Taylor in hot water

    SOUTH Sydney coach Jason Taylor could face a $10,000 fine for comments made after his side's 14-2 loss to Manly on Friday night.

    And in a further development at the Rabbitohs, David Peachey has hinted he'll call an end to his stellar 14-year career at the end of the season.

    Taylor claimed referee Steve Clark erred in disallowing a try to second-rower David Fa'alogo midway through the first half because of a forward pass from Ben Rogers.

    But his main point of contention was being on the wrong end of a 9-4 penalty count at Brookvale Oval.

    "In my opinion it was a fair try," Taylor said.

    "On nights like this, the little things are enormously important.

    "The coach's box is down that end of the stand, and I was sitting there watching it. It's a try …

    "The penalties were 5-1 in the second half, and I've got to say when we went to Melbourne and we came to Manly that the referees come here thinking, 'Well, Souths aren't going to beat Manly, or Souths aren't going to beat Melbourne', because that's not how it's supposed to go.

    "I just feel we're getting a tough deal at the moment.

    "I need to talk to [referees boss Robert Finch] about where we're at."

    Taylor conceded some of the penalties against his side were justified, but he might still have to cough up when the full press conference is reviewed by the NRL tomorrow.

    Coaches are allowed to criticise the performance of a referee, but are not allowed to question his integrity.

    Taylor might have crossed the line by implying that referees go into Rabbitohs matches with preconceived ideas.

    An NRL spokesman said: "We'll review the situation on Monday. It's not something we'll do on the run."

    A fine is the last thing the Rabbitohs need after losing eight of their past 10 games. They again defended strongly against the Sea Eagles but have struggled to post points.

    After winning their opening three matches - their best start to a season since 1972 - the Bunnies have won only two more to slump to 11th on the ladder.

    Taylor was crap as a player and he's a crap coach. Always looking for an excuse for a loss. "A tough deal"? jeez, they shouldn't even be in the comp.

    I notice a lot of coaches are coming the 'bad ref' excuse this year.

    Its funny that almost every team that are complaining now are those who were running for the premier not so long ago.

    So used to success that its good to see coaches squirm when things don't just happen they way they want.

    2nd highest point scorer EVER, after only Andrew Johns? 8|
    I'd take a player like him at Manly "in his prime." He was never the same after the Northern Eagles debacle happenned.

    In regards to coaching. He took over Parramatta, and took them from the bottom to the top 8 and finals, then with Souths, had the best start since the 70's. I know I'd hate Manly to have the injuries the Bunnies have had.

    It's like Des says though. He has to show maturity as a coach. His comments about the penalties were WAY off. He was ok with the 3-4 count in the 1st 1/2. He has a lot of growing up to do as a coach, but at full strength, I actually think the bunnies might have done something this year.

    Taylor was a solid first grader at best, if he could not kick goals he would have struggled for a regular 1st grade gig. I would not want him in his prime, Orford is better imo. Although both have not won anything, Orford still has the chance.

    Anyone would think the bears were the team of the 90's and had multiple premierships under their belt listening to Ryan.

    I saw Taylor miss a kick from in front for the NE at Aussie back in the dark ages, thankfully he never played for us. I agree with Garts, if he didn't kick goals he wouldn't have been in a decent side. He was s poor half, slow and predictable, just like the bears. Get of that horse Ryan.

    Finch also won the game for The Blues. Something:-

    Braith Anasta
    Brett Kimmorley
    Jarred Mullen

    were unable to do.

    Case is well and trully re-opened.

    No its not, Finch is sh!t and proved he can kick a field goal, every first grade half can do so.

    As you can tell I dislike Finch a great deal. For the record I would rather Taylor than that nancy.

    He was also 1st try scorer that game wasn't he?

    What other 1/2 back scores tries at Origin Level?

    Don't get me wrong, Finch is a weazel, and I can't stand him, but your theory of saying Taylor wasn't a great 1/2 back is ridiculous.

    His combination with Ikin and/or Buettner was A+.

    In the last few years of supporting The Bears, I remember attending a few home finals with him at 7.

    It will actually be a relief to support a team now though, that may actually win one !!! Hehehehehe.....

    My point was just becasue you play Origin it does not make you a great player.

    All the great halfbacks win premierships, Taylor has 0 next to his name.

    He was solid, a good organiser with a great kicking game imo, + a top notch goal kicker.

    Have to agree to disagree on this one!!!!

    Orford is better than Taylor.
    Whoever said that...I agree.

    Taylor was always one for getting into hot water as well !!! I remember when he peed on someone at the cricket.

    Shocker !!!!
