JWH should have gone, unfortunately the NRL crackdown on certain things while others fly. Elbows are okay, but throw a punch and you're gone. Idiocy, in what other sport with send offs can you deliberately elbow someone on the jaw and not be marched?

I just finished watching the replay and I'm annoyed...Michael Gordon knocked on a Brooks bomb which would of had us on the attack...Bwaith in his commentary said it was hard to pick up and you get those almost apologetic that Henry is a pumpkin...

Surprised haven't seen it mentioned...
To be fair to the ref on that one, Gordon dived for it and came up immediately with the ball, usually an indicator it has been caught cleanly. I had no problem with it live.

The quality of refereeing is just garbage and getting worse. Forget missed or wrong calls when the game is at full speed, but when they can't even get it right after replays (like Semi knocking on twice the other night), it is time for a wholesale cleanout.
The bunker must be the most embarressing waste of money the NRL has ever conjured up.
I reckon the cleanout could be as simple as moving on one person - Archer. He was an arrogant referee and he is an arrogant refs boss

If I could grab one guy to play for the Tigers it would be him. Exactly who we need. The kind of guy you'd hate to play against but love to have on your side.

That being said that was a cheap cat act last night.

What do you need to do to be sent off now?

The NRL are so concerned about the example being set to the kids so they make punching an instant sin bin, and yet a cheap blind sided elbow to the head is ok.

Even slapping will get you 10 minutes in the bin...

Touching a referee will get you a week off...

But whacking someone with your elbow is fine???

I just don't get why JWH even bothered, it wasn't much of an attacking kick, he could have let Tui run through with minimal impact on the kick return.

JWH is a pretty good footballer but he's also an idiot, bordering on being a liability at times.

I'm annoyed we lost.
And she's turning cold, at fifteen years old,
Taken too much slow, minds gone out to sea on the P&O,
Don't know what to do, rotten shade of blue,
Another case of "stupid is as stupid does..."

Agreed. He's the 2nd most penalized person (26) behind Maloney (31) this season.

So JWH gets to donate some of the Roosters petty cash and can play this weekend. Pretty disgusting.

In that video above of Barba having a slanging match with Willie Mason at the 20 second mark how low of no. 4 for Bulldogs pulling the leg back of No 2 for Knights McManus, the guy can hardly get up afterwards. They should be sent off for deliberate dangerous play when completely unnecessary to stop the opponent who is already on the round on his guts.

No ..he doesn't have to pay a cent..he wasn't fined... he was charged with Grade 1 dangerous contact..Free to play with early guilty plea ..1 week out if he contests the charge and loses...
