    It happens. Just like early in the second half the Raiders were rucking it out deep in their own territory. A play the ball was almost sideline to sideline, but it was let go. Another time, another team and they would have been pinged.

    Roosters don't score off the next set if BJ isn't so casual following the play. All the merkin had to do was run back his ten with the ball carrier and tackle some merkin from behind as he comes on side.

    As it is he jogged back to the line leaving his mates to do the work.

    Yep, Leilua cost them twice. That defensive play as well as blowing a try by showing a complete inability to execute a simple draw and pass.

    He's been a liability for them for years. I can't believe Ricky perseveres with him.

    All in all it was a great game of footy.
    Both teams showed spirit and plenty of heart. An excellent grand final that I enjoyed.
    The more skillfull team one in the end. Just a bit to much class.

    Cordner's foot is on the line before he touches it, which means when the ball touches him it's dead.

    No different from catching the ball with your foot in touch. merkins should learn the f**king rules before they have a whinge.

    No it doesn't have to land outside the field of play. If the defensive team gathers the ball in the in goal and runs the ball dead it is still a drop out.

    If Cordner had been a defender and touched the ball like that, he would have been deemed to have taken it dead. Is the rule different for an attacker?

    No, he's already dead as his foot is on the line before the ball touches him.

    Yeah but behind the in goal, if a defender touches the ball when they are in touch, but before it hits the ground, they are ruled as having put the ball into touch. So when an attacking player does the same then it should be a 20m restart. Unless the rules are different for attackers and defenders. But I've never heard of that.

    Wasn’t Luke Phillips a referee at one stage?
    He’s just making shit worse!

    Because he’s an absolutely damaging attacking player a lot of the time. It’s about weighing up the good against the bad, and it seems Ricky is ok with all those bone-headed plays as long as he keeps running over merkins.

    yeah, there was a case a few weeks ago where the ball was past the dead ball line and an attacker grabbed it before hitting the ground and the refs ruled he had taken it dead - no other player nearby to make a play at it

    I had thought it was ref's discretion if the ball was well past the dead ball line .... but I'm not sure anymore

    I'm guessing that player wasn't in touch already. Cos reading that tweet it seems there are different rules for attackers and defenders.
