    what yet another load of rubbish. Hall dived before Choc even got to him. And Tate was able to make the tackle.

    I can still cop the Brett Stewart one, even though Tate pushed off of him, he shouldn't have had to have done that.

    The Glenn Hall one though is just the most dubious decision and to back them on that is wrong.

    I could have copped it had they said, it was a 50 50 call, whilst there contact is not clear and it appears that Hall dove out of the way. Watmough ran a line straight at him forcing that move, in this situation either a play on or penalty are both correct decisions.

    This is one of the issues with the refs, they need be more human not just plain "this is correct, there is no grey"

    He is on his last legs for sure.

    Multiple coaches and club officials are fed up it seems and now the press are into it.
    [hr]
    What happened to the part of the rule where the impeeded player lost his chance to effect the play?

    I very much doubt that had choc run 1m to his right that Hall could have clsoed the 5m gap to Foran in the second or so before he kicked. Hall most certainly would not have effected T-rex.

    Maybe Harrigoon is mixing Hall up with Usain Bolt?

      The upsetting thing about this rule is that it does not take into account a 'bad read'. The rule is obstruction and if a player makes a poor defensive read, that is his fault. If a player obstructs a tackle or prevents the normal line he would take that is a different manner. The Hodges State of Origin incident is a case in point - that was allowed but many other less serious incidents have been called obstruction.

      CW this is why they need to consult players in the ruling. Get the RLPA together with the refs and workshop how the call should be made. If everyone agrees including players and most of the coaches and they stick to calling it that way, then there is no room for any of them to complain

      as an aside i reckon Bolt would have made a handy league player, he's a big unit. strong and obviously fast. Imagine trying to run him down :)

      although his first love was cricket apparently, and is good mates with Courtney Walsh.

        The one thing that everyone is in agreement of is that the standard of refereeing has dropped to an all time low...
