Re: 2018 Rd 19 V Sharks: Game Day

Gee you have some bloody awful ideas Ricky.

Phil Gould and Andrew Johns are the absolute last people on earth I want anywhere near a referees overhaul.

Re: Why I am proud to be a Raiders fan

BTW if we are just supporters of the NRL business does that mean we can't criticise their decisions? Now you're doing my head in Schifty!

Re: Playing the whistle

Why would it go back to a Cronulla feed for a scrum. The Touchie saw a slight knock on, the ref said there was a knock on, the Video ref didn’t see one because of poor footage. Trust the officials closest to the action and play their live calls. A 2d image of a 3D event doesn’t always show small to...

It’s not the Bunker. The Bunker generally is really good and improves the refereeing immensely. It’s just the inconsistencies and utter brain snaps that they seem to have that ruins a great set up.

You’re being a fruitcake pigman. The Raiders see a signal by an official which MUST lead to the stop of play.

While the flag issue is a major stuff up. I am really hopeful that the NRL doesn’t brush over the issue of the Bunker overturning the no try ruling in the first place.

Re: Playing the whistle

Where's the exact wording that says this? Exact clause please that says "play must stop when the flag is raised for something that blatantly isn't in touch" Blatantly isn’t in touch? Wasn’t he about a foot from the touch line? There’s plenty of players who wouldn’t have been certain he wasn’t out?

Playing the whistle

Honestly the correct play by the Raiders in this scenario is also to stand around and let him score. That ensures it’s sent upstairs and the appropriate decision should be made which is no try our ball, or at worst a replay because the touchie signalled in error. If they tackle the player then the r...
