Point is not where he scored, it’s where he received the pass/got involved in the play, which is well before the grounding location and closer towards Nanai. Even a metre is still under 10m total transversely from where Nanai caught the ball. I guess my point was that it had to have been a definitive 10m to overturn a ‘no try’ call. i.e catches the ball on the 30m line and passes to the player 10m out from the try line (clearly made 20m before passing).
Guess it doesn’t matter now anyway
Davey going back to Parra? I haven’t heard this.Now that Davey is going to the slime, Des should be starting him from the bench and Shuster in the starting line-up as he needs more match fitness and game time especially when he'll be playing in the halves next year.
i dont think we let him go the first timeThis. He’s been at the club a very long time and done plenty of good things and won us some games. However, if there was ever a player that just goes thru the motions to collect his check every week, regardless of the result, it’s him.
Twice now we’ve had the choice of keeping Foran or DCE and both times we’ve let Foran go. It was a mistake the first time as well. The sooner we can move on from him the better.
We were the better team with DCE playing for 73 minutes. People forget his kicks that go us in good field position. It’s the last 7 minutes which is on the entire team not just 1 player.We are a better team without DCE playing a game management role. That is a huge problem considering he is our captain, halfback and main playmaker.
8 minutes to go, Crocker kicks ball downfield, Drinkwater let’s in run in his ingoal then beats 2 defenders to get infield, Koula tackles him then ref blows a penalty for not being square when he was. Cowboys kick from penalty, go downfield, kick and score. 26-18. Manly kick off, Cowboys keep the ball alive, score again. 26-24. Dce kicks off and Nanai drops the ball. From the scrum Drinkwater makes a play for DCEs arms and knocks the ball free and Holmes scores. 26-28.DCE was rubbish...we were 14 in front...he needed to manage it and close the game like a champion million dollar halfback...He Didn't! FACT Des needs to be firm and drop him from 7 and go with what works...Give the ball early to Haumole and speed demon Koula...Geez..
