    Need I say more?

    Anyone with a working eye or two saw what happened tonight.

    The Roosters had to win didn't they?

    Onto 2020, if you can be bothered to stick around. Most fans won't.

    You assign a dipshit like Cummins to referee a Grand Final, you may just get everything you ask for.

    Why would the NRL prefer the Roosters to win?

    Only have themselves to blame for referee appointments when Cecchin is having a holiday

    Even though Cummins was the lead ref in both decisions I reckon both were make by Sutton. How Cecchin wasn't lead ref is beyond me anyway.

    Ref calls six to go. Changes his mind. Ch 9 broad caster hardly mentions it. It changed the whole game. They scored on the same set of six. Fkn over it !!

    Yup Cummins and coach's son are the best hatchet men in the business. Just a question of whether they split the try assists or not.

    In fairness channel 9 did show a replay and Gould made comment to say the ref marking the ten signalled 6 to go before changing his mind about 5 seconds later after Canberra played to the original decision.

    Anyway, yes RL has a bit of a grave to dig themselves out of after tonight and not to mention ticket prices. $40 for GA tickets to Leichhardt in round 25. Gimme a break

    Absolutely disgusting. Completely ruined a great game and sunk the hearts of millions of followers right into the pit of our guts.
    How many times have we heard that a decision can't be reversed once it's made? Well except tonight ey.

    The commentators did mention it but if there was any justice they would be blowing up about it. If the integrity of the game matters at all that is.

    The only decent thing the NRL can do now is sack the ref, never to be seen again and apologise sincerely to all fans of rugby league for what is an outrage.

    That won't be enough but it is the absolute least they can do.

    What a hollow victory for the Roosters.
    They will probably become one of the most hated teams in the comp now.

    What a tragedy.

    On balance Cooper sin bin was also a bad call. Not saying it's fair but it wasn't all in roosters favour.

    The trainer call and scrum going to rooster rule needs to change

    If that rule stands regarding hitting the trainer, we can expect to see that taken advantage of.

    MoM goes to the Easts doctor - saved 6 points and setup the play for a try

    Isn't this the second time a official signalled a incorrect signal that effected a Canberra result directly

    And all these commentators singing the praises of the Roosters are burying their credibility.

    It was the only call they got right in all honesty. Cronk took Pappali’s (spelling) arms out of play hence not giving him a fair chance to catch the ball

    Hahaha hahaha.

    Roosters were gifted the 2013 GF in the 2nd half, and no-one gave a shit.

    Interesting to see the sway of public opinion change....
    Maybe if some cracking dodgy ref calls were called out 6 years ago, we may have had a much better standard of refereeing tonight.

    Decisions went both ways! The call didn’t cost the Raiders the match, the Roosters goal line defence was the difference.

    And that comes from a Penrith supporter that despises Cummins!
