General NRL 2020 Round 3 - General Discussion

grasshopper

nah the roosters game was the first of the slower games.
Maaate watch the second half of the warriors eels .....i think the ref was slowing it down cause he was gased
After the game one of the commentators on nine was asked if he liked the changes. He hummed and Haaed, but eventually he also made the reference to the 10, however he stipulated that both teams were affected by the same lack of a ten so at least it was still fair.
Of course by then with the ascendancy that the eels had most of that advantage would go to them.

The lack of 6 again in the second half was concerning, as it showed a return to penalties but no quick plays. There were just as many reasons to give them in the second half, especially in the late part of the game, but the ref never called them. I assume he was just to buggered to think straight. Meaning teams that know how to manipulate the ref will get away with murder in the second half.

Also when they are tired I bet training biases will come out in a big way. You remember all that bullshit about training to catch a known offender from doing his thing, instead of calling whats in front of you.
great comments mate ....ive noticed over the past few weeks the warriors have been alot less vocal in the begging the ref for penaltys etc ...which has made them a better team ....or tho its justified and frustrating ,its a key part of game management and i would be surprised if it isnt coached ...sports like life your gunna get some rough calls ....the great warriors sides took the ref out of the game <almost>....the massive change in the warriors mentality has been the calm of the coach.....ADVERSITY BRING IT
