I don't either.
A few merkins chuckled when I said I'd love Parra to sign him last season. "Too small", they said. "Doesn't bend the line", they said.
Kid is a gun, reminds me a lot of Nathan Brown actually.
Here's what you had to say before Roberts was binned.
As I pointed out, when a player makes the decision to commit a foul, it is often not clear what is going to happen next. What happened to Roberts makes it perfectly clear that there is a deterrent. He achieved nothing and spent 10 minutes in the bin.
Well that's fair enough but it still leaves us with a discrepancy in the amount a team is rewarded/penalised for the same foul. And there will be times that a player commits a foul knowing that if he doesn't they will certainly score. And I assume the penalty will be the same as tonight.
I'd give motm to Gallen for that one time he hogged the ball all game and ran for 300m
Don't undersell it. It was 400m+... although he did play for 120 minutes.
I think the 10 min sin bin is too harsh a penalty anyway! Tends to ruin a game no matter what.
Having said that, it is the rule, and what is good for the goose is good for the gander. Professional foul is 10 in the bin. And if you are dumb enough to also give away a penalty try that shouldn't change whether the offence is bin worthy!!
In most games 2 points and 10 mins vs 12 men is probably preferable to 4-6 points and 13v13... it is like NSW got penalized for putting themselves in a try scoring position! Cordner scores for certain, so essentially Hunt got away with no consequence for a professional foul while Roberts copped 10 in the bin for the same thing....
EAD Queensland is the only thing to say.
So hungover this morning, but it so worth it.
It was very exciting.
eat shit Canetoads, they've had Cam reffing for 10 years, its a different game with neutral refs
I guarantee if qld won it would have been a full page picture with a headline bigger than the "buy of the tiger" one
What is the go with that?
By awarding him the try when he didn't score they are saying he would have scored if not interfered with which is the definition of a professional foul
So will Ben Hunt join dce in the 'never to play origin again' dustbin?
Wouldn’t surprise me they pick Ash Taylor for game 3
Maybe Hunt to 9? They do need some spark around the ruck
Hope we can do 3-0 and stuff up slaters last game
Actually I’d like ya to win 3-0 , next couple of years , would be nice to win 10 origin games in a row, stick that up your greatest side qld.
What a great game. If Qld were more composed at the end they would have won. Great defence and desperation from the Blues. They can only get better. I thought Cleary was virtually invisible in attack. Obviously the plan was for Maloney to run the show.
Perhaps they should go ice hockey way. 10 mins or until opposition scores next.
Anyway the sin bin/no sin bin made the game more exciting. That traditionally is where Queensland would have jumped over us but NSW held out so it leads to the hope of the crashing and burning of Queensland despotic rule
