One ref, no replays, 5m - not ten, job done. Suck it up when you get the rough end of the pineapple. How I miss the good ol' days.

All they have to do is blow the whistle and quick smart.the coaches will stop their players running and throwing passes behind a series of runners.

Only six and a half rounds ago, the ruck was as slow as a wet week, with wrestling and a form of slow dance being the norm. Here we are fresh into a new season, the music is quiet and the play the ball is much speedier.

The Foran try is the most baffling decision I've seen. No matter what your belief on the obstruction rule is, that play violated it and it stood. I think it when they go down the line of "well this was an illegal play but it didn't matter so we can call it a try" it sets a dangerous precedent (as we saw with the Broncos in round 1 against the Dogs), and now we are stuck with the inconsistencies.

For the record, the try after the bell, whilst it was a wrong call that decided the game, I did not have a huge issue with it. When the refs boss admits they had to watch it frame by frame to work out if the call was right it obviously means it was (what an old baseball coach of mine would call) a "bang-bang play." That is, where it is so close to the naked eye it could go either way, and you have to live with it. I believe overturning the result will open a giant can of worms and I am glad we didn't go down that road.

Video ref didn't cost anyone anything. The on field ruling was NO TRY as called by the ref and touch judge who were both RIGHT THERE and no camera angle showed the ball conclusively on the line. The video ref made the right decision, the fault was in the on field official's decisions.

Only saw a couple of replays on the tele. First time it looked like a try. Second time I thought maybe the initial put down was short. But I would have given it a try however when you consider the rules the video ref had to go that way as there was nothing to conclusively overrule the on field decision.

Spot on!

One replay at NORMAL speed and that's it. No video ref, the linesman calls the line decisions only.

Over a season bad calls and good calls will even out.

Bit hard to believe that it isn't grounded there and he's bounced 2m into touch without getting it down..

Exactly, if it was the Tigers these guys above would be talking about it for weeks.

To me that was conclusive. However, irrespective it
was a shocking decision. Not quite as bad as the non-penalty for the Josh Morris shepherd after the bell in the Souths-Dogs game.

It's clear our refs are rubbish the lot of them. I'd sack them all and bring in new blood.... Pay them $200k each and we will get serious refs rather than the Turkey's we have now

That's rubbish....the angle from behind the in-goal clearly showed Waqa's upper body slide beyond the try-line with the ball always remaining on the ground and therefore should've been overturned by the video ref....

I think it is a good idea to have players in the video refs box , but you have to have the right players

Paul Mellor isn't the right player he was a winger /centre and would have little idea what to be looking for in a shepherd / obstruction play

We should have halves in these roles , they now exactly what they are aiming to do in those situations and what is and isn't a obstruction
