Kallum Watkins>Latrell Mitchell
I can't say that I've seen it
But the grading was different, so if it was the same all I can do is point at the inconsistency of the review process.
Unfortunately, we live in an imperfect World. Video evidence of something going wrong is sketchy at best. Look at all those tackles from 3 or 4 years ago where the video ref was talking to the on field ref and teams were gaining penalties for any contact with the face at all, no matter how slight. As long as the player stayed down a penalty after contact was made with the head, a penalty was awarded.
Arms brush faces in umpteen tackles. They are not worthy of a penalty as they're not foul play. We got ourselves to the point where it was farcical because we were trying to judge the level of impact from a tv screen. Thankfully people cracked the shits so much we moved away from it.
I am not going to say Dugan faked an injury, but he was fine seconds later and the on-field referee didn't see enough to put Mitchell on report at the time. A penalty was awarded on the day, that should have been the end of it in my opinion.
But others have a different opinion. I get that and I am prepared to live with the decision we have.
There's no point worrying about what has happened. Play on son, the game is there to be won.
I get it - I don't think he was hurt. You do.
Difference of opinion.
I will live with the outcome. Fingers crossed Latrell doesn't do anything daft the next time he plays, such as jumping up to get downward pressure on the player he was tackling. That was really his crime and you're spot on about the unneccessary risk
There were two other players there. Dugan was wrapped up. There was no need for Latrell to do that.
I guess that's why I am disappointed in the outcome and not outraged. Deep down, I know it was stupid.
Nah I dunno how hurt he was, he said it frightened him a bit being in that situation, but my point was any injury he did or didn't get doesn't come into it.
I want the best players playing the best games mate so I'm not really cheering his suspension, does f**kall for my team now too.
Hopefully the Roosters will beat Souths even without having Latrell playing, and then it will be "Hello Latrell" for the Grand Final, when once again Latrell owns the bitch Chambers.
Alby getting all meow with bitchy Chambers.
Why are you automatically assuming we will play Souths?
Don't get me wrong, I would love for Latrell to feature in a Grand Final, but don't write Saints off
Saints cannot win without their star British five eighth, Gareth Widdop. The lad from Halifax, England, who came through the Melbourne Storm juniors system, is too important for the St. George-Illawarra team to be without him. They will be rudderless. Souths will beat Saints comfortably. It will then be a grinding battle of the forwards between the Roosters and the Rabbitohs.
Catch ya, Will
Mitchell: Will, introduce yourself
Will Chambers will be having nightmares about Latrell Mitchell throughout the off season.
Chambers is absolute puss. Has had a shocking year.
For you, @The_Shield
Godtrell has ruined chamberpot.
Now whenever chamberpot is remembered it will literally be for his continuous shit house performances against the great Godtrell.
People overrating Latrells perform, what a surprise. He did two things the whole game, 1- he stepped Chambers to score an easy try & 2- he took Chambers into touch after Chambers received a shit pass from Croft that turned him around and left him with no chance. Other then those two moments Latrell did absolutely nothing. Now granted Chambers didn’t play well but people are way overrating the game Latrell had, I mean come on, did he even touch the ball other then when he scored the try?
Lol latrelly smashed him... again
Chambers was beaten before he walked on the field. Clearly intimidated by Mitchell and it showed.
Package it how you want Shield but the truth hurts....
Chambers is a true beta, you can just tell by the look on his face that he is dead scared of alpha Latrell.
Mitchell - 59 metres - 10 post contact metres - 4 tackle breaks - 1 offload - 11 tackles
Chambers - 105 metres - 29 post contact metres - 3 tackle breaks - 1 offload - 16 tackles
Yeah Will must be terrified. Now I know that Chambers ain’t gunna get any respect from anyone here but you people gotta stop kissing Latrells arse like he’s the second coming of Jesus or something.
