    .....the fact that the pass from Stewart to hicks to score our last try was a long way forward.

    For a site that is supposed to be "real" and not just follow the party line methinks a little unbiased observation may not go astray.

    mate it was well and truly forward, I wasnt complaining mind you.

    thats the problem with complaining about the refs, yes he got a heap wrong, which just makes him a sh!it ref, but not that he cost us the game.

    if you listen to Goulds explanation of the forward pass rule it was not forward.

    i was just going to say what Six said, its called inertia, it happens often when a bloke as fast as stewart throws a past, he passes it backwards, and remember backwards is only 1 degree beyond sideways, then because of inertia it floats forward.

    needless to say niether the touchy or the ref could keep up with hicks so **** them!

    the issue re the kick off is simply a rule issue, not open to interpretation.

    Sorry Pepsi, I know what you are saying but it doesnt apply in this case, it was a relatively short pass and was going nowhere but forward.

    Your second comment was a lot closer to the mark, they were too slow to keep up :)

    As I said earlier, he is just a crap ref. much like the majority of them, but there is nothing more sinister to it than that

    It is hard to tell. I actually skipped back on the recording to see it a couple of times and to be honest I don't think I could have said unless I was in line with the pass at the ground.

    Looks forward but is hard to tell wether it was momentum or deliberate.

    I have watched that pass on the telly and it was not forward. It was passed behind Stewart. Even Graham Murray didn't call it forward and said it was okay.
