Saints fans have taken to Twittersphere to poke fun at the controversial referring decision to award Ryan Hall’s match-winning try against Leeds.

Despite not appearing to place any downward pressure on the ball as it crossed the whitewash, Hall was given the last-gasp winner.

But despite taken umbrage at what they saw as a referring mistake costing Saints the chance to defend their Super League crown at Old Trafford on Friday against Wigan Warrirors, many fans were able to remain philosophical.

Creating the amusing hashtag #ThingsWithTheSameDownwardPressureAsRyanHall, they posted a number of photos in a sarcastic jibe.

Disgruntled Saints fans were quick to vent their fury with their hashtag.

User @Gaskell_91 tweeted a photo of his fingers hovering over his guitar with the words “Can’t seem to play a single not on my bass today..? #thingswiththesamedownwardpressureasRyanHall”

He also took a picture of a loosely fitted plug and added: “Looks like my phone will be running out of charge soon #thingswiththesamedownwardpressureasRyanHall.”

@KeithJBolton tweeted a photo of a knife resting on piece of bread with the caption: “Nearly buttered the bread #thingswiththesamedownwardpressureasRyanHall.”

@rugbyaddict88 tweeted a photo of his hand next to a remote control, adding: “Can’t seem to adjust the volume on my TV #thingswiththesamedownwardpressureasRyanHall.”

Another user, @carlprescott, tweeted a photo of his hand missing a door handle, saying “Why can’t I open the door?!”
