Certainly a better performance but I can't help but think we're 1 or 2 errors from losing. Probably an intercept try and then we try and play loose and continually cough up the ball

Appalling ref, both sides all off their feet at the breakdown. Making it really messy

Would of given that as a try, need to be a bit more positive in those 50/50 calls. At least it was quick decision though

I think it certainly warranted a closer look as to me it looked like it shaved the line
