Last season, against Hull KR as it happens, a Fev player (Knowles I think) was over the line with the ball and could have scored, instead he set off to put the ball behind the sticks, and a Hull KR player came and knocked it out of his hand. And serve the Fev player right. Had he scored we'd have beaten Hull KR instead of drawing. That's taking a risk to improve the angle, what Shaul did was tantamount to cheating. But then his smirk when he got sinbinned for obstructing Briscoe says wall we need to know about him doesn't it?

Why are you obsessed about Shaul`s smirk?

Can i just make it clear, as I innocently believed it was incredibly clear before, that the defender has the responsibility of stopping the try scorer!

The Fev defender switched off. That doesn't mean he needs to bang every player going in to ground the ball. It means he shouldn't just stop to let him walk past: cover the space between the post and the player man! Just stand there at least! Don't walk past lazily and wonder why people have scored under the posts!

Unless it is actually cheating, and I've not seen this rule written anywhere...

Should never give up on the play until you see the ball dotted down, anything can and has happened, there was that classic one with Will Carling :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03gpzFZadcQ
If you study what your opposition do and don't give up you can not only save a try but smash the living daylights out of them with a glorious but legal blindside tackle. It certainly makes the opponent think twice about doing the same again.

What Shaul actually did was run the risk of not scoring by trying to improve the angle for the kicker. Featherstone's defender switched off, that was his fault.

I was at the Watersheddings about 25 years ago watching Hull play Oldham. There wasn't much between the two sides when Andy Dannatt crossed the line about 20m to the left of the posts. He tried to improve the angle and make it easier for the kicker by running towards the posts. Martin Crompton was in his way so Dannatt tried to knock him out of the way instead of putting the ball down when he had chance. Crompton jumped at him and clamped himself to Dannatt and when they fell on the floor, Crompton single handedly prevented Dannatt from scoring. I was absolutely furious with Dannatt as he'd almost certainly cost us the game.

However, he wasn't cheating, he was just being a dude.
