yea said to the misses at half time that this game could come down to the rabbits missing the early kicks. On the screen they were discussing the mess at the end of the game as tho the ref blew it. i didnt see it that way, comments?
 
Was definitely not the most complete performance. bombed plenty of tries and gave away some silly penalties. the fullback curse continues and ropati looks set to be out for another lengthy time. in the end we did the 2 points and there were some nice touches in there and a great kicking display by maloney.

Also would like to see us get a little more professional with our penalties, nil all and 30 infront of the post we should have kicked to be first on the board, as was said earlier in discussions pressure tells in games like this. In the days of Campion and Price we would never pass up easy points, why are we doing this now?
 
Take the win they cant all be pretty

I gotta say JWH kicked ass for the chooks, Packer impressed me today havent been his biggest fan this year. Masoe is a certifiable head case loved it when Manu put a shot on that fool
 
Anyone else notice the pocket ref in our faces when we made tackles telling us to get up quickly, and yet they seemed to able to lie on us and hold us down for ages!

Tough decision in that situation though, on one hand 30m out in front of the sticks you take 2 points on offer and get posession back, or are you saying to the opposition we're only 30m out from your try line but we dont believe we can break your defence and arent prepared to back ourselves to?

That Aussie ref was riding us all night. I don't usually buy into the whole "refs are out to get us" conspiracy but tonight I think he was trying to keep the game "fair and even". It seemed like he was constantly trying to overrule or cancel out Perenara.

I'm really surprised Perenara was allowed to ref the coaches. Bad enough he is a Kiwi, but he played 3 games for us as well. I thought overall he reffed quite well and there was no obvious bias, but it got a little messy with both refs making different rulings at times.

I heard the commentators say we are the only team not to kick a penalty this season. Unusual stat for 10 weeks into the comp.

I heard that as well, partly what made me question the not kicking.

to mind Points is points, you get the ball back anyway so you still have control. I'm also a fan of the drop kick anytime your 10 mins into the end of a half and ahead even if that means that you kick 3 drop goals in the last 10 mins - points is points and u get the ball back

Braith anasta can fuck off back to the secondrow the kick mmissing fag fuck

While im not sure i can agree witht he language i do agree that he was pushing it tonight and getting away with it. If i was the ref i woulda marched him once and sent him twice. When the ref was telling him to shut it he never at any stage actuall shut up, even when threatened with being sent off. I agree that the game gives him the right to question the ref, god knows why - ive yet to see a ref change his decision after making one with out a linesman coming in, but he was completly over the top.

BTW is it an automatic penalty now for shoulder head contact? cause there is no way he should be on report for that.

worked for me but i couldnt tell anything from that - 2 pixilated for mind

ohh had to check the start it added 2 https- so i deleted all before the www
 
at 1min 40ish of this highlights package you can see ropatis knee bone pushing out the skin on his knee (as hes going to ground). it doesnt break the skin but damn it looks sore

edit: sorry if url not working, not sure how to fix that
yeah, saw it in your link. Just above the left knee right before going to ground. Didn't look pleasant, but I can't see how that resulted in a dislocated kneecap.
 
Can't view the vid for some reason. Can someone tell me what exactly happened to Ropo in that tackle? Was it a leg and head injury in one shot?
I reckon half the 'smash-dem-bro' highlights this year will come from that game. Some MASSIVE hits indeed!
