would love to see a 20 minutes breakdown as when we get to a good lead the refs always start chiming in
The number of penalties given is a meaningless. Probably nearly 100% will be justified by the rule book & the NRL referees boss. The problem is the referees pinging one team for penalties while NOT giving penalties for the same things against their opposition.
Spot on BK. Does anyone have a table on penalties received by a club? Over a whole season they should all be roughly equal in theory, but I bet they are not.
Not surprisingly, Souffs are the least penalised side in the opening 30 minutes. After all, we can't have them falling behind now can we ? How can such a grubby side (GI, Burgess, Lima and Luke) concede so few penalties ? Especially in the opening of games where things are physical. Rigged big time. Also the fact that Manly and the Rooters have been penalised to within an inch of their lives and yet finished where they did only makes the performances all the more impressive.
