    Not quite. Under the changed rule, several defenders can reef at the ball and arms. As long as all bar one let go at the moment the ball pops out it's all good. Then the ref has to, in real time, make sure that one of the other defender's fingernail isn't touching the ball carrier.

    That's why I don't have a problem with Harris-Whatsisname getting penalised. He was all over the ball while Blair had hold of him but managed to release him just as the job had been done. It wouldn't really matter how secure the ball is with every man and his dog having a tug at it.

    Have you gone off Righty? Or did you get Lefty one too many times?

    And yeah, it can't stay as is. Just unworkable.

    No, the reason you didn't have a problem with it was because it went against the Warriors and benefited the Eels. The ref f**ked up and we got the reward.

    I don't mind that it went against the Worriers. How can the ref see with any certainty that the ball came out at the precise moment the other defender didn't have a fingernail on the ball carrier. He didn't f*ck it up. The rule is f*cked and unworkable.

    Well the ref did get it wrong so yes he did f**k up. But I agree that sometimes it’s hard for the ref to gauge

    That's why it's f*cked and unworkable. A lottery.

    Agree but I think that at the time the ball was stripped Blairs chest but not his arms was in contact with Brown. How do they expect referees to adjudicate on that.

    THe tackle by Jake was as bad if not worse than Lukes. The NRL judiciary system is a joke with its inconsistancies,

    An embarrassment. So confusing trying understand what the refs and judiciary are doing at the moment. Might as well have @hindy111 in charge.
