Fages done nowt wrong for me. Griffin should have held onto that ball even if his leg was hanging off. Hull fans don’t like it but I’m sure any Hull player on the pitch would have done exactly same as Fages did.

I dint see owt wrong with it.
Ball was live.
Farges didn’t know how bad the injury was, he was in the zone.
And he played to the whistle.

Nothing wrong with it. Any of us that have played would have picked that ball up - play on till ref whistle goes. If it had been us we’d have claimed the try

Also it’s the refs responsibility, he should have blow straight away.
He’s the one who played on.
Farges isn’t there to ref the game.

Correct OCL - always play to the refs whistle. Fages did nothing wrong

Got no problem with it. Griffin needed to keep hold of if no matter how bad the injury was.

Whil Fages did nothing wrong, it doesn't sit right with me that the moral aspect of it didn't see Saints let Hull score at the other end like you often see in football.

IMO that is a negative from Saints, no matter the importance of the game. Only right if the ref doesn't have the stones to blow his whistle or bend the rules.

tricky one. i get the "play to the whistle bit" but i'm assuming griffin screamed in pain as some other saints players ran to the stricken griffin. maybe thats why the hull players stopped.

Let’s imagine that his Achilles snaps so he stops and passes the ball to a teammate who scores a try. Would it start a debate?

It's drilled into you as a youngster to play to the refs whistle, no problem from me.

Nothing wrong with the try you've got to play to the whistle , the ref should have blown for me . But if Cas had been in that position picked the ball up and waved the physio's on I would have swelled with pride . Sometimes player welfare comes first which I may add all the rest of St Helens players did stop and were concerned for Josh which was nice to see .

Totally wrong for me. It wasn't in the best interest if the game. Yeah I get all the rule bookers, play to the whistle etc etc but to benefit from an individual obviously in extreme agony was wrong. Even in football , if a player goes down the opposition kick the ball out . Unless your leeds utd against villa 2019 lol. I know we all have our opinions and I respect every one of them. Just not for me I'm afraid.

Thank god we arnt football derbys.
Imo it was down to the ref to stop the game.
Soon as Griffin dropped the ball the whistle should have gone.
Saying that it happened so quick.
Farges won’t of realised what was happening, he just saw the ball picked it up and scored. Absolutely nothing wrong with that.

If anyone’s to blame it’s the ref.
