We've all been there. Supporting your team can hurt at times, but you have to take the rough with the smooth.

There are plenty of times I've felt that the officials got it wrong, but that's part and parcel of the game. Taking out the incident in question, Chester kept plugging away and did not give up. Ultimately, that never-say-die attitude brought home the win against a dogged Wharfedale side that just didn't give up.

I don't normally get involved when close games and controversial decisions meet, but I feel like I have to defend my team in this instance. If what I saw was wrong - which in the heat of the moment could be true - then I'll be the first to hold my hands up, but when all the shouting is over the history books will show a Cheater victory.

Take it on the chin and move on to the next game.

And in reply to greenpower - I couldn't agree more. All sides go through tough results like this, you just have to take the rough with the smooth.

DD, don't worry, I have plenty of chins to take it on. Don't get me wrong, it was not a dig at Chester, and officials do make mistakes, but......
Hare Lane is a great place to visit, perhaps a little over the top on elf n safety, but fab facilty, great atmosphere and very friendly folk.
I'll miss you when we go up

I didn't make it to Chester so I have no first-hand knowledge of the incident. However I find it disappointing that Chester's report in the Rugby Paper failed to mention the disallowed try, which was possibly a swing of four league points and therefore the pivotal moment of the match.

Here is what actually happened:

From a ruck on the Chester 22, Wharfedale scrum half Phil Woodhead ran with the ball. He spotted a gap inside 10 and sprinted through it to score, virtually unopposed under the posts. Before he touched down the referee thought the he had impeded a Chester player from attempting to tackle Woodhead and he blew up before Woodhead dottted down and he awarded a scrum to Wharfedale about 15m out.

He realises he has made a mistake and that there was no Chester player anywhere near, but has blown prior to the touchdown and thus has to stick by his decision.

No one could argue that the young ref, only 24 I believe, had refereed the game badly, on tbe contrary, he produced a fair match, hugely exciting, free flowing, played in an excellent spirit, and he should not be judged on one error.

What is even more impressive is that this young man admitted his mistake, apologised personally to the Wharfedale coaches and players afterwards. That takes some cahoonas to do.

He strikes me as a young man with a good future in our game.

No sour grapes or bitterness in the calm of a lovely Sunday morning. We move on to next week

There was a similar incident in the 3rd France v All Blacks test.
