In an era when we review everything post the game ending I have never understood why this is not addressed post game.

In football pre VAR (their video ref) it always used to frustrate me that players were not fined / suspended for deliberate dives which you could easily see

Players faking to get penalties should get fined / potentially suspended (understanding this may be hard to prove) as I am not sure how you could do it in game without slowing things down even more

Oops!
plus Shaun Johnson!
Yep Munster was milking yesterday Lolol!
I should have been more clear in my post as I was not at all referring to his recent injury, which I hope he recovers well & quickly from, but he does have a history of acting to milk a penalty.

The new game is woke unfortunately.
Not to be annoying but I see people using the term 'woke' in the most weird and wonderful ways.

Can you explain to me how players feigning injury is the game going woke?

Woke is a term originally meaning alertness to racial prejudice and discrimination and has now come to encompass a broader awareness of social inequalities such as racial injustice, sexism, and denial of LGBT rights.

Now without getting into a left or right discussion. How is players milking penalties in Rugby League or refs getting sucked in to giving cheap penalties anything to do with racial injustice, sexism, and denial of LGBT rights?

Drawing a long bow there, between woke* and feigning injuries. I don’t quite get the connection.

*Here is a brief summary of its meaning from Wikipedia:

“Woke is an adjective derived from African-American Vernacular English (AAVE) originally meaning alertness to racial prejudice and discrimination.[1] Beginning in the 2010s, it came to encompass a broader awareness of social inequalities such as racial injustice, sexism, and denial of LGBT rights. Woke has also been used as shorthand for some ideas of the American Left involving identity politics and social justice, such as white privilege and reparations for slavery in the United States.[2][3][4]

No mention of footballers feigning injury.
Oh I should have read down....Terry gets it.
