    That was a stupid penalty from Charnley. Childish stuff.

    A marker should have the right to stand where the tackle was made and not budge an inch and the refs should uphold this right.

    I disagree. I think most people would be honest enough.

    Nobody is talking about the repeated late tackles on the England kicker.

    Hall scored. If Jennings did Hall did.


    England robbed.

    I thought the penalty was wrong, I thought he was square.

    Noticed that as well. Smith was one of the worst for it today. Didn't see it happen to the Aussies too much.

    If youre happy to say Hall grounded the ball, why not use the same standard of grounding on Inglis? He grounded it first, with more fingers and more oressure then Hall or Jennings.

    Meaning it can't be a try if Inglis has grounded it and made the ball dead. He was trying to knock it dead and failed at that, but still grounded the ball more then Hall or Jennings.

    Yeah, that Aussie team is full of flops.

    Every tackle in fact.

    Lmao, can't believe some of you actually believe that was a try? Even i was supporting England and thought no way was that a try. Even Hall got up without celebrating and was content for the drop out! Hall didn't claim it and probably would've been dumbstruck if he was awarded!

    Best I could get but clearly shows fingers being bent backwards after touching the ball. Also ball fully flat on contact.

    Why wasn't it a try? Explain. It is irrelevant whether a player celebrates, isn't it?

    Don't want to sound like sour grapes, feels like England blew it. I know Aus played much better 2nd half, but England went into their shells.

    Decision would have been just a bit easier to take from a neutral ref.

    I don't regard a pinky as downward pressure. NRL trys in the past like Barba's where he's grounded it with his fingernails should have never been trys as well

    As for whether it's "irrelevant whether a player celebrates", not really. It's a telling sign of how much pressure he placed on the ball. If he had downward pressure, why didn't he claim the try? If he actually did have downward pressure, I'd bet he'd gets up appealing.. but he didn't

    :lol:

    I've seen some bullshit posts today and this is right up there, are you Bernard Sutton? What f**king difference does it make which finger he grounds the ball with? :lol:

    Considering all VR decisions are based on slow mo to begin with it should of been awarded a try.

    Can the people arguing about the "downward pressure" nonsense explain to me how it is you apply "downward pressure" to an abject from it's side? I'd have thought the pressure needed to be coming from at least somewhere near the top.

    In any case, even if the video ref was feeling particularly charitable and decided for some reason to award a finger brushing the side of a ball on its way out as "downward pressure" you'd have to agree those sorts of decisions (because they do happen from time to time) don't really deserve to be awarded as a try.

    I poorly worded it.

    See above post. His pinky was basically brushing the side of the ball. There was no downward pressure from his pinky onto the ball. He essentially propelled it forward
