Plus the souths player only had eyes for his winger and never had any intention of passing to Gagai.
And by the time the winger ran out of space and the play fizzed out there were about 3 Rabbitohs players around the ball. None of them wanted it, including Walker who immediately dropped it.
I can't stand the idea of diving for penalties and in RL it is unacceptable. Yet the NRL continues to encourage it through these ridiculous decisions.

Yes, it amazes me how it can take 3 or 4 players to tackle someone when they have the ball but a fairy trap is enough to do the job when they don't have it.

This will annoy people on here more but I will leave you with this statistic

Both games against Souths at anz stadium this year round 17 and the semi just gone

Souths 17- manly 5 penalites combined for both matches.

8-2 round 17
9-3 semi

Both those games we were never given a chance to win .
Both games had a say in our top 4 aspirations and our season.

They didn't read that game very well, they managed to minimise penalties but only against Souths - in spite of the fact Manly dominated between the 12th and 57th minute, scoring 5 tries to one in that period. Where were our penalties??
I'm not sure I understand your point. Im in agreence with you.

My point was that the game has created a system where a referee is in full control of interpretation and when to apply the interpretation.

This clearly isn't working. This is the inconsistency. This is the problem.

Imo I feel that the NRL have made a rod for their backs. I remember watching the 1973 grand final they had Keith Page as referee, 2 linesman, one camera angle players called by numbers and no on field discussion with players regarding penalties. Yet today we have a lots of cameras, lots of field mikes, 2 referees slow motion replays, the Bunker, captains able to question the decision. Yet with all the technology there are still Fark ups. why???
because those that make the decisions are human with human failings. In 1973 if there was a mistake made everyone copped it on the chin and moved on yes there was bitchin and complaining but it was short lived. Today errors are unforgivable due to the fact that they keep promoting how advance, and the state of the art technology of the bunker. So as a fan we expect correct rulings which match officials are incapable of getting right. Sometimes I almost feel that the decisions ae made after listening to the opinions of the broadcasters ie Gould, and Co. So the NRL is its own worst enemy. As fans we only expect what they promised correct accurate rulings due to the you beaut technology they use.

Annesley's statements regarding this match have shown him to be unprofessional and out of his depth. He should resign.

His initial reaction to Des ("tell your players not to give away penalties") was petty and inappropriate. He continued to make comments about the Jake sin-binning before he could possibly have reviewed the match properly.

His comments today about Parker not being in a try scoring situation when he was taken out are just laughable. He's tying himself in knots trying not to admit we were dudded. He's shown himself to be a complete clown.
He was a failure as a politician, he was a failure as CEO of the Titans, these qualifications make him a perfect fit for an NRL administrative position

That is so true

Suprised I did not get kicked out of the members stands both games I was so livid at the end and during both games.

We were robbed both matches

You can bet when the draw comes out soon for next year our boys will circle the dates when we play them next year.

Canโ€™t wait for the season when Souths are contending again
For the spoon of course:):)
