It wasn't clear enough to me what happened,
but yeh you are right it was one of the possibilities
really surprised not even a single commentator mentioned it.

Speaking of commentators, Voss on the sunday Roast was haing a go at Utai, Gibbs and sauce for getting leg cramps late in the game. Now it could have been tactics or it could have been cramp, whatever, Voss called it time wasting, but if I remember correctly, the ref called time off so how is it time wasting? that is the point Voss was making. It may have slowed the momentum of the game down but WTs had the ball. If any time was lost it was the few seconds, if that, it took the ref to blow time off. Our blokes aren't fibbers are they? If so, good tactics IMO anything to annoy the opposition especially manly and perhaps Vossy.

I didn't like it.
Should've given it to Benji to run towards the dead ball line. :lol:

When watching it live, I thought it was a mile forward. However when watching the replay the next day (sober) I felt it was only marginally forward because it has come out of Farah's hands either line ball or marginally forward. It looks worse because Farah stops immediately on passing.

It is the direction out of the hands that determine a forward or backward pass. Manly fans and the press are blowing up, but in the aftermath of the try you could hear Robinson quoting the rule to Lyon and stating "out of the hands it was fine, it traveled forward with momentum." Robinson and the touch judge were in perfect position, so their interpretation was that it was line ball.

If that pass is questioned, why is the pass from Evans to Stewart not questioned? That actually comes out of his hands in forward direction towards the Tigers goal line and is extremely flat.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Yerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :sign:
Brilliant, Cunno.

No matter anyway - I've watched the replay numerous times and the CherryEvans pass to Stewart was at least a metre forward. All square for the night on forward passes.
