VAR

Daily Mail - - Cricket -

tech­nol­ogy did not go wrong at Hud­der­s­field on Satur­day. Hu­mans did. Rul­ing Juan Mata on­side was not a clear and ob­vi­ous mis­take. Yet video as­sis­tant ref­eree Neil Swar­brick still de­ter­mined to get in­volved, giv­ing him off­side by lit­tle more than the hairs on a kneecap. In­vari­ably, when VAR causes con­tro­versy it is its ap­pli­ca­tion by hu­mans that is at fault. Poor ref­er­ees will be poor video as­sis­tants, too. Swar­brick should not have got in­volved.
