What happened to...

Post by Geo. » Fri 05 Jun, 2015 10:37 pm

The policing of the ruck.... I'm curious..

Lost count of the number of times the Titans advanced leaving our markers not set ...allowing quick play the balls...

We need to start pushing the boundaries as well...can't beat em join em...
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

That's a good question. It's a shame, because Farah was a lot more effective when they were stricter on the markers being square
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Storm, Roosters, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans

You just have 2 confused Refs out there looking at each other on who is going to make what call.
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

I said the exact same thing, the titans were walking off the mark every tackle. Half the time they were playing the ball in front of the marker. It gives the dummy half a massive advantage being able to promote the ball and bring the team forward.

Just had this conversation half an hour ago with someone, its my biggest issue with the modern game.

The refs try to excuse it by saying they shortened the 10 on themselves therefor disadvantaged themselves. Trouble is its no longer the case, some coaches are using this as a tactic to gain momentum.

If penalised or told to go back and play on the mark that 1 second makes a massive difference to the over all game.

It's s*** me it's not policed .. Inglis is the master at walking off the mark .
But as Geo said we need to start playing smarter and get some grubby tactics in place .were heading into oblivion by playing by the rules !!!

I get annoyed that players are basically stepping over the ball and not attempting to play it with the foot when playing it.

That's the thing, your right referees say they know teams do it but it shortens the 10m so is disadvantaging them. However they are now only having 1 marker which is a much, much bigger advantage then the defence gets.

Tonight it was out of control and not pulled up once.

Can't believe Keithy got pulled up for not being square, I was behind the play, both teams failed to be square 100 other times this evening.

^He appealed for exactly that, the player having moved diagonally off the mark, if that's the case what is Keith supposed to do???
