Seems a lot of people are up in arms about the Warriors tries disallowed because of obstruction. Lot of comments that these cost the warriors the game.
Seem to be overlooking the forward passes in the lead up to one of the tries, Mannering scoring from a kick batted back to him despite the fact he was in front of the kicker, and the try scored off the set after Manu knocked the 40/20 kick back witha foot on the sideline.
The officiating this year has been terrible across the board.
Mannering wasn’t within 10 metres of the kick being contested, I didn’t have a drama with that one.
The forward pass in the try on half time was so far forward that it would have been even more embarrassing for the game to allow it to stand.
The foot on the sideline would have been easy to miss. That’s tough for a touchie from 30 metres away so those mistakes are going to happen from time to time. I don’t think those sorts of calls are howlers.
The Johnson no try Woods milked, but players just need to resist the temptation to take advantage of those kinds of gaps that are created when they’re crabbing across behind their own players and there is any kind of contact, regardless of who initiates it.
