Sin bins

Anyone else getting tired of the pedantic penalties and sin bins?

Seems it doesn’t take much to get 10 this year.

If anyone watched the post match presser, I too would like to know how long the refs warning lasts.
If the ref gives a warning 10 mins into the 2nd half does that mean for the next 30mins if anyone gives a penalty away they’ll go to the bin?

This quick tap rule needs to change too, its just becoming a trap to get a player binned.

The binning of MCK was a disgrace. The tackle he was binned for was no different to any other, didn’t stop any momentum, from what i could see it was 2 no name refs thinking they were going to show how strong they were by getting a sinbin. Quota ticked. The same thing could have and should have happened the other way if thats how they wanted to play it, but it’s easy when it’s one of the “lower” sides to make a statement.

Yeah it’s pissing me off big time

The sin bin was supposed to be used for professional fowls not for everyday penalties.
The nrl want the game to flow with end to end excitement.

Then clubs like the Rorters and the Cheats pushed the refs too far giving away penalties to the max so they could slow the play down .
Once again the NRL have taken it too far in trying to free up the game , hence all the crap were seeing know !

Now it’s a typical NRL shambles !

I can’t stand how slow the players are walking off.

Ive made the comment before and some may find it harsh, but you get binned you have 30 secs to get off the field or fined 10k.

The whole game has become nothing more than time wasting. Go back to when we played the Panthers and Maloney basically walked across the field and had a chinwag with every Panthers player, a cup of tea, and a biscuit before coming back and telling the ref we’ll take the 2.

Happening so often for wests tigers, they may as well nominate a time for it to happen before the game starts…… 💡

or take their own sin bin, like a port-a-loo to the ground… 😒

the whole sin bin fiasco, has got out of control, and is becoming a blight on the game… 😈

I have no problems with it providing it is reasonably consistent, which today it was far from, particularly when not used for the very consistent flop utilised by the gummies.

I didn’t even hear us get a warning. Gallen got one a few minutes before MCK got binned but I wasn’t aware the WT got one.
What a farce.

At the ground I assumed the sin bin was because he tackled him off side from the tap or was it something else?

Absolute joke

Nrl is turning to crap ask anyone

He did not touch Graham from the quick tap and the penalty for the sin bin went back to the mark of his previous tackle, so must have been that innocuous one.

Cheers. Strange one to comprehend now.

Sharks received a warning, but did we? MCK seemed to only be on for a couple of minutes before he was binned. I assumed the refs were trying to get the Sharks back into the game at 10-2 down approaching half-time. Followed up by the dodgy scrum feed early in the second half and it worked.

The strip on Fonua on their try line was blatant, yet penalty only. I actually didn’t know why Chee-Kam was binned. Couldn’t see what happened on the play before. Total over-kill in the context of the game.

Getting tired of it. It’s too subjective as to whether a player gets binned or not.

This year the refs have been the worst I have ever seen.

What they have done to the game is nothing less than criminal.

I can barely watcha full game and I used to be glued to every one.

Clearly after watching them ref the Origin they have to go back to that at NRL level.


Its a dead set joke.
