It’s genuinely remarkable to me that people can see the JWH tackle and be like “finally! A penalty!” And then minutes later say the refs have got it in for us because of the Oldfield tackles

It encapsulates perfectly why I think you’re just **** **** :lol:

If Easts score first we will cop a hiding. I can see the headlines now:

They’re down a winger, center and their best backrower.

If we can’t win it from here then we should concede the season.
We’re 18 behind a side that still has Cronk, Keary and Tedesco. It’s no cakewalk
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Pretty awful half of football from the Raiders and the refs.

They are missing an entire edge though so this game isn't cooked if we can turn things around. Lots of motivation for Croker and perhaps even Wighton with the left centre position almost certainly vacant.

We’ve got to fix the **** discipline in the second half.

We’ve dropped the ball on attack and conceded enough penalties that they should be up by 50. We are somehow still in this and they’re down to one reserve and have backrowers in the centres. Just hold the bloody ball and play smart footy.

I honestly can’t see what Oldfield can do differently there.
No different to the one Jarrod WH was called for earlier- consistent and fair - you have to protect the neck
Exactly
It’s no illegal but since McKinnon they’re going to call anything like that. Right or wrong, they call it time and time again. Whether you think that’s right doesn’t matter, they are consistent with it
Of course you have to protect the neck - but tell me what Oldy could’ve done there? It was all Tupou trying to get himself a quick PTB.
Nothing. Oldy could do nothing, just as JWH. See how that works? The official called it the same both ways
You’re making too much sense Piggy - but it doesn’t fit into the narrative that everyone hates the raiders...

I don't think either JWH/Oldfield tackles should have been penalties. Sometimes players just accidentally end up in awkward positions. The bad ones are where players are grab from behind and the tackler will just drop to the ground cranking the attackers head forward.

If we fix our discipline, up the tempo, we should win this, the horse and Hudson are first grade standard. Love their work.

Exactly. Unless there was some indication of intent or negligence penalising it achieves nothing.

I’m not one to whinge about the refs. But my gosh, that first 20 left me wondering what they were doing. I don’t have any qualms with the try’s but during regular play has been abysmal.

Now we will have to hear about the "brave" Roosters winning with 14 men.
Or, if we pull ourselves together in the second half, we have to hear about how the Roosters lost because they only have 14 men.

Basically the press will spin it there's no way we "win" it.

Also, can I just say, I am super cheesed at the commentators. Constantly rabbiting about how there are no centres left for NSW etc etc. CROKER. HIS NAME IS JARROD CROKER!
Can I suggest breathing into a brown paper bag?

I think the onus needs to be on the tacklers to make every effort to avoid putting a player in that position. Agree no intent in either tackle but comfortable with both being penalised

Aim the attack at those forwards sitting out wide. Take advantage of that.

Tighten up the d in the middle and get some discipline back.

Sting in defence, trust each other.

We are not done here but we need to be heaps smarter...

I agree
I’d prefer them both to be let go, but that’s just a preference. And I can see why they go the other way re: player safety
Ultimately all I care about is do they call it consistently. And in this case they do, and the incidents like Bj’s a few weeks ago are rare

I know where you are coming from and I think both were correct calls. It’s just that there were two others on CNK and H Young as well that weren’t called.

But surely even you would have some concerns at the referee Sutton’s inconsistency today. He’s unhappy the Raiders formally complained about his performance at Brookvale and he’s showing who makes the decision.


Also, Have you ever seen him talk to two players at once about a decision. Don’t know why he picks today to suddenly apply this ruling.

Aside from the the problem the 2 Suttons are causing us we have not come to the game with a defenCe mindset. Simple mistakes 2 out of the 3 times we have been in the Roosters red zone are unforgivable. However, we have taken 2 off their best players out of the game so with more thought and commitment we may still pull this out of the fire !
It's a simple game; tackle, back-up, pass, hold the ball! What did I say? "Hold the bloody ball!!"
