Ignoring the fact that I am a NSWelshman.
So there's nothing to have a chip on the shoulder about, then
We will be still up n about for a few years yet folks so get used to it. The planning the clubs done for the big 3 to leave has been phenomenal.
I thought the refs were spot on for the gf. Kept the penalties to a minimum and let the game flow which made it very entertaining , especially for us storm fans with 6 tries and a few, line breaks ! Oh what a night it was boys
No, I was an admirer of the Storm. I wasn't a fan, didn't go to any games of theirs and then when I found out they cheated the cap I didn't like them so much, but then I realised that I'm happy they are winning comps and the Broncos aren't of late, haha.... These days I mostly admire their ability to piss people off with their success, it's hilarious.
Just watched the Grand Final replay last night.
First thing I noticed was that the commentary is getting worse and worse every year. They just don't seem to give a flying f**k anymore.
I know that the game wasn't the most exciting from the perspective of a neutral, but commentators are tasked with engaging television audience as best as possible. The audible groan from Gould as Finucane was about to score was cringeworthy
Haven't seen the 9 replay but watched the Fox one last night and the commentary wasn't too bad.
Might have to give that a watch instead
Good on the Cowoys for getting there but that was such an anticlimactic match.
It didn't have the Grand Final feel about it at all.
I just had to share what Ryan Girdler said
Only players to get the Clive Churchill Medal in a losing side:
1991 - Brad Clyde (Canberra)
1993 - Brad Mackay (St George)
2013 - Daly Cherry Evans (Manly).
Girds speaks the truth.
Following are most of excepts from the Laws of the Game regarding Obstruction or which may be applicable -
As can be seen, none of the laws of the game deal with obstruction by the referee. The only one that might is law 8.1 (f) in Section 16. The problem there is that, in this situation, had the contact with the referee been deemed a mutual infringement, the resulting scrum would have given the Cowboys the loosehead and feed.
The issue revolves around whether one of the teams "unjustifiably gains an advantage"?
Game went as expected. Storm should be back to back premiers now as they have been the best side in the past two seasons.
I would expect Easts to push them a lot harder in 18.
Nah, Knightmare is well balanced.
He's got a chip on both shoulders.
In the sections you quoted.
Contact between a defender and Referee may not constitute a mutual infringement.
I know. I put it all there for people to see. Again it comes down to interpretation as a number of rugby league's rules are not "black and white".
it did for us.
And he is still fit enough to play.
Every one of them should have gone to players on the winning team.
And now with Cronk, even harder still.
