Hull FC awarded highly controversial try in fiery Castleford Tigers affair

Hull FC have been awarded a seriously controversial try in their fixture with Castleford Tigers tonight.

Jake Connor chipped over the top for Darnell McIntosh who believed he had scored before the ball hit the dead ball line.

However, referee Chris Kendall sent it up as no try before Liam Moore inexplicably awarded the try despite there being no clear evidence to overturn the original decision.

This is how both sides lined up:
