Feisty game.
Frank Winterstein is a bit of a quiet achiever.
He was sound as with little extra.

Can someone talk me through how the Bunker gives Sims that try? He was in an offside position. Didn't make any effort to retreat back on side. The Bunker is having a laugh.

Fucking cheating donkeys. Hope the NRL fine them for abusing the HIA free interchange.

Ashley Klown is a horror show of a ref. Did he have coin on a Manly Broncos double? That try to Moga. Lol. He basically tells old mate to watch it again. Which he proceeds to watch in slow mo for 3 minutes. Klown then tells Burgess they watched it in full speed. Blatantly lying. And lol, missing the knock on for the winning drop goal.

He shouldn't see first grade time again this millennium. Horror show of a referee.

actually you cant tell what the bunker are watching anymore. They have 4 screens how do you know that one wasnt running at full speed the whole time.

IMO that wasnt a knock on on the field goal. he had his fingertips on it the whole time, it never rebounded from his palm. He did adjust it as he lifted it, but at no time was there seperation. Again in real time this was a massive non event.

Bunnies shot themselves in the foot by going for the win instead of golden point.

P.S. i personally agree that the tackle was completed in goal.

Think Canberra will be in trouble they definitely flaunted the law tonight
I think it is going to be damn hard to fine the teams that cheat that way as its damn near impossible to say that the contact didnt rattle the player, and that you took him of for safety reasons

Some of those tries the wingers scored last nite were just awesome - Rapana's (never gave up and grounded the ball just before the back line) and saw the highlights with Corey Oates two - brilliant finishes. If only.................

Because Sutton kept talking about the balls position always relative to the speed and position of the slow motion feed.

Once the ball hits your hand, and it slides to the ground, every day of the week it's a knock on. It's like a cricket catch half volley. There is still a moment where the ball is on the ground and not in control. That one isn't even debatable. It's as clear cut as it comes. You're , no offence, the first person I've seen across forums and twitter that suggests it's not a knock on.

imo he had fingertips on the ball on both sides with no separation at any time, that constitutes control. I thought the debate was that it had hit his back hand first and then separated forward onto the ground where he regathered. Which i disagreed with.
Are you saying that the debate is actually that the ball was on the ground and that he touched it in some manner that created separation? because in realtime there was no knock on - again imo.
And im not the only one who must think that way - theres at least one referee that agrees with me.

Unless your saying that even though he had hands on the ball (ala the fingertips) that that doesnt constitute control, even though he effected the motion of the ball?

Ashley Klown? Lol. You're using him as a supporter of your view? The reason Klown ruled it that way is he didn't see it. If he had "TV eyes", as in, he saw what we all saw on TV, he would have ruled knock on. They call that play knock on every day of the week, unless they miss it. Which is what happened here.

and i disagree, as does Bennett and the player in question. Its just an opinion and really didnt effect the outcome of the game. The first error did; the tackle not called over the try line. And then the bunnies shot themselves in the foot by not going for the kick but trying to win it on the last play of the game.

Penrith remind me of Warriors 2012. Hyped up as premiership contenders after a solid previous year but with a really young squad. Give some good opening performances to give hope but effectively crumble away as the year progresses and it becomes clear the young blokes just aren't ready yet. I might be wrong but some of these penrith players just aren't 80 minute first graders. They have Broncos next week so they could be 2-7 before they meet us.

Of course Bennett and Milford disagree. They were advantaged by it.

Aside from yourself, Ashley Klown (although in hindsight on second viewing he would change this view given how they interpret this play game in and game out, that he would change his view), the coach who was advantaged, and the player that was advantaged, look at twitter, look at other forums, there is no one else of this opinion. I will be amazed if even Tony Archer defends it as anything other than a poor refereeing error.

You're right. The try call was a disgrace and got them into a position to win the game which should never have been allowed. Especially given Bernard Sutton said "we can see Anthony Milford has not grounded the ball and is tackled in goal, have a decision going to the board", but then Ashley Klown tells him to look what happens next week. Even though Ashley Klowns instructions when initially referring it was to check to see if Milford had grounded it.
