DCE gets tackled by Jennings at the 69min30sec mark , is on the ground and held about 20 metres out, then Jake Friend does a flop with a swinging arm to the head/neck. That's a penalty every day of the week. If Manly players were coached to stay down it would have been reviewed and the officials would have had to give a penalty. The score was 20-18 at the time. The penalty to Easts against Horo on JWH at 6-6 was bizarre. JWH was tackled by Horo , and almost straight away the referee started calling out "Justin , Justin" . Horo released JWH quickly , JWH got up and dropped the ball cold without any suggestion of interference by Horo. It put Easts up 8-6 and was pivotal in the context of the match. Again , if Horo had taken a dive after the headbutt that occurred after the penalty was given, the referee would have been forced to act. When George Rose tackled Moa against the padded upright , Moa lost the ball then caught it as it touched the ground. The ball bobbled again on the ground . He then played the ball illegally by lifting his right leg up and rolling it quickly without even trying to use his foot. I realise this happens dozens of times every game but it was the worst play the ball of the game. Toovey said after the Inglis dive at Bluetongue that maybe he should tell his players to stay down. I realise he was being facetious and it's not in his DNA ,but with the standard of refereeing as dire as it is, maybe he should . I've watched the grand final 5 times so far. Manly were marginally the better team in my opinion. The kicking game of DCE in the 2nd half was ordinary (apart from the Lyon penalty try). The only negative was the re-appearance of panic at the end of some sets in the 2nd half (some aimless short kicks when a bomb was worth a shot and Foran running crossfield on the 5th then losing the ball when trying to push a pass to Lyon who was covered ). Easts score from that error to take the lead (albeit from a forward pass with the touch judge on that side directly in line with the pass).
