    Default Exactly right

He's not there to create a spectacle, he's there to enforce fair play. Which he didn't. From the "no try" to the Wire scrum resulting in their try from a Grace "knock on" which didn't happen, to letting Wire encroach on the ten in most sets and upon Coote when he took the conversion. He probably would still've missed, but that's not the point, ENFORCE THE RULES! Disallowing the Wire try was so transparent in its attempt to "level things up" it was laughable.
    Spot on.

    At what speed was Hicks travelling after he disallowed the Knowles try?, he certainly looked like he would give Usain Bolt a run for his money.

    Peyroux 6 carries
    Knowles 4 carries
    LMS 8 carries
    Amor 6 carries
    Ashworth 2 carries
    Paulo 5 carries

    Knowles has an excuse as he's a tackling machine but the likes of Peyroux (who I've grown to like) should have been doing a lot more work
    Thatís disgraceful, Ashworth in partcular. Anyone know how long he was on for to only make 2 carries?

    Having same conversation on another thread, it is in the modern game and these stats are a sign of doing much. Lee defending than the opposition

    We made over 100 tackles more, the middles work very hard in defence

    Just read an article in the league express written by phil hodgson saying the stewards were great at wembley when a fight broke out in the west stand block 544?i was near this block and never heard or saw anything resembling trouble, i hope Mr hodgson is mistaken
