    Default Bath v Leicester. Jamie Roberts Try - Double movement ?

    For me it was clear and obvious double movement. He was tackled about 4 metres short of the line then uses his legs to crawl forward and place the ball on the white-line.
    What amazes me is that , even after awarding the try, JP Doyle sees the reply on the screen and say "Hang on a minute !", but still awards the try.
    Am I alone in my view ?

    It certainly wasn’t immediately placed, I wouldn’t have allowed that. Don’t think JP is having his best day, however unwittingly I think he has righted an earlier wrong so try karma!

    Always a dangerous road to go down if he was trying to rebalance things. Another error should not cancel out the first. We all make mistakes, best not to make things worse by using another error to try and establish balance in the Force.

    I don’t think he was, deliberately, but the end result was ‘correct’ in that one try should be disallowed and another given, just he did it the other way round to me!
