Agree. Thought those two repeat infringements on our defensive line were deliberate to the point of a professional foul. It completely wrecked our ability to put together a cohesive set of six. Its a rorting of the six again rules that needs to be sorted quickly. Yes its smart from the Storm and Panthers, but its cynical and they should never be allowed to get away with it.Only at the warriors can you feel hard done by the refs when the penalty count was 7 - 0 in our favour.
I know what you mean though, some of those 6 again calls should be penalties, and the way the panthers and storm do it explains why they have great defensive sets all throughout games. Very smart coaching backed by smart players who know when to give away the repeat sets.
Makes no difference if you give away a repeat set with the opposition 1 meter out from their own goal line because you have held the player down long enough for your team to get in position and rush up. An extra tackle does nothing and would like to see refs combat this with penalties when these infringements are commited in the attacking teams own 20 meters. Its already hard enough trying to work it out from your own goal line.
Its the new wrestle, chicken wing, crusher tackle and free boat.
