every club in the comp has the wrong Fifita. Freak.

Not just here.

 My cousins boyfriend plays Union in Northern Ireland and when we were watching him play in January he came up against a Fifita. Not surprisingly he was also a grub

Will be interesting if its the last ever game at shark park.... two years away, paid $100k a game to play at the new sfs, few unit blocks on the field.  time will tell, certainly better then going to perth..

Been saying this for a while now. Coupled with no revenue from the club pokies for two years it’s not a recipe for financial stability.

Was just pondering with our youngest who works in media why TF the ref would need to go the video ref for that last Bunnies try, which was so obviously a try. I mean, WTF was possibly wrong with it?

She said because they would have a deal with KFC that they have to give them at least 4 exposures via the video ref per match.

Fark me ☹️

 

Exactly the same Q with the Sharks last try last weekend

The first Souths player to be binned was worse!

A manly player can open hand a player to the head when he’s on the ground but a Souths player can’t object and open hand back. 

I blame Gallen

He pulled a blokes jumper! You can shoulder, you can’t grab. 

They brushed each other.  

Mind you I don’t really care. Souths will be flogged like the broncos were next match.

I think this shot gives a better idea as to why he fell. Look where his right foot is. And the fact the jersey is lifted up isn't a sign of how hard it was being pulled. It had been lifted in the previous attempted tackle when he had the ball.

Both shots show his jersey being pulled 🤷🏻‍♂️
 

His hands are up on Gagai (which you can’t do) his knee clips Gagai’s foot which is fine. 
They’re all sprinting and the refs make a decision on what they saw in a split second. 
Watching it live I thought Jake pushed him. Watching it back you can see he didn’t. 
Refs are paid to make split second decisions and then get crucified for making the wrong call even though by the rules they made the correct call. 
Why don’t people crucify the players for their decisions?

Jake made a bad decision to pull the jumper. Gagai falling over made it look way worse than it was.

It is a professional foul, problem with the NRL and is they let so much go when it suits or miss as it is such a stop and start finnicky game you could literally bin player every 10 minutes.

The number of tiems players get tackled without the ball and nothing gets called, let alone anyone going to the bin. As for the crap putting hands all over faces that should just be instant send of and would change over night.

He wanted to be binned. Bellamy wouldn't let him go off and he really needed to have a sit on the toilet, so he decided to bitch slap someone .

Seeing them loose in controversial circumstances is even better IMO

The issue isn't what caused him to fall. He grabbed the jersey (2 hands BTW) which is a penalty. The issue is if it was a try scoring situation or not. That decides if he goes to the bin or not.

I think you are right

canberra will flog Souths. 

Rooters v melbourne is going to be massive.  Both will play their grand final next weekend. 

Canberra will roll either easy.

Apparently they've been giving away a heap of tickets because they'd hardly sold any.

How good was last night’s game? Really on the Raiders bandwagon now. Hope Papali is given the Slater defence and gets to play the GF, was a force of nature

Agree great game. 

A storm raiders game would rate well on tv.  

Do people actually like the roosters?

The rugby union is currently trying to make the NRL bunker look good. 
if the decisions are going to be a joke can we at least have the funny welsh referee?

One of the big problems with Rugby Union as a spectator sport: there is a pedantic, little known violation of the rules in every single phase of play if a ref wants to find it. Often they do want to find it and games are decided on penalty goals. Boring.

The competition could do with a shake up and a raiders victory, can't see it happening.

All I know is that six to go, then call Final tackle is the worst call I’ve seen.

charge  down by a trainer, then six to go, let the play then call final tackle.

just robbed.

How good was the Newtown finish. 

If you get the chance next year, get out to Henson and watch the blue bags.  Great day out. 

Incredible finish. I lived in Newtown for a few years so happy for that win. 

 

Re the rooster Gf. The better team all season won.  Maybe not the best team on the night.
