“That is a shocker” – Barrie McDermott blasts bombed try

There has been a lot to talk about on Leigh Leopards’ clash with Wakefield Trinity.

The red card was the main talking point and on Sky Sports Danny Brough had this to say on the matter:

“David Fifita has come on and his job is to get under people’s skin and he has certainly done that.

“I think if you are going to throw a punch these days, you have to smash them and make it count.

“He has cost his team there.”

Barrie McDermott then added:

“You can’t throw a punch in today’s game. I don’t know what he was trying to do when he went in there late. You said it was a flop, it was like he was trying to instigate a bit of trouble.”

McDermott was critical of Reynolds there but was more critical of Tom Lineham.

The Wakefield winger seemed set for a crucial try just before halftime that looked set to breath life into the game as contest but dropped the ball.

McDermott said: “That is a shocker. That’s his job to put the ball down there. You have to do better there.”
