    Players are accountable
    Coaches are accountable
    What about these Koala's??
    Front up and explain some of these filthy calls...Titans must be ropeable!!
    Maybe if they had to front up...these Refs would make better calls and not change the outcome of a game...yes they are human and the odd bad call...but that was blatant....

    It's all good. I imagine Todd is looking at the "processes" now.

    Doubt it would do much good - how about Archer stumbling all over himself in the halftime interview trying to justify the penalty try?!

    He's painted himself into a corner now, can't come out tomorrow and say "actually they got it wrong, but it didn't affect the outcome of the game, so all good" - which is usually his default option when public, media and commentator opinion all agree it was a balls-up...

    They won't front up as that means they'd have to speak truthfully and can't have that now can we, so there's no point in an explanation.

    The bunker dudes MUST be included in the match fixing investigations ... that Round 7 Manly Parra game final score was determined by a n unbelievably wrong decision just as the Donkeys were given a huge leg up tonight due to numerous outrageously wrong decisions !!! FMD ....

    Not a fan of some of the decisions. Especially the penalty try...

    The broncs were the better team though.

    I wonder what the video ref thought of Archer.


    Probably no idea as usual.

    Das Bunker-
    "Made a decision & we're going to the board", which is really, Make a decision, we're all getting bored.

    All I heard was a heap of excuses...
    I have personally seen infringements in a play the ball incident cost a team a try...Slater has saved 10 tries kicking the ball & lauded a heroic play, difference was , he also got the player...I also seen several bias penalties to swing the game at vital times when Titans had momentum...let me state - with Manly gone I would like to see a Canberra or Penrith win in 2016...many will claim Brisbane were better & maybe on the back of EVERY decision till the game was gone, they were...just.
    Truth is, if Manly copped what Titans did last night....would have called after 40 years loving my footy... To find another sport....then come 2017 , probably get sucked in again.
    Worst one sided calls I can remember.

    Listening to that archer interview it just confirmed for me that we are never going to get an objective assessment of referees in the current system. It's all about justifying the unjustifiable. The excuse in the kick in the back is laughable. Apparently the rules on when the bunker can and can't get involved are so definitive that the kick couldn't be adjudicated on because it was a split second before the actual play the ball. But elsewhere the bunker is used seemingly at the whim of the ref - a dubious knock on, yes, a blatant ref wrong call on the contested bomb, no. We need an independent review system for refs, not run by an ex ref who seems to have a vested interest in promoting how good the refs are going.

    The NRL is all about giving the Broncos a leg-up. Not only do they benefit from a biased draw and scheduling, and being able to recruit who they want, but they always win the penalty counts and last night was a rort. I can't recall too many matches where one team received all the favours.
    Why did the Bunker make an overrule on one unclear incident yet not bother to come in when Roberts kicks a tackler in a play-the-ball that led to a try?
    There were plenty of moments where the Bunker could have ruled in the Titans favour but remained mute.
    If the NRL is serious then they should investigate the refs and Bunker in match-fixing.

    I think the fact is the NRL is dying everywhere but Queensland so they need to protect their golden club.

    Your average Bundy drinking Brisbanite will call all this ref stuff a conspiracy against them as they rub the chip on their shoulder.
