I thought it was no try, he didn’t have control.
I didn't think it was a try either. Probably worth a look but I don't think it is worth the attention it may receive this week if the Tigers end up in the news again.

The put down like you say wasn't under control and also hard to make out.

Someone else pointed out that there was a forward pass earlier in that set. That won't get a mention. I'd love on a show like NRL360 if they had someone who was big on detail or even a Warriors sympathiser. The closest to a Warriors sympathiser would be Paul Crawley with his occasional "They get shafted every week".

Imagine this.

Rothfield "That was a bad call. The Tigers have a cause to complain. Madge is under pressure and that happens in front of their home crowd."

Some one responds. "There was a forward pass 3 plays back so they got lucky. But that kick should never have happened. We can move on now."
 
Maybe its still just early days and its a matter of ironing things out (these sort of things is where missing out on that extra trial hurts)

Remember Reece had 11 try assists last year so he knows how to put someone into space.

Perhaps we need to look at whats happening before he even gets the ball.....is the ist receiver taking it deep enough in the line before he dishes out the back? Is he squaring the line up enough? Are the decoy runners getting their timing right?

Would probably have to watch that game again (and who in their right mind would want to do that? ;))

This is where ill be fascinated to see how Reece and S J combine in this regard......id go so far in saying that combination could determine the success of our season.
Ive just been watching a replay, Chanel Harris-Tavita doesnt engage the defence as a half, his passes are either way too early or too late e.g a bad pass to berry in the first half causing a knock on. Its suprising how little out the back are team plays, they seem to either pass the flat short ball or dummy for themselves. Will give nikorima credit in the 1st half he seemed to be the only one reading what the defence was giving him. Teams are jamming in which is leaving the cut out to the winger available but i think the halves and walsh are afraid to throw it for whatever reason.

Alot of potential try scoring plays are held up by either egan making a wrong decision and the first receiver who is a forward choosing to hold the ball when the out the back is shaping up, that is really hampering us having guys who die with the ball.

The variety of our kicking game is so dependant on Shaun Johnson and Taylor, Chanel Harris-Tavita and nikorima offered nothing as for grubbers or just a different type kick to keep the defence guessing. Shaun Johnson must stay healthy for this team to succeed this season. Hopfeully hes back next week.

What is everyone's thoughts on the Tigers disallowed try?

I've seen on my Facebook feed Macguire saying with all of the technology they should of looked at it. From the commentary it sounds like the bunker did look at it, just the game wasn't stopped and the ref didn't to the box signal.

The Chanel Harris-Tavita disallowed try last week the ref made a call of try and as the Warriors were celebrating then getting ready for the kick the bunker would of reviewed it quickly and decided it needed to be reviewed.

We were lucky they felt there wasn't enough contact. We will probably hear more about it during the week unless something else happens over the weekend.
If that was a Warriors play I’d at least want to look at it. On replay it looked close but due to the refs call of no try I’m not sure they had enough to overturn it. The confidence and speed the ref said no try made me think he must have seen it bounce given where he was positioned.
 
Putting aside his near 200 games as a Super League Head Coach, Brownie has coached more than 270 NRL games. He's hardly 'learning and adjusting still to what works and what doesn't work as an NRL coach'. He's actually amongst the most experienced coaches in the NRL at the moment. His winning record since he returned from the Super League is absolutely atrocious (around 30%). Granted he's taken over basketcase clubs, but that was his choice and he was appointed in those roles to move the needle in a positive way. No matter which way you look at it, the performance on Friday night was dreadful. If that, along with last season's debacle, makes Brownie your favourite coach, then I admire your optimism.
OK yeah my point doesnt hold with 270 games experience

Just glancing at his record. Why did he do better at St George?

Brownie inherited a good battle hardened roster at the Dragons. St George finished 7th the season before he took over.

Brownie worked his magic and the club came 10th in his first season there (which was most notable for his infamous mid game face slap on captain Trent Barrett). He eventually got the roster firing and they made the finals the next 3 seasons before falling into a hole and he was let go.

Wikipedia states On 1 April 2008, it was announced that Brown would not coach St. George Illawarra in the 2009 season,

In 2007 they came 15th and he was fired at the beginning of the next season
In 2008 where he was caretaker coach (after being fired) Dragons finished 6th
Or was that not him coaching in 2008?
 
A coach can maybe ride off the prior work of the coach before them, but in the longer term a coach adds (or detracts) significant value.

Yes to the above should have added that point.
SK and Brown and other dudes could manage the storm to top 4 this year on Bellamy's hard work and then results would dry up eventually
My major point is explained by saying the Bulls three repeat dynasty was based on Jordan and not Phil Jackson.

The NRL referee who mistakingly refused to refer a crucial Wests Tigers try decision to the Bunker is "very upset" following the controversial incident.

The Tigers lost to the Warriors by four points on Friday - a deficit that would have been erased had Luciano Leilua been awarded a try for his efforts during the first half.

Leilua chased a Tigers kick into the in-goal, and replays showed he almost certainly grounded it before the ball ran dead.



Shit, I can’t remember a ref ever publicly saying they felt very upset for us with all the crap calls we get. Even when the refs were overheard making racist comments about players years ago when their mikes were left on there was no apology. Now they apologise for not awarding what wasn’t even a try. What a pity party.
 
Just rewatching - with 26:30 to go we get a third good ball set in a row. Tigers are gassed, imo ready to break easy. Egan clearly wants to go for the try, Walsh is standing there to take the kick, general confusion ensues, we take the kick. I wonder who made the call?
As it turns out was the right call whoever made it. We would have been one wrong move, a dropped ball, away from stuffing up a go at a try so take the sure points perhaps and get the ball back off the kick-off.
The kick put it on the Tigers to have to score a try & they were playing shite too, so a bit of a psychological barrier for them to overcome, and one for the Warriors to be a try ahead in points and back their defence because their attack sure as hell wasn't working out that good. Was it a conscious decision to back their attack or kick and leave it in the hands of the gods? Then defend like hell for the rest of the game.
Maybe it was a tired Addin Fonua-Blake, maybe it came from the coach - saw a shot of him at the time & the commentators mentioned he looked like he was wondering what the hell was going on. Somebody said Walsh but who knows?
Interesting question though.

Weird thing is that we had turned down a kick for goal 30 seconds earlier. Since then we had gassed the tigers even more. Weird call imo

Yeah, and they really didn't look like they were on the same page, any of them. Be interesting to know who made it 🤔

Bizarre call, even though we kicked for goal we were still only 4 points up, if Tigers score and with luck on our side miss the conversion we would still need to score again to win so trying to score to actually seal the game when they were tired would have been the right call for sure.
After the game in an interview Chanel Harris-Tavita said he was off the field at the time but penalty kicks are left up to the players on the field to judge their fitness levels etc. On the TV it looked like Walsh was definitely leading the choice to kick for goal and others weren't really sure, that's not how you should win a game for me, they should really want to show they can win confidently by attacking, kicking for goal just let the Tigers gain more confidence and belief in themselves as they were only 4 points down instead of a potential 8 which would have put them to bed early.
