I was stunned at Parker’s glacial pace for the second try and the wasted captains challenge. Surely Parker knew he’d touched that.

He did some fine cover tackles but I think his speed is becoming a bit of an issue in a fast paced game.

I hate how people just think when a try is disallowed, it would have just been added to the final score had it being allowed,

The rest of the game is different from every decision thereafter, it’s a sliding doos scenario.

And what was the second disallowed Rey, you can’t count koula. That was cut n dried no try.

While we were the better team over the course of the game, Souths had everything to play for and kept themselves in it. I don't like blaming the refs, but, unfortunately, they don't do themselves any favours. I am sure they had been reading the Sattler press all week.

My take, drop balls/mistakes happen so am not going to blame anyone. We win as a team and lose as a team. The whole game seemed to be a bit of a wrestle with the two going set for set. While good enough to get on top of them a couple of times, whenever they got the chance they did well to pin us down our end which, in the end, was the difference. Did we get dudded? Likely. Hopefully as a team we learn a lot from that.

IMO, aside from the clowns, Cook with his desperation ended up in a couple of big moments which kept them in the game.

We had a lot of chances to win and did a lot of attacking in the red zone but couldn't convert to points. Our attack took a real step back from last week, felt clunky and less sharp, very predictable and comfortable for the Souths edges to defend. Plus a lot of pace taken out of the dummy half with Lawton coming back for his first game, you saw the massive difference a threatening speedy hooker like Cook does for momentum in a big game like that. Lot to learn from this, don't remember the last time we held our own and was in a tight defensive struggle, arm wrestle type match with an actual premiership contender.

Got to admit Aloiao had disappeared all night apart from his two glaring mistakes.
With Souths forwards down ,this was the night for him to stand up.
Pathetic game tonight Josh.

This is a good problem to have been our fault that we lost the game .At least we now know that we can match it with the big guns though loosing the game but knowing we were the better team.
This week should be all about working on our errors and decision making ( take the points on offer )
Heading down to Mudgee on Friday to cheer the boys on and hope they've learnt from this week's errors .Keep on saying on here that our errors and injuries will be our biggest problem this year but we have a team that can go all the way to the GF .Let's go Manly .

"I come back to you now at the turn of the tide"
"Manly were robbed a certain try to Tom Trbojevic when referee Chris Buttler somehow found a forward pass Brad Parker in the 30th minute."


Apparently not entirely Manly's fault - some of it - but not all.

FORWARD THINKING

The annual chat about forward pass technology will fire up this week after the Sea Eagles were denied a clear try by the officials.

Head office has mentioned the idea of putting chips in balls for years, and the same old questions will resurface after Chris Sutton found a forward pass from Brad Parker that rubbed out what would have been a spectacular Tom Trbojevic try.

The problem was the pass was perfectly legal and should have resulted in four points for the visitors midway through the first half.

Tied at 6-6 in the 30th minute, Manly’s Brad Parker made a break down the left side of the field before offloading it back inside to five-eighth Josh Schuster.

The 21-year-old then quickly passed it on to star Tom Trbojevic with only one man to beat for what looked like a certain try only 20 metres out.

However, referee Chris Sutton didn’t let the play unfold, calling Parker’s pass to Schuster forward to deny a “wonderful try”.

Fox League’s Dan Ginnane and Greg Alexander were both extremely critical of the call, believing Manly were robbed of crucial points.

“Well that is a wonderful try that has been denied and the Eagles are incensed,” Ginnane said.


“At that no stage did I think there was a forward pass in that movement,” Alexander said.

“No, no, no. No way was that forward, what is wrong? That’s a let off for Souths.”

“Clear Try”?? What BS

DCE letting that try in was a disgrace. WE scored a dead set try only to be disallowed. Not taking the 2 points on offer was just stupid. Then souths get a penalty for a dubious high shot, when the pass was forward. Im not sure what Turbo learnt in the USA, but if running slowly is the way to save his hammies, it was a waste of money sending him there. Schu did some good things but he aint our 5th tackle kick option and everything he does, doesn't have to be no look.

What goes around comes around. Yeah, sure. 2020.

“The pass out of the hands of Tom Trbojevic went backwards. The ball did float forward but it should have been a try,” Annesley told Fox League.

“The call was wrong. The decision was made by the touch judge but the rules state the ball only has to go backwards out of the hands.

What else could he say, he‘d be a class clown he even tried it any other way, sad part is declaration doesn’t help us and doesn‘t change the result, it may be a very important 2 points come the end of the season.

Love all this whinging about a forward pass that may or may not of resulted in a try,given Souths players had stopped due to refs whistle.Don’t recall the same response to the forward pass called against the Eels last week that actually would of been a try.
