LIVE: Tactical gamble dividing rugby league
Very interesting moment here – the ball goes to ground via a Jarrod Wallace offload and hits the hand of Reed Mahoney before it’s cleaned up. It looks like a knock on but the referee waves play on.
Instead, the Titans intentionally give a penalty away so that the game can stop and they challenge – which they win!
“If this comes back unsuccessful, you will be going to the sin bin,” referee Peter Gough told Toby Sexton.
“It’s very dangerous, it’s very risky, but it’s smart to have the presence of mind,” Andrew Voss said on commentary.
From the restart the Titans score their opening try via Philip Sami, so the gamble certainly paid off – but this issue will no doubt be talked about during the week.
