I still like the principle of the captains challenge which is to get rid of the howler, such as those crazy strip decisions we had to endure in the Eels game last year which it would have been perfect for.
But I don't like how the bunker is now overturning the on field decisions based on speculation. Shown at full speed when Papa was making the tackle on Edwards it looked innocuous with no deliberate kicking motion and Edwards had a duty of care to protect the ball.
With the following Hiku
decision, the only frame that conclusively shows he had his hands on the ball along with a clear view of the positioning of his foot happens to show it was planted in the in-goal.

Penrith were well within their rights to challenge, but both referrals were late in the game speculators and the bunker should only be overturning the original decision if its 100% conclusive.
