Re: Get rid of BJ

It's a tough one, a couple of really dumb plays today but I reckon if Bateman gives him the ball on that last play of the game instead of going to Rapana hes a big chance of coming up with a diamond there, hes incredibly tough to handle in that situation close to the line and if he didn't score hims...

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

Harsh call to be penalised in possession for an incorrect play the ball, you'd find 50 of them in any game if you wanted too, in fact Tapau played the ball about 20 times and I'd be surprised if his foot touched the ball in any of them i thought it was the right call, it was an especially egregriou...

Lots of discussion about manly being offside for the intercept. Does anyone have any proof?

He caught the pass from dummy half 9 meters from the goal line, he was a good 3 meters off side at least

I think your memory is corrupted.

I actually think Isaac Luke is the unluckiest one in all this, There was never any danger of Dylan Brown landing on his head/neck, he landed square on his back, you could argue he went slightly past the horizontal but I think a penalty was sufficient at most
