100% bail out penalties suck and invite far too much cynical play into the competition. Usually the calls tend to even up in a game but they definitely skewed to the home side.The problem I have with the offside penalties is that they were only called because Penrith dropped the ball. Don't think we did anything different to the previous tackles and penrith's line speed was every bit as quick.
The refs do that every game and it shits me.
Not that they needed them. At the moment the Panthers are in a league of their own and it's going to take one team catching fire and some unforseen setbacks for the Panthers to miss out on back to back titles. Maybe next year without Kikau and Koroisau they'll fall to the pack.
On tonight's performance, the Roosters should make the 8. Consistensy has been an issue all year but if they can get JWH and Keary back they'll have too much quality for their opponents especially now that Suaalii is finding his feet. It'll be a decent reward but they'll just be making up the numbers until the Cheese arrives.
