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.
