The refs dont like a lop sided penalty count .
They penalised manly early for their slow down tactics and manly eased up a bit.
The rest of the match the refs were just trying to square up the count.

RE: Manly Side
Matai milks penalties
williams can’t catch
Lyon can’t tackle.
Game plan, run at Lyon
what are you on about??? Lyon is one of the best defencive centres in the game
Really? He’s a turnstyle
And I’d certainly would rather run at him than Matai
RE: 1 week at a time
After we beat Manly (yes we will beat them) we won’t be “flying under the radar” any more.
They will be talking us up. Hopefully this will work in our favour , but it may put pressure on the team.
As long as Benji doesn’t get carried away and shoot 20m cut out no-look flick passes while no-ones looking we could give this comp a shake.
(Having said that eels will probably beat us regardless of how where going)
RE: 50/50 calls today
Those two calls (obstruction ruling, and payne fumble) I thought were 50/50 and went to us.
Normally they wouldn’t.
There were a few other call that didn’t too.And they were blatant mistakes.
The Gallant one where the ball was stripped after he was tackled and the one where Ryan was ruled to have knocked on when there was absolutly no evidence of it on the replay(mid way through first half).
