BBC Sport - Huddersfield Giants: Eorl Crabtree calls for obstruction rule changes
Change obstruction rule - Crabtree

Huddersfield Giants prop Eorl Crabtree and ex-Great Britain coach Brian Noble tell BBC's Super League Show that the obstruction rule needs to be reviewed.
Noble believes the rule can be exploited by defensive teams trying to play for penalties near their try line, while Crabtree says there needs to be more common sense in enforcing the rules.
Crabtree admits Huddersfield benefited in their 26-22 win at Hull KR when David Hodgson had a second-half try disallowed for obstruction.
