Complaining about poor or inconsistent refereeing is one thing. Accusing refs of being biased against particular clubs is quite another.

100% agree there was a double movement for Sarge's try. Definitely a case of trying to even things up after dropping a bollock in the first half. The problem is in the context of where the match is at the time as the two dodgy decisions don't necessarily cancel each other out
I was just going to make the very same point. It's no use at the end of game saying two bad decisions have evened themselves out. When a team is awarded a score or disallowed a score it affects the way both they and the opposition play at that point in time. The players aren't robots have having perfectly good tries ruled out is bound to affect them and spur the opposition on.

I agree with whoever said the officials are over officiating. There was a try from London at the DW the other week that only looked like a try when played in slow motion from one view when from the other it was pretty clear he had not scored. In an attempt be scrupulous the officials seem to manage to convince themselves black is white.

Completely agree with you,some of the tinfoil merchants here and on Facebook make me laugh,there’s a word of difference between supposed vendetta or them being bent,of you can prove submit to the police and let the dice roll where they may.

Now as you inconsistent and poor refs then yes a sensible discussion can be had as they ain’t perfect and some aren’t up to the task.

Shaun Wane says Robert Hicks was RIGHT to rule out Wigan Warriors' try

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

All that article is, is a series of quotes from him saying "the ref followed the rules" without explaining why he thinks this is so. The other experts have given their opinions as why they think the decision was wrong given the rules and it isn't because they do not know the rules. They do. Wane is implying all the other experts don't know the rules and he does.

Nope!

I always thought Wane never knew when to shut up and because of this if an interview went on long enough he'd say something stupid or controversial that wasn't thought through. This is just another example.
