The bunker is in complete disarray.

You can live with the ref missing something in the one glance they get but the bunker consistently getting it wrong is a total embarrassment.
Yep. Turf the bunker for everything other than the captains challenge. The video ref has been an abomination since its inception, and has done nothing for the sport except give the nrl additional advertising revenue and destroy the fabric of the game.

Is Des special needs? merkin can barely speak.

He's rare as. He'd be one of those blokes who've fallen through the mental health cracks, in government housing stealing Woodstock 12% from the local BWS if he wasn't involved in rugba leeg

Watch any game from before the video ref existed and you'll find this laughable. It's needed

How you get 3 players reported but only give away one penalty in the whole game for a ruck infringement? Tigers were apparently perfect, no high tackles, no offsides, no foul play, but 3 on report!

He gives off very strong public transport masturbator vibes.

Good call bro. So I’m guessing you don’t think it should have been a sin bin? And also that the Sezer ‘knock on’ were the correct calls?
Both terrible calls. There were also more Tigers on report than Penrith got penalties; let that sink in. Referees make headscratchers every game. It’s not some conspiracy against the Tigers or for the Panthers. It’s just the better teams can roll with the inconsistencies better than others.

Missed calls in play happen all the time to every team. It’s the lower ranked teams that have to regularly deal with blatant errors from the bunker and calls at crucial times going against them. If that was a Panther or Bronco ankle tapped by the tigers rather than Olam, history says the tigers player would be in the bin. Not only that, the tigers had to use a challenge just to get a penalty. If you think the 50/50 and even 80/20 calls don’t favour the more recently successful clubs then you haven’t watched enough games.
Annesley will come out on Monday and say it was wrong, but that it’s open to ‘interpretation’ or some other bs, but the reality is those calls will continue to go against teams on the bottom half of the ladder.
