Edwards is underrated because all anyone sees is attack. Fullback isn't just an attacking position. Edwards has it all over every one of them in his positioning for kicks, his coverage of the in-goal, and his safety under the high ball. He doesn't beat tackles like some others do but he backs up line breaks as good as anyone.
Still scratching my head how the Gagai try was given. Sent up as no try and still can't see how there was enough to over rule the call
Braith Anasta was in the bunker.
And I thought the pass from Walker for their last try went forward - need another look to see whether it was out of the hands or floated though.
I thought the Gagai try was ok. There was one angle that looked pretty clear, but it was one if those ones that'd needed slow mo to be given. The Allen try looked worse to me. Reckon his hands overran the ball.
Their first try was the set after a bullshit penalty and the one on one strip was line ball at best.
I was fine with that because it went up as a try. I thought both were 50/50 and had to stay with the onfield call
To’o is why I’m not concerned about us soon losing Mansour’s meters.
He might just be the best backup runner in the comp. I kinda wished it rubbed off on some of our other players, obviously it’s a bit easier for a FB to pop up all over the place, but support play is a really important aspect of the game.
No charges were laid from last nights game. Ripper.
I agree, thought he was amazing. Even the first try we scored after the Johnston knock on, not many wingers score that, he had three to beat and got through them all. His runs out of our own end were also incredible.
He was a close second behind Api for MOTM for mine.
I'd love to lose the compulsory once (often twice or thrice) a game brain fart that Mansour provides.
The highlight of this game, and perhaps the season, was watching Yeo beat Nichols and Cook all ends up with footwork to charge into the open to set Edwards up. Nichols is a plodder as we all know but Cook's defensive weakness exposed yet again here. Still, he's a sharp dummy half runner so I guess you live with his lazy defence.
I notice Annesley didn't look at the strip on Edwards although he did look at the Reynolds non-40/20 which was 100% clear cut. This I suspect can only mean one thing. We didn't squeal loud enough.
I don't have audio, what was said about the non-40/20 kick?
There was no stoppage in the game for him to look at the strip and they dont do a review of strips/knockons automatically in any case.
It’s highly likely the video refs tipped the ref off to look as the tv was showing Reynolds foot on the line and there was a break in play
Which is why Annesley could have looked at it in his briefing, unless the outcome wasn't favourable that is. The ball was obscured in the footage shown on TV.
They played the refs audio, the touchie clearly called it as outside the 40 the second the kick left the boot. It was more information only, there was nothing at all controversial about this call.
