On game analyser you can hear the commentators talking up the player responses, at the game it looked like both teams thought it was no-try, I think that behind the goals angle is deceptive, guess it was 50/50 but it felt like we lost all the 50/50 calls

I thought it was no try, but that didn't cost us the game, that was due to our extremely poor attitude and decision making ability in defence.

I think benefit of the doubt should go with what you are trying to see. For example, if you think he hasn't scored and can't see an angle where he has, you call it no-try. If you think he has scored and you can't get a definite option on an error, its a try. This benefit of doubt going to one side has given and will continue to given stupid results. It needs to be more flexible. If you have no opinion based on evidence, its a no-try.

Exactly as i saw it, no evidence the ball touched the line especially at the angle shown.

Thats normal though Tiger4ever . There was only going to be two logical conclusions . Try or play the ball on the 10 metre line . No use running 90 metres down field have it ruled no try and then come all the way back

I thought it was close enough to give it as benefit of the doubt. Did they only have 2 camera angles to judge it on? One was absolutely useless and the other was inconclusive. A higher angle looking down may have shown it clearly...
