I find myself questioning why certain penalties go against us.

To be honest, I thought we were fairly disciplined today. The Roosters were given 7 penalties in a row during that second half.

Seems to happen to us in every game - the 20 minutes after half-time we are starved of possession off the back a a 6 or 7 - 0 penalty count. Not sure if this is statistically accurate, just feels that way recently.

Has warea Hargreaves got off Reynolds yet?
Haha stood out didn't it?

I'm all for refs not blowing borderline penalties if they are consistent about it, but Roosters got a few really soft ones, two that were converted. If you are blowing soft penalties, ok, do it every time. As noted the Fergo dropsy stood out, completely irrelevant that the markers were so slightly not square.

The end-match offsides were obvious enough to commentators and journos, they blew 19 penalties in the game, but changed their style with 10 to go.

They had a good first half, but the penalty count was certain to even up in the second. Forget about the rules of the game, quotas and KPI's are more important.

Refs were bad but we beat ourselves.I have never expected the refs to help the tigers in over 50 years.Balmain and the Magpies never seemed to have any assistance from them usually getting the dirty end of the stick each week,unfortunately nothing has changed since the merger and i dont expect it too.
This makes the wins we get so satisfying

OK so we beat ourselves with the referees help. Does the NRL have a referee review panel? These refs are fill the blank. I hope they are volunteers because you wouldn't want them to be an employee unless they were following a script. NRL is a joke.

I can't believe there was no offside penalty in front of the sticks for us. Marsters made the wrong decision running from dummy half, but if that were us up the other end they wouldn't have hesitated penalising us.
We were all waiting for it .... expecting it ...... but oh that's right .... we're Wests Tigers .... we only lose that way.
We don’t only lose that way,!
We have an unlimited list of ways to lose and we try to use every one of them, Refs are only a very small part of them.
