    A classic example of why people get it wrong. The passer is tackled and stopped dead just after passing (but not illegally late) so the ball is clearly in front of him - which is NOT the correct criterion to use. (I don't think the ball even travels forward over the ground, which is the other main source of error.)
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    I'm not even sure that it's a momentum issue.

    The ball clearly went backwards out of the hands before moving forwards. That's simply a bad call.

    Ball clearly went backward - look at the direction of the hands in the initial live run. looks an even worse call in slow motion.

    Is this outside the TMO protocol for league? A match-changing decision must surely be worthy of review...
    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you... you must be a rugby referee!
