Handball tonight /handball rule in Main Discussion - Norwich City Posted February 29 9 minutes ago, keelansgrandad said: No, the new rules went in our favour. Still depends on the chap in front of the VAR monitor to decide. Or else they wouldn't have looked at it so many times. It was obvious in normal time, well for us watching on TV,that he had handled it. The ref doesn't have that option obviously. But VAR still had enough looks to make sure it was handball. I'd argue its not VAR that saved us but actually the referee didnt apply the rules and hid behind VAR.
