Tipping Comp 2021
Have the rules changed to allow this back in or is it just the NRL has no idea?Saw this on Twitter , think he’s right
Annesley gets away with it because by the way it’s written he’s technically correct.Saw this on Twitter , think he’s right
He is a joke, takes a miracle for him to admit faultAnnesley should be fired.
That justification is laughable, two blokes side by side in front of the play the ball will impede a chaser even if they don't move or make contact. The second it takes for the defender to run around them is enough for the kicker to take an advantage. End of story.
I am also suss of his drop kick justification for Gutho's knock-on. I have seen plenty of these called knock-on when the foot doesn't get to the ball before it hits the ground.
He is playing us for fools.
So to 'defend' the field goal attempt a player needs to search out a blocker, collide with him then put on an acting performance, wailing on the ground and flaying about....I contend that this case was different to the ones he showed as the players were standing in front of the play the ball (although he did suggest that was an optical illusion based on angles). He did basically confirm that the bunker would have looked at the decision if Rein had "collided" with the Roosters players but would not make a call as to the outcome.
Such a lot of media chit chat about blockers this week, for field goals and also general field kickers.
All the refs could hardly have missed it, it is suddenly a hot topic.
Hopefully we won't have to rely on a DCE field goal to get the win.
