    While I agree OP, they don't even call minor infringements in situations like that in regular season games, eg the Raiders game in Dubbo(?) last year. No way they do it last night unfortunately.

    Of course they don't. It only happened in maybe 2 games this year. Broncos/Tigers being the big one.

    The kick dead is forgiven considering we were searching for some creative spark. And I doubt he could see much out of one eye. They did a close up on the big screen and it looked as though it had swollen shut. The same way I hope Canelo’s eye is swollen shut tomorrow...

    What did you think of May’s performance?

    Honestly barely noticed May. I would have had Egan as the 14 as he would do a better job at 9 than May giving Katoa his necessary rest.

    Good call OP. No disrespect to May but he stifled our attack when he was on. He’s not a dummy half and it showed off the bench when Katoa has to go off for his HIA. His service was poor and his pass accuracy was also poor and he overplayed his hand a couple of times. Although one of the calls that was a knock on looked backward at the ground. Will have to see how it looked in replay if I can bring myself to watch it.

    I’m still gutted.

    I don''t know If I said it on here but I used to think it was a mistake moving Moylan from FB to 5/8 because he would get more time from the back, boy was I wrong he stepped up this year as 5/8 and especially against us on two occasions, I think he should be NSW 5/8 next year if he keeps up this form.

    4th tackle second last set. Katoa goes down the short side for some f**king reason instead of sending a prop down the middle to set up a field goal attempt on 5th tackle.

    If Maloney didn't give away 10 brain dead penalties Katoa would have been our worst

    The game changer was the short 10m kickoff we were on a roll and all over the sharks.All we had to do was defend that and we win the game we didnt cronulla came up with the ball kicked the field goal a few mins later and we have mad monday this week.

    In May's defence he isn't a hooker.

    This markers not square with Waqa at dummy half was picked up in the SMH coverage of the game as well. As if Klein was going to just award us the game just like that.

    Played 9 minutes before halftime. Not much chance to impress and the coach didn't think he was the answer late in the game.

    They've got an off-season to make him one. Damien Cook will be the Kangaroos 9. He didn't cement a first grade place until this year, at 26. Katoa is 23.

    He can be our back up hooker.

    Egan with a full pre-season. Egan is the player Katoa should be and was pre Wallace retirement. Throws a no look pass but it's accurate, has a kicking game, good running game and is a good defender.

    The commentary today mentioned ISP stopped playing through the ruck and we lost our advantage. Funny that's right when Egan went off.

    I also have no doubt the club won't buy a hooker so these two are our options.
