Thought it was dumb. Was hoping he missed it and kicked it dead.

They very nearly regathered for restart which would have given them 1 full set uo our end,

There was 2 minutes to go. For me take the tap, kick it into touch. Gives them 40 seconds to go the length.

I can understand people having varying opinions on this. My gut was to keep it down their end even if the lead was 1 and not 3.

Even if the Eels had regathered from the kickoff, we were 3 points ahead and could have given penalties away with impunity. We could have laid all over the ruck and denied them quick play the balls without worrying about the damage of any ensuing penalties. There is no way they would have scored on the back of slow play the balls. I'm sure we would have got away with it.
This is football...Funny thing is, I see Brooks stepping up and spreading the word, not Anasta... the kid is all over the game.

When was the last time any side had a kicker that could slot it over from halfway?, remember the semi final against the Raiders in Canberra where Croker failed at 35 metres, awesome Pat.

All he had to do was kick it dead or kick a goal

We wasted 55 seconds taking the shot

When you think about it by kicking the goal the Eels had to score to win

And then they had to rely on Sandow getting a kick right after he had 1/4

Good call imo

Good call, we might have knocked on and given them an opportunity to take a FG to level it. But this way they could only score to win and at most give them one play of a short kickoff

Maybe someone on here could confirm, but I think I recall a pre hip injury Conlon kicking one at Leichhardt from about fifty five out and a dozen or so metres in from touch that sailed over at the Bay end.

I wasn't convinced, I am surprised if Patty really took 55 seconds with the kick, they keep stopping the clock now.

Eels had a full minute left on the clock with the second restart.

I would have tucked it under the arm and worked it into the corner - not even go for a repeat set (risk of kicking it dead) but instead run it on the 5th into the corner or drill it into touch.

The kick is a little confusing, but with the defense of the eels and the poor 5th tackle options we had all day, maybe the kick and wasting of time there (although we didn't get as much as possibly expected), it may very well and was, the best option in the end.

I called the play at the time as a way of winding down the clock and was surprised he didn't take longer to kick it actually. As others have said they then would of had to score a try to beat us.

Not quite on topic but did anyone else see Thompson and one other having a go at Tapau for letting Semi R run it closer to the posts?

Also Anasta had to get the ref to stop the clock when sandow was lining up the last kick. He walk out of the in goal pointing to his wrist. In the end it work out for us but you still hope they get it right.

I wouldn't of taken that one... Use the 5 tackles and roll the ball into touch.

Great result in the end... Well Done Patty
