If the second souths try was legit, so was the Symonds try. The difference was that the ref thought the Souths try was legit and that the Manly try wasnt - and that pretty much forced the hand of the video ref. The new system gives a lot of weight to the Refs decision, even in cases where he may have had a poor read of the play. I prefer the old rule where the video ref decides and the Ref doesn't give an opinion, unless asked by the video ref. At least then you get consistent decisions. The Symonds try was massive - 14-6 with approx 30 minutes to go would have made it a sensational finish. The game felt to me a lot like the Dogs game at brookie last year. We seemed overly hyped and edgy. You just sensed early on that things weren't going to go our way.
