Kyle Amor blames Leeds for try rather than controversial rule

The Six Again rule has been making headlines recently especially Phil Clarke accused Champions St Helens of “effectively cheating” by using the rule to slow Huddersfield Giants down on Thursday night.

Today at Headingley we have seen another draw back of the rule.

Catalans Dragons gave away a six again near the Rhinos tryline. It is important to note that a Six Again was previously considered a penalty so it is something to be punished not rewarded.

However, this favoured the Dragons here.

They were able to set their line up and get ready to try and force a goal line drop out.

That’s exactly what they tried to do with Rhyse Martin hit hard and swarmed by defence.

He tried to smuggle the ball away and it was picked up by the Dragons, though there was a suspicion of a knock on though ruled backwards, and the Dragons scored.

However, on Channel 4 Mark Wilson and Kyle Amor felt that the fault lay with Leeds rather than the Six Again rule.

Wilson said:

“Headingley are not happy, Leeds under pressure on their own line and they are shell shocked right before the break.

“It’s not like football where you can score an own goal but this is as close to an own try as you’re going to get.

“He just has to take the tackle.

Amor added:

“The reason I say that they are tough carries is because you have to just take your medicine.

“Paul Seguier won’t score an easier one than that and it is more concern for Leeds.

“They are conceding far too many tries given where they were last year.

“It is a super high risk play.”
