General NRL 2021 Round 25 - General Discussion

I thought that just made a mockery of the system. The ref petulantly accepted the challenge after the time elapsed even though he said it had as if to prove a pointless point. I also think that Timoko wasn’t held, grounded and his momentum didn’t stop so the call of held was premature. These refs are under so much pressure at the moment you get the feeling the players know it and will be toying with them all through the finals!

it’s a strange thing to say but I’m glad we’re not playing finals for this reason as well. The officiating genuinely gives me anxiety watching our team. I end up looking at why we’re getting pinged for ruck infringements or who was offside etc rather than enjoying the contest. I hardly ever feel like the best team is winning and ref is far too involved in the momentum than he should be.

what other sport can you say that about? Plus look at how much benefit the Roosters are getting after Robinsons blow up because the refs don’t want to be in big city media targets again. Just shaft the little guy, nobody cares.

Also look how much difference some penalties and set restarts make to continuing momentum. We got fucking none in over 120 mins against these same teams who are getting pinged time and time again. NONE!!!

sharks kinda remind me of older warriors at the moment, battlers for the finals, sometimes useless, sometimes dangerous.

Sharks have done pretty well for a team who lost their starting half, dumped the other one to save money, fired their coach and lost several key players to injury. Similar to warriors except they keep fucking playing well.

well if we beat the titans we finish 2 points outside the 8.

Sounds better when you say it like that

or, if we at worst, lose by less than 12, we crush their finals dreams, which also sounds good

Same bro.

I see a lot of Warriors fans did not rate the six point loss to them. Which just reflects how many do not watch NRL games and just make up their weighting of how strong other teams are on some imagined NRL they play in their minds.

In the lead up to the games against Manly many people posted the Warriors should win because Manly are shit.

Manly's rise is symbolic of the fact that NRL teams do not stay the same.

And it is silly to think the Warriors should beat anyone in any game in this competition. Teams are not static.

We joke around and call the Sharks a team of Removalists, mostly because the forwards are built like, and you can see ... they look like removalists... lol

I got nothing against removalists... I used to do the job myself, though I'm built more like a halfback!

I wonder when the last time was that Shark fans were rooting for the Warriors to have a win
