            I thought all teams had to change jerseys for the Women in League round?

            Maybe only home teams?

            You don’t get a much clearer 8 point try.

              I don't think at any point Martin was intent on kneeing him. If going in to stop a try and that sort of contact constitutes an 8 point try, we will have a few every round.

              Disagree completely.

                Of course he wasn’t intent on kneeing him but the rule was brought in because leading in with any part of your legs in that situation is dangerous and is done by choice. That could easily have been an injured cheekbone or eye socket.

                  That is basically the Billy Slater rule. It came in after his efforts during the 2008 Grand Final when trying to stop Matty Ballin's try and Robbo's first try highlighted just how dangerous a practice it is. I mean, Robbo was lucky that Slater didn't break his arm. The following season it was outlawed.

                  Plain and simple, whether Martin intended to knee Lodge or not (and I highly doubt that was his intent), a player can not lead with their feet in the act of trying to stop a try. If he hadn't of made contact it wouldn't have been a problem.....but he did and that is against the rules.

                  And on the result.....damn bloody good for nothing Donkeys. Ya just had to lose didn't ya....to the bloody Cowgirls.

                    Very little mention of the try the Donkeys scored under the posts that was called back, and they received a penalty!
                    The commentators seemed to accept that ludicrous decision. It cost the Donkeys a win. Have they been instructed to ease off the refs?
                    The 'Boys have a good roster - far better than ours - and if any fans should be disappointed with their season it's them.

                    Ugh, who'd be a professional tipster?

                    Can't blame losses on one play but I thought when the broncs were attacking the line and Milford put in a kick on the 3rd tackle was a big mistake. About 7 mins to go, a couple of tackles up your sleeve... do I say 'game management'?

                    Can do without 'Bellamy's Bunker as well' - others may like it though but if I never hear from him again, that would be nice.

                    Yeah fair enough, I take your point.

                    I just think that one was so simultaneous in the situation that its really a dangerous precedent to make an 8 point try.

                    But you make a good point and I agree with the sentiment.
