NORTH WALES CRUSADERS CEO Andy Moulsdale has called on the Rugby Football League to review the decision of the last minute drop-goal awarded to Hunslet during Sunday’s match which had clearly fallen 3-4 feet beneath the bar.
The drop-goal meant that Hunslet came away with a 19-18 victory from the Queensway Stadium.
Moulsdale said: “We feel as a club that we owe it to the game as a whole, our fans and especially our players to call on the RFL to review the incident.
“The result has not only had an effect on ourselves but also on the race for the play-off places.
“I’ve been involved with rugby league a long time and I understand that referees have a very difficult job, certain decisions are open to interpretation and opinions and are they are never going to get everything right.
“However, what was witnessed on Sunday is not open to interpretation. People will argue that games are won on lost on calls every week which they are and always will be. But the magnitude of this incident is completely different in my opinion.
“This is in no way anything against Hunslet and their fans who where as bemused as us about the situation, but we have to protect our club and the game.”
