Rohan Smith says disallowed Leeds try could have been given

Rohan Smith

When Leeds Rhinos look back at their defeat to St Helens, they will think about a number of key moments.

They will think back to their three injuries, the red card to James McDonnell and the likes of Rhyse Martin’s missed attempt at goal from 45 metres out.

They also had two tries disallowed for Sam Walters and Justin Sangare that could have been enough to clinch the game for Leeds.

Both were unlucky, maybe harsh, but within the letter of the law the right calls.

When asked about this after the game, Rohan Smith agreed but acknowledged that if the Walters try had been sent to the video referee as a try then it would have been given.

“Yeah, I think the Sam Walters one probably looks like it,” Smith said when asked if he felt the decisions were harsh or unlucky.

“There’s a bit of grass between the ball and the line, but if it goes up as a try, I don’t think there’s enough probably to overturn it.

“But I felt like that decision was right, and I’m pretty sure Paasi touched the ball when Justin juggled it so I think both those big moments without having you know looked at it over and over appear to have been correctly dealt with.”
