I had to check guys. It been the major talking point since our loss to the Cowboys and I had to make sure that Clark abided by the rules (or those stated by Ref Boss Finch). It appears the NRL needs to make some sort of appology for the blunder. Take a look at these pics from the game. <div class='spacer'>[img=360x288]../../AE_files/public/1122970661_11_FT0_conversion.jpg[/img]</div> The first screen shot here shows the time the Touch Judges Imediatly Raise the flags to signal a conversion. Chris Hicks has already turned around and is running back into position. 2.24 on the clock <div class='spacer'>[img=360x288]../../AE_files/public/1122970661_11_FT0_calling_out.jpg[/img]</div> When the second screen shot was taken the ref is heard to say, everyone on side. Chris hicks is throwing his hands up and screaming out that he's not on side. 12 seconds after the touch judges had the flags rasied. <div class='spacer'>[img=360x288]../../AE_files/public/1122970661_11_FT0_not_in_place.jpg[/img]</div> One second later, the referee has blown the whistle for the kick off. 13 seconds after the flags have been raised. Enclosed in the circles are Chris Hicks (centre of the field) and the two touch judges. Keeping in mind Finch states once the touch judges are in position the kick off will comence, the correct postition is on the recieving teams 40m line. The touch judge is a good 13 metres out of position on one side and 2 metres from the other. <div class='spacer'>[img=360x288]../../AE_files/public/1122970661_11_FT0_kicked_off.jpg[/img]</div> In the final frame you can see that the moment the ball is kicked, the touch judge on the lower of the shot is still 5 metres from being in position. Disgrace. I want the NRL for once to admit that a bad decision has perhaps cost a team a game. Im not making excuses but the evidence speaks for itself.
