A turning point in the game - Friends tackle on DCE (no penalty) Congratulations to The Roosters on their win, but there was a turning point where if we got the rub of the green with the refs, we may have had a better run with play in the 51 to 59 minute mark. 51.29 Friends tackle on DCE. The tackle by Friend on DCE (after his kick) it should have really been a penalty to Manly, as the shot was high & a bit late. Instead ..... 52.21: Roosters get a set and on the last tackle was the high kick to Wolfman which hits his knee & the Roosters get a repeat set with Brett Stewart flicking ball dead in goal (line drop out). 54.07 Rooster get another repeat set with a high kick on the last tackle where Lyon knocks on into Jennings. 54.29 Aidian Guerra scores of the next set. So the 54th to 56th minute if Manly got that penalty the score would have been Manly 20 to Roosters 8, but it was Manly 18 to Rooster 14 where the Roosters were getting a new roll on & another try in the 59th minute to take the lead. Anyway you can make your own luck!, but that penalty in the 51 minute (rare as the penalties given out by the Refs in the game against the Roosters), could have made the game quite different in the end. Still a good year and congratulations to the winners.
