Re: 2021 Rd 4 V Titans: Game Day

Sorry, Rapana had every opportunity to go the ball, chose to look at the player and block him, cannot do that, got to go for the ball. Still no Starling .. So a kick to the corner that goes behind the defensive line...do the front line defenders all have to turn and go after of the ball or can they...

Yep, attrocious decision by the bunker given they clearly stated Rapana was penalised for looking at an attacking player.

Re: The Cricket Thread

Well deserved. India's B team absolutely outplayed us over the last 3 tests. Without a 5 day limit, India would still be batting in Sydney right now and then they barely looked like dropping wickets today until they realised they effectiely couldn't lose and started throwing the bat at a few balls. ...

Re: 2020 Finals Week 3 V Storm: Game Day

Storm really are in a prime position this year. They got last week off and were through after 7 minutes tonight.

They will be as fresh as any team to play a GF in the NRL era next week.

In my opinion only 3 teams can win the Comp and we are one of them. We have by far the hardest route but we are a huge chance.

Re: 2020 Rd 20 V Sharks: Game Day

It was always going to be a long shot hoping the Tigers would suddenly learn to defend. We need an extraordinary run from here to win three away games against Penrith, Melbourne and Sydney back-to-back, but it's been a decent season despite losing our most influential player halfway through.

Re: Rugby League 2020

Why don't they just make six again optional? Meaning a team can stop play and kick for touch if they want or play on? Count it as a penalty either way, but six again just becomes an option. The attacking team would always take the penalty and the free 30m on offer. The only time the 6-again call be...

If the Bulldogs can get a result here it might lift the Broncos with the spoon well and truly on the line.

Also, couldn't see how that tackle was anywhere close to a sin bin, even in slow motion. I must have been missing something.

Re: 2020 Rd 16 V Bulldogs: Game Day

Honestly, conceding points in the last minute of a half is unforgivable given the new rules.

There is no reason to get out of the ruck at all if the 'punishment' is a set restart.

Only if we lose. Control our own destiny in regards to top 4. If not it doesn't really.matter of you're 5th or 6th.
If we keep winning, that scoreline also makes 3rd a possibility. Good result for us I think.

Re: 2020 Rd 6 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

Fox commentators are literally saying twice every set something along the lines of "[Insert Raiders Player here] got held/pulled back in the tackle there. Could have been a set restart".

Unsurprisingly, almost no set restarts getting called.
