Was it just me or was there a spate of tackles after the ball was played from the Gold Coast. I noticed at least six times in which Manly players were hammered late after passing the ball, including a couple of shoulder charges. Foran was hammered as was DCE a few times. Brett was hammered after he passed for a try. Matai was also pole-axed illegally with impunity. It seemed to go on all game and yet the Pinksters seemed to notice nothing. Our players need more protection as the cheap shots and late hits just kept coming. Poor refereeing and why on earth do we have touchies. I was also right in front of the supposed forward pass from Matai to Tafua and that was a joke as the hands passed it backwards as he was hit. Reffing was poor!!
