Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Game Day

Thurston took on what Annesley said but admitted: “I’ve never seen a referee change a decision as soon as he’s made it.”

Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Game Day

Back in the olden days they said you had to lose one to win one. We were pretty good tonight and hopefully with the addition of Williams he can strike up a good combo on that right side. On reflection I think the refs did a good job of letting the game flow and Imo the 2 contentious calls ended up ...

I just cant get out of my head why the trainer was on so early in the game and stopped a try and why the ref changed his decision on the repeat set call.

Why?


Both led to a Roosters try..BOTH !!!

Its damn hard to take right now
That's because it is a rubbish call that makes no lgical sense.

Apologies if this has been answered but do you get to choose specific bays when you purchase tickets or is it just a lucky dip within whatever category?

Croker has always been slow. That is pretty close to the fastest he can run or has ever been able to run.

No idea how people have only noticed this now or for some reason thought he was faster.
Nah, once upon a time he was pretty quick - I suspect that knee cap drama has taken its toll.
