    Apparently the tele is reporting that Latimores ball incident towards Cameron Smith was a deliberate act??????

    Dino I can't even see where Latimore actually even contacted with Smith.

    I can see him reach out a bit, but it looks tame and I can't see the contact in the footage.

    At the ground I didnt see anything that looked bad.

    I reckon Smith is talking ball shit, ooops bull shit

    Considering the arm twists, leg pulls, elbow facials etc. that Smith has dished out over the years(that has gone unpunished), I'd say a little nudge to the nuts is quite tame. I'm hearing Latimore is being nominated for an award for his services to humanity.

    A typical beat up from the Tele.
    As others have mentioned, compared to some of Smiths tactics this is nothing.

    Jason Nightingale said on BSB this morning that Latimore called Fittler after the match and asked to be included in SOO team.
    Well played Jeremy ... he doesn't get the plaudits - quite often he is a target of many on here - but from the sound of Nightingale's interview this morning , the guys love having him in the team .
    That's good enough for me .

    Latimore should be award order of Australia. Finally smith gets what he does to other players. Karma
    Wannabe referee smith didn't cheat and abuse the referees constantly then maybe checcin would have given him the rub of the green....balls.

    Look at the lead up to the ball tampering smith has his elbow around latimors face.Latimore trying to get ro his feet,may have accidently tampered with smith but u cannot see this on any of the tv vision.Cannot be called a squirrel grip.After all melbourne have done a bit of ball tampering is not that bad.

    Im so happy we beat melbourne.Im so happy that the rules we adhered (play the ball no try) .And im so happy that it was melbourne who had to suck it up.Thanks Smith for questioning the refs decisions gave us a bit m9re time to set our defence.

    Poor Cameron. This coming from the guy who was grubby enough to complain to the ref after his teamโ€™s thuggery crippled Alex McKinnon for life.

    Definately not intentional. The replay on tv clearly shows Smith(the grub) giving him a workover( Melb style) in the tackle and Lats is just fighting it off from on the ground when there is some sort of contact made with the crown jewels that is hard to even see.

    Smith has been a grub all his playing career. If this did happen itโ€™s just Karma. If you dish it out you got to be prepared to take it.

    Haven't seen the article but was it written by the Terograph's favourite alcoholic?

    Watching live yesterday it looked no different to any other struggle to get to a fast play the ball. Fox Sports showed a slow mo replay but slowing it down is hardly fair on Latimore.

    Chuckled at Cam Smith having a whinge about it during the Storm press conference as well.

    wouldn't have been buzz ... he is too busy gobbling hastings to write anything on our game.
