    Ok.... Bit of pissing in the wind here...

    Wolfie's no try in the corner. The reason he didn't score was the result of an illegal (and penalized) shoulder charge from Inglis.

    Why not a penalty try?? Anyone??

    (Grasping at straws, and I've had lotsa stillnox cos I gotta be at work in 4 hours so thought process a little off kilter)

    But technically it's an illegal tackle used to prevent a try... Does this not equal a penalty try??

    Has to be no doubt that he would have scored had he not been fouled. He never had full control of the ball so cant say for sure he would have scored

    That was a dead set try! Disgraceful decision!

    Under no circumstances will a penalty try be awarded for a shoulder charge

    The refs have been told that
