    I was just thinking of our horrid loss against the bunnies a few weeks back. It got me thinking, has diving really been getting more and more prevalent in recent years then ever? So I decided I should make a thread of notable diving incidents in the NRL. Maybe we can all truly see if it really is getting to be a serious problem.

    So I'll start off with the first entry.

    Greg Inglis of the Bunnies vs. Manly Sea Eagles RD23 August 16th at Blue Tongue Stadium. Inglis gets clipped by Justin Horo late in the game. Inglis stays down after been told by trainer to do so and gets the Bunnies a Penalty against Manly and Horo put on report.

    Prefer if people type up exactly when and where the incident occurred, what happened and what the result was etc.

    2nd Entry

    Liam Fulton of the West Tigers VS Manly at Sydney Football Stadium 15th of March 2010. Fulton stays down after Tony Williams took him out off the ball earning the Tigers a penalty in which Fulton miraculously recovers and soon races down 40 metres to score.

    These incidents could be of any NRL game and not just ones with Manly.

    Actually there was a stage on the game on Saturday where one of the Storm players was being tackled and looked like he tried to dive and throw himself over in a tackle, but Foz I think it was held him and push him back the other way so he couldn't dive over

    The Sydney Swans have a terrific exponent of the dive. His name is Mike with Pike.

      I saw a Brazilian soccer player go down once clutching his face after getting hit in the knee with the ball.

      There was a good one by Robbie Farah at Bluetongue a couple of years ago that seemed to slightly annoy Steve Matai.

      I remember that one, was in a World Cup game I think. He was standing near the corner post and the other player kicked the ball after the whistle out of frustration, it hit the other bloke in the knees and he went down clutching his face as though he were the guy on robocop who got hit with the acid.

      And it's one of the reasons I don't enjoy the World cup. It's no longer a sport, the officiating is beyond ridiculous and too many games are decided by stupid things like that. From memory the player that kicked the ball was red carded which was even more ridiculous as he never intended to kick the ball at the player in the first place.

      Didn't Glenn Hall take a dive in his first Cowboys game against us which produced a disallowed try?

      Talking about dives in soccer did anyone see the game where old mate grabbed the attackers arm and pushed it into his own face to make it look like he had been punched?

      Of course he layed down for a good couple of minutes as well

      Yes it was, Rivaldo. Waiting for someone to give him the ball so he could take a corner kick, the opposing teams player kicked the ball at him, Rivaldo dived ridiculously and the ball kicker was red carded for his effort.
