    Back the day, I remember a Penrith player knocking on, getting pissed off and booting the ball towards the oppositions goal line from 70 metres out. The ref made them walk to the other end of the field to collect the ball and then penalised him for mouthing off.
    Can’t remember who the ref was but seems like a Billy Harrigan thing to do

    Really quite pathetic because it's a textbook open and shut case of an obstruction. Scott has not committed to any tackle, he's come up in the line in his position, held his ground, has an eye on the ball and the decoy runner just charges straight into him.

    From memory Ryan Sutton got penalised twice in one match (Souths) for a carbon copy of this.

    Edit - I think one of them was even an 'inside shoulder' obstruction.

    Yep re Sutton.

    Hence the anger towards this miss.

    ‘It’s ok guys it was an accident’ Ashley Klien decides its play on after a Reynolds crusher tackle.

    Klein had a fair shocker both ways

    He missed two stone cold offsides and a lifting tackle

    That's outside his new interpretation of the crusher

    so it’s not actually a rule, just an interpretation?

    Wait.. what? No penalty or anything?

    99% of "crusher tackles" these days are accidental.

    Pretty sure they've changed interpretation again:


    Bad defence aside, apparently you CAN run behind your own players again.

    Agreed. He's no better than he was on the field. Or coaching the refs.

    You’ve always been allowed to run behind a player as long as they aren’t in the defensive line or impeding a player . You can’t catch a ball behind a player or run from one side of a player to the other . Pretty sure people who whinge about this need to learn the rules

    Ponga caught the ball on the inside of a lead runner, so there is that.
