When was the last time prior to this that the NRL felt they had erred significantly in favour of the Raiders and apologised?

Re: 2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Game Day

Three critical decisions in the game that all went our way! I hadn't noticed the Whitehead one live but that was a clear penalty that was missed. Not sure I agree about the sin bin of Croker as the Storm player could have clearly made it a lot easier for him to get his hand out. Maybe the luck is r...

That’s a pretty old pic of ANZ. That seating at the ends didn’t last too long after the Olympics.

That game meant nothing to the Roosters. They gave as many asterisks as Raiders against Warriors. I wouldn’t base anything on that result.

Re: Croker's kicking

Was chatting about that with the family. I think if Croker is striking at 100% you still have your backup kicker doing that practice.

You can’t risk Croker going down in a final and expecting your backup kicker to step in unpracticed.

But yes it’s probably more important in this case.

Re: Croker's kicking

That was exactly the point I was trying to make Gangers. I didn't have a problem with taking the shot for goal which potentially got us out to an 8 point lead and success or failure means we get the ball back. I just thought from a game management point of view, throwing the ball to the co-skipper ...

Think you’ll find you’re looking at the total points, which is impacted by number of games played.

GE has both above Croker on a points per game basis.

Re: Croker's kicking

I think Croker is very good in pressure situations. He’s iced a lot of critical difficult kicks. But certainly he’s out of form, he knows it, and that seems to make it worse. I guarantee he is leaving no stone unturned to try and address it. It’s the type of guy he is. I think there’s definitely an ...
