They did have a doctor come on? Dr Tevita Pangai JrThis is not going away. Read the SMH article if you have access. It says the rule now is that you can only stop play if you need a Dr to enter the field of play.
Swings and roundabouts, but it shines a light on Pennys who on one hand are seeking protection for their 7 with a bung shoulder, yet are happy to be the merkin and when it comes to stopping play to stifle momentum.
Yep, it’s only a rort when you’re not in on it.

That should meanthe touch judge / ref is in trouble as well. They should know that the trainer has to be with the injured player to make an assessment.
Yeah that will do us a world of good lol.
We were sorted. It is amazing how quick Annersley comes out against us (vs Roosters and against Manly last year) but he can't see anything wrong this time.
If the trainer approached the touch judge to stop play before attending to the player than the officials is also at fault by disregarding the procedure.Who gives a f**k it’s not like it’s going to change the result, the Panther trainer took a risk and got away with it. Good luck to him. We are a very naive football team we seem to be on the ends of this stuff all the time.
