I think it was the Amphhill 1st try in the second half, a lineout near the south stand, the referee stops play before the ball is thrown in and warns the falcons about something. On resuming play the lineout is set again, referee gives a penalty against us, taken quickly and they score.
I take it that we ignored the referees warning and committed the same offence?
This 7 points and the interception pass in our 22 we were guilty of shooting ourselves in the foot at times.

There were 2 elements to it.

He asked the Falcons to come up to the line and maintain the gap
He also asked our Hooker to step to his right and into the gap.

They didnít
So he stopped play and told them to do it.

They didnít so he penalised us for it.

The ref and touch judges were excellent in their communications all game both between themselves and what they were telling the players.
