    Amount of times he had obvious no trys go up is a joke...but this one didnt go, its mad

    It was an appalling decision, but then so was the disallowed Wire try from dummy half that was presumably done in a failed attempt to even up the crap decisions. The problem is that it doesn't work like that and in the ebb and flow of the game the first poor decision left you at an enormous disadvantage while the second barely had an impact on Wire as they were allready well in front.

    For the record, I doubt many of you would complain if you got a similar decision in your favour from Hicks in the GF vs Wigan, but there is as much chance of Bury winning the Champions League as there is of Hicks reffing the GF after that cock up.

    Do you think Holbrook asked Coote why he stone cold dropped a 100/100 catch?
    Why Makinson went for his diving put down when it's a run in try?
    Why a simple conversion was missed?
    Why Walmsley had lard on his fingers?
    It's easily explained why Hicks didn't go to the VR. It's because he was, in his eyes, 100% sure it wasn't grounded correctly. Turns out he was 100% wrong.

    Let's move on.
    Spot on

    I hope I’m able to be this level headed the next time we (Wire) lose a final.
