Not much to excite there, aside from our game.
Saints will try to smash the Origin-depleted Broncos, that could be funny to watch I suppose!

When a player is suspended for foul play, such as JWH facing a 3-4 match ban this week, does the bye count as a match?

Interesting call.

I'm OK with it though. Without the checked run he probably scores no problem.

Still, he did get to the ball in more than enough time anyway..... :wondering:

I'll give Souths fullback Jye Gray his dues. He's only a small bugger (5'7" and 78kg ... a poofteenth bigger than Tooves), but like Tooves, he's got guts.

Was it me or was Cody Walker's pass to Gagai for the try in the corner almost a carbon copy of the move and pass DCE laid on for Jason Saab's first try last week??

Cody dummied and the winger came in and left a giant gap for the pass to be thrown without obstacle. Daly was down a narrow short side and actually passed the ball between two defenders with very little space to work in.

Both were excellent plays but I think the DCE pass had a much smaller margin for error and had to be executed rapidly, making it a more special play.

You mean DCE's pass had a much larger margin for error due to its greater complexity. A small margin of error means there is lower chance of error. You could say therefore that DCE's pass had a small margin for success.
It's like people who say "gee, that was an under par performance." Anyone who knows anything about golf will tell you an under par performance is a good thing. It makes more sense to say "gee that was a double bogy performance". Just saying.

That is an absolute horrible decision for head high. That needs to be addressed if this game is going to move forward.
The blanket rule of an automatic penalty if you come into contact with a player's head needs revising. There are many instances when a ball carrier slips into the legs of a defender, such as in this case. There was nothing the defender could do to avoid contact, which was initiated by the ball carrier.
I can see a grand final scenario when a team is desperate for two points. A ball carrier deliberately slips into the legs of a defender, with the resultant penalty goal winning the match.
The rule should not be black and white. It should be left to a ref's discretion if the contact was accidental or not.

Absolutely. As it stands, a runner with the ball could purposely dive head forward at a defender when he approaches the defensive line, and draw a penalty.

Watching Tavita Pengai jnr, his offloading ability was front and center last night. His late offload is a killer, it got the Phins a try when they needed it. Wonder what the Phins are paying him, can be a loose cannon at times, but geez, wouldn't mind him in Manly colours.

A small margin for error is synonymous with ‘precision’ and ‘accuracy’ as understood in the original context of sample sizes in research, hence its usage in my context. I’m not referring to the ‘confidence’ one has in an outcome, rather the level of precision required to get the intended result.
