Biggest double movement in 20 years



  • Missed the game, just saw the highlights.

    He so clearly advanced the ball it could never be a try. If it was any other team, it would have dominated the news and headlines, but nothing. Nothing at all.



  • It wasn’t a double movement.


  • Banned

    I thought it would be virtually impossible for a double movement due to the dead weight on top and hanging onto his legs. I can’t remember those defenders claiming a double movement. It was in the momentum.

    A bigger sin was when WT let that guy stretch over the line to score whilst two guys looked on contemplating their navels.



  • Really? He advances the ball after it touches the ground. It doesn’t move forward at the same pace as the rest of his body with the momentum, it reaches the line because he pushes his arm forward. Only the bunker saw it different, both on field ref’s said NO TRY.

    “An attacking player whose momentum does not allow the ball to reach the try-line or in-goal after their ball-carrying arm touches the ground may not reach out to score if a defender is in contact with them”

    If his arm carrying the ball stayed int he same position against his body, then it would not have reached the line with his momentum.

    And lets just say you still disagree (and its opinion, so thats OK), then why do all the 50-50 calls go against us….just like the forward pass in the first half for Capewells first try. I can live with 50-50, because they are exactly that, 50-50. Not 90-10 or 80-20.

    Doesn’t matter. The scoreboard shows the end result. I turned it of after the 50-50 double movement anwyay because it was then I knew what the result was meant to be.

    He definately advanced the ball.



  • Just try the Broncos test. Would such a try be allowed against them?



  • It looked like he advanced it but that’s because Brooks’ knees when they slide in behind his arm carrying the ball pushes it forward. I don’t think it was completely momentum but it definitely looks like Brooks as a result of sliding in to help the tackle has given it an extra push over the line.

    Good description…. You could make a case either way… 50/50… Certainly not the biggest is 2 decades
    But I was spewing last night



  • Brooks didn’t complete the tackle.

    Play on



  • Player wasnt held on the field so it is play on(as much as it hurt last night).



  • Brooks assisted the Try scorer by trying to rake the ball out .



  • I think everyone is talking about Capewell’s second try not Townsend’s.

  • Dunno how they could be confused



  • I was filthy about the forward pass to Edric Lee. A ball 3m forward resulting in a try shouldnt happen in the modern game.
