Could Have Been Killed By the Refs Again...

Post by stevied » Mon 16 Jul, 2018 7:28 am

It was a fantastic win against all odds and what I'm about to say will be branded negative or nit picking by some but....

We could have been killed by the refs again....

1. We should have been leading 12-6 at half time if a brilliant and fair try set up my Marshall had been given.
2. We should have been in front 24-6 if it weren't for the double knock on call when Nofualuma streaked away to score following a Kurt Mann knock on.
3. Was Widdop off side before regaining the kick?

Other than the three incidents mentioned, the officials did a good job with a low penalty count keeping the game flowing. However, if we hadn't built such a big lead it could have ended in tears. It's hard not to think that the refs have the flash thought, 'it's only the struggling Tigers and it won't matter'. Besides the bum calls for the Tigers, the game simply doesn't need these types of mistakes. The pass by Marshall was top class and should have been rewarded as such.

Forward pass looked okay to me but it was very flat so a bit of bad luck there.

Double knock on was the right call. Dragons knock on and the Tiger knocked it back into him before regathering and setting up the play.

The 2nd decision was correct the first one was terrible even a tigers hater in Anasta said it was a fair pass from Benji.
Until the day i die i will believe that teams are refereed differently and if your club is not one of the "chosen" you will get more bad decisions go against you.Some of the decisions against the "battling" clubs this year have been nothing short of criminal

We got away with a million forward passes during that game, but the only one that mattered was pulled up. Apart from that, it was probably the most fairly refereed game I've seen all year, especially with us involved and playing a top side! Saints got their fair share of dodgy calls also. One of our blokes played the ball sideways at one point in the second half and the refs totally ignored it. I was amazed!

The ball was flat but because chee got himself a bit in front of marshall called forward.

Thanks Chicken. They didn't go back and replay the double knock on and I based my call on Warren's commentary comment that he didn't know where the Tigers knock on was.

I was OK with the Marshall pass being called. Thought it looked forward at the time and the refs only have one opportunity to call it.
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..."

Yes -rare for a ref not to check that the tty scorer was behind the kicker.

Yes, to be totally honest, despite the positives of a low penalty count, the game was probably under officiated and could have done with one or two more penalties. I thought Saints were constantly off side following changeovers in our end but that could be my gold and black eyes shining brightly.

I agree with you Jad and it's a blight on the game.
