Did he ground it? He got up not celebrating looking a bit guilty.

Surely there's another ground located in the area that isn't situated right next to an ocean, makes for great viewing from home though

Gale force wind behind him and Wighton can't find the touchline on a penalty kick

While the Sticky meltdown is certainly gonna be gold, I think that last bit of play really emphasizes how AIDs the six again rule actually is. It has to go.

Yes hopefully that really brings it to everyone's attention. It's so easy to exploit

Never gets fined though...

He's been looking like a real whinger this year and it just so happens to coincide with his team sitting outside the 8

Heard B Smith say on tv that if Storm need a penalty instead of the 6-again you just have to 'accidentally' drop the ball. Shows how bad the rule is (and also how thorough Storm is in analysing every potential advantage).

Yep... automatically becomes a penalty because the play has broken down.

The stupid thing about yesterday's dragons vs raiders game is that raiders wouldve taken the two on any penalty inside the 30m yesterday.... the ref should be aware of this and start calling penalties instead of 6 agains.

And the most stupid thing about yesterday and application of the 6 again as a whole... is that the ref has the discretion to call a penalty instead of a 6 again at any point.

It's been that way since it was brought in.

Calling a penalty does not need to automatically constitute a sin binning either.

The ref should've been aware that dragons would be slowing everything down and willing to give up 6 agains all day as there was about 90sec left when Canberra got down their end.

The NRL will do something stupid and be like... "ok from now on 6 agains will be penalties inside the last 5mins" and then there will be an issue where a 6 again is given 6mins from time... or teams will be happy to give up penalties all day instead of 6 agains when they have a lead of more than 2pts... like they used to.

It's all fucking stupid when it's already there that it's at the ref's discretion to call a full penalty if they want to... and it doesnt need to be an automatic professional foul

Is that 100% correct though? As many times this year I've seen play break down straight after a six again is called and its been a handover. It seems you get an eternity with the advantage call from the opposition knock on, but next to zero advantage from a six again.

Your asking the refs to apply common sense,

When in this round alone a push on kicker as he was kicking was a penalty and on report and another dangerous tackle when he’s sitting on his arse.

These idiots can’t apply common sense or feel for the game.


Its better to be judged by 12 then carried by 6.

Why is the last five minutes of a match treated differently to the first 75 minutes?
The NRL's answer will be because it creates greater "entertainment". So why not treat the first 75 minutes like the last five minutes?
Wouldn't that give us an entire match that is entertaining?

Wait, did Robinson not get fined? For real? He called the ref’s performance not good enough and while this is true every game every round, how is that ok?

It was far worse than that, he specifically said it was because it was the Roosters. How he's not fined we can only wonder. (er..maybe because its the Roosters?)

From about 3m35s ... "it wasn't a good enough performance, you still should be in a position, it's not going to happen in Roosters colours, that's not bias that's a fact, that you're not going to get those opportunities..."
