Apparently players in the air are fair game if the ball has bounced…. Storm now have their tactic to win the comp….
That’s been the rule for a long time but I’d argue that Garrick was put in a dangerous position.Same thing happened to TomT a couple of years ago in BrisbaneApparently players in the air are fair game if the ball has bounced…. Storm now have their tactic to win the comp….
They could’ve simply ruled offside as well…The NRL ars*clowns now go reactionary and talk of a rule change. What idiots they are. The rule is already there in 3 forms. Attacking the legs, dangerous contact or dangerous position. They had 3 options to use to penalise and they didn't because bunkerclown Sutton is a joke and redhead is a clueless gorm.
This was my biggest issue with the "tackle" as well, Pete: it was never a contest for the ball. CNK's only intention was to put a hit on Garrick, which he did. He should then be accountable for that hit.Taking a player's legs out mid-air with no intention of actually completing a tackle, is not in the spirit of the game, at the least a negligent failure of duty of care, and is 100% a penalty every day of the week
Yes I watched it by myself with no sound in a bar in Bangkok , two tables away 3 kiwis were watching and were saying they got a few lucky calls, the last being the tackle by CNK on Rueben.Even the Warriors supporters who were sitting next to us were saying that it needs to be 10 in the bin and they were surprised when the Warriors got the scrum feed instead…. Go figure. How much longer do we put up with these awful decisions that go against us?
This. After watching that ridiculous gifted penalty to the Fins against Titans a number of weeks ago about being offside to chase down a field goal... and watch how offside the Warriors were for that incident. It's just infuriating how arbitrary rule enforcement is in our game.They could’ve simply ruled offside as well…
