No but the reffing sort of evened itself out a bit in the end

You should have seen the spray that touchie copped when he ran past the boys all huddled in the in goal after the video ref decision.

Absolute howler

The touch judges also missed the obvious forward pass. I actually thought Maxwell was good except for the obvious forward pass, but that happens in every game

the NRL needs to bit the goddam bullet and let the video ref rule on forward passes, if they are so bloody obvious that it's going to be a farce if a try is awarded.

They make them rule on whether a player has knocked on during a contest in the air, when really it's 50/50 whether the ball has been knocked forward or otherwise, there is no real difference.

Today really proved to me that it's not a level playing field. Refs really do have their favourite teams and their own agendas.
How else do you explain some of the absolutely shocking decisions today.
Tigers tragic since 1980.

This thread should be renamed "Jared Maxwell and his cronies ruin a football game"

I still can't believe the wrestle Melbourne get away with. I saw a few times today where they had hold of blokes arms and shoulders when they had been tackled, and managed to roll them onto their back. When other teams do this it is called a 2nd effort and the defender is penalised, however these rules do not seem to apply to the storm.

Their first three penalties were from our so-called 'wrestle' in the ruck, and were extremely weak IMO

But it was quite consistent I thought through the game, up until Woods' so called 'strip' in the last few minutes which was weak as psss

the refs were fine. they are human and will never be 100% perfect. the tigers lost because of their terrible first half effort - missed tackles, dropped balls...

Horsehead strikes again. Needs to tone down the arrogance and open his eyes more.
