I did reply this on the Hull / Featherstone thread but is deserving of it's own thread as it is not relative to just that match, more the game in general.

It is going to pot. Two observations from last night's match, but this season, both in SL and in our matches, has been littered with similar incidents. Cheating, diving, simulation, feigning injury etc etc

A Featherstone player last night was hit fair and square across the chest, but whipped his head back in the tackle as if simulating it had almost been knocked off, 'winning' a pressure relieving penalty.

This just 5 min after young Jake Connor, was 'brushed' and I do mean brushed across the the top of his hair, ref waved play on... Connor looks at him bewildered, and then drops to the ground 'holding' his head.

Head Injury: Referee has no option only to stop the game, Video ref gets involved, Slow Mo replay to almost stand still, hand clearly in Connor's hair.... Penalty to Hull.

Joke Shop.

The Video Ref should be scrapped, it is having more impact on the game than it should. It is allowing referees to absolve themselves of any responsibility for decision making.

Connor is a total gobbin, wind up merchant and cheat.
