Probably happens more than we know. Just happened to have a camera on him at exactly the right time.

Extra time please, thank you.

Why didn't the Panthers go for goal... if they were going to eventually go for field goal?

Now the Roosters score. What an error from Naden.

Same. Was hoping for a Roosters implosion but that fight back shows that they are still in the fight.

Assuming Hargreaves doesn't play next week.
Kikau possibly for his tip over.

We have to beat the Sharks tomorrow and get an amazing grand final rematch against the roosters in a big final.

Can’t think about next week until after tomorrow’s game however. Sharks first.

I reckon Easts were a fair bit dudded last night and were, at worst, on par with Penrith. I actually think they were the better team over all.

2 of Penrith’s tries we’re pretty blatantly wrong calls from the officials imo.

Also. How many set restarts were there all game? How obvious is it that would happen.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

The slowing down of the game is something that will suit us should today’s games be officiated the same.

Which 2 tries? Roosters were charging off the 10 metres for the first 20 minutes. Wighton got sinbinned for doing it once.

Post by gangrenous »

I’m probably on my own here, but despite the closeness of the game I thought it lacked finals intensity. There was impressive attacking football with very few errors, but it felt to me like the defence from both sides wasn’t finals intensity. I think that will be to our detriment because Roosters have another gear in them I reckon.

Agree that Penrith were hit in the butt by the rainbow that was the refereeing - two of their tries were very suspect.

Edit - @gergreg, assuming julian has the same opinion as me. Think it was Cleary’s first try which looked to come from a knock on with the tackled player dropping it forward and it rebounding back. The second for me was that Luai was offside on his tap back.

Five. Let's not complain... we're one of the most "penalised" sides with set re-starts.

You're not on your own. I was expecting a typical finals slugfest from two of the toughest defense's to crack. Turned out to be a fast paced shoot out punctuated by a number of defensive a errors. Normally tries are much harder to come by when the top sides clash in finals. Wasn't the case last night.

The one where Liam Martin (?) lost it onto his own knee and then a Roosters player? If that is the one then I agree it should have been a knock on.

Wait, what? When did they stop pushing in scrums?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Naden had a horror night all round. If Roosters got that last field goal he couldn't have found a hole big enough to crawl into.
