I was @ the game & everyone thought the Tigers would get a penalty, i was listening to Hadlee on the Transistor & he was convinced it was a penalty to the Tigers, what do you say?.

Really like your nine and expect him to make a big difference following an offseason with a pair of working shoulders, instead of being rushed back a month or so early.

Who knows. He only received an offer from the Bulldogs and didn't like the looks of it. Seems desperate to me. Maybe the head office would have seen that interview and offered him something. I know that I would at least

I certainly would too! We have the money to snare a player like Oats, but for some reason our club just doesn't seem to be interested, despite desperately needing some size and speed on our wings.

Maybe they think he is asking too much and will most likely end up staying with the Broncos anyway. But how much is too much for a game breaking player? Who cares if he's a winger or a second rower? They're all as valuable as each other if they're in the top 17 and putting in, imo.

On another note, how can the Bulldogs, with all their mismanagement and salary cap issues, suddenly be able to make an offer to a gun player like Oats? And they've picked up CHN from Penrith as well! How come they aren't restricted to chasing second tier players and older guys at the end of their careers like we always had to do when we were struggling financially? (And are still even doing now!) It boggles the mind.

Should have won that game. Ripped off not getting the penalty when Jeremy Smith slid knees first into (Heighington?) on the ground when it was 12-12 wth about 10 to go. Lead 12–6 at half time. That hurt, not as much as the Roosters game a couple weeks before though.
Tuquiri from memory. Blatant intentional knees.
This is an interesting,albeit biased, read on the no penalty decision.....

http://classic.austlii.edu.au/au/journa ... 2011/2.pdf
That's really interesting thanks. I didn't know that dropped knees were illegal regardless of intention, I always thought it was an interpretation of whether or not it was an accident. Refs should know the rule.

I don't think I've ever seen replay footage except in the immediate aftermath of the match (now 8 years ago), as it's not captured in the official NRL highlights.

And I think we were all aware of the contradiction that Smith was cited after the match despite not being penalised. That always frustrates me, because I can understand a ref being unsighted in such a play, but it went to the video ref. Then the match review essentially over-ruled the video, because you have, by definition, made an error if you don't penalise an event that is later prosecuted (that is Trodden's case).

I gauge the article you linked to be theoretical rather than encouraging action, as I certainly would not support a club, not even the Tigers, taking the NRL to court over a ref's decision. Some sort of fraud or blatant and regular cheating, sure, but not high-stakes refs decisions. It would just undermine the game. Trodden himself states that play went on and "Benji Marshall made an error" - how often do we hear comments like that in Tigers games?

I'm not even annoyed that Smith later plead guilty. Trodden takes this as an acceptance of guilt by the player and St George, but Smith was free to play in the GF with a guilty plea, so that decision is not an admittance of guilt, simply a desire to bypass review and potential worse outcome.

So actually apart from the FACT that it should have been a penalty for knees of any intention, what really annoyed me most about that decision is that Bryce Gibbs copped an 8-pt try and 3-match suspension in late 2009 for dropped knees. He slid into Luke Burt with his knees, collected him after scoring, and it was reviewed for an 8-point try. The slide began more than a metre from Burt, so it's not as if Gibbs dropped knees directly onto the player, rather he struck him after dropping first to the ground then sliding along the grass.

Both the on-field and off-field refs applied the maximum penalty to Gibbs, though I believe the length of his suspension was influenced by previous incidents. I.e. Jeremy Smith might have missed the GF in 2010 had he a rap sheet like Gibbs. The match review committee conceded that Gibbs made unintentional contact but kneed Burt regardless - and now having read your article, I finally understand why: because intent is irrelevant wrt dropped knees.

The incident had real repercussions as Tigers needed to win both remaining games to make the finals (we lost 1, won 1) and Gibbs ended up missing the rest of the season and Rd 1 of 2010.

Yet a year later, Smith avoids a penalty and avoids suspension. Billy Slater has more recently been sanctioned for leading with the feet, because studs-up and knees into a tackle is dangerous. Imagine if Smith had broken Tuqiri's ribs or ruptured his kidney?

Wests Tigers

Josh Aloiai and Robbie Rochow have both undergone hand surgery with Aloiai expected to be fit in time for the start of pre-season. Rochow's injury was more serious than his Wests Tigers teammate but isn't expected to miss too much of the 2019 preparations.
