  1. Going back to the the semi with Tonga that try at the end was a 50/50 for me wigan had one disallowed at Wembley and the week after at saints they got one given to them when Ben barber lost the ball but got it back to score so for me they should of sent it up to the video reff see what he would of given and after the game Justin Holbrook of saints said it was no try but he was jumping around like a big kid when Ben barber scored against Wigan so there’s just no constants from coaches or reffs
