You’ve articulated better than I did. It was the quickness of the shut down and then the next minute allowing them to play. The really crazy thing that happened was the cancelling of a VFL game after it started, it was just silly. I’m all for these so called snap lockdowns but I think we’re getting to the stage where the various premiers are trying to outdo each other in who can take it the most seriously. I imagine once we get a single case in Tasmania that we’re going into a week long lock down inside 12 hours

Bellamy sees MCG grand final as shot in arm for NRL down south

That’s kind of how I’m starting to see it. the Qld government has shown they really don’t value the NRL…

I reckon even a dyed in the wool victorian would know who the bunnies are – they would have come across plenty of toothless random bunnies jersey wearers in their time

With the way sydney is going he’ll be spending a fair bit of time in qld yet…

Can South Sydney bring back the old Anthony Milford?

The Eels attack is really quite terrible, isn’t it. They remind me of a Bulldogs game I was watching a while back. Catch and pass with no line engagement with the alternative play being the ball behind to the halves – with this play breaking down entirely during the first half as noted defensive liability Walker was able to shut it down almost singlehandedly.

It gets some fans frothing, but NRL transfer speculation bores me to tears

I only started watching this side of Superleague so I’ll take your word for it…

Crash and burn time: 'I can't imagine the trauma of being one of the Blue and Gold faithful'

That’s pretty much the way I see it. The expectations of the 300k man vs the $1m man are completely different

Or hard earned thirst

I think it’s ironic BA using such simple stats because most sports have moved on from the basics to much more detailed analyses that try to understand quality rather than just quantity…

Crash and burn time: 'I can't imagine the trauma of being one of the Blue and Gold faithful'

I reckon stats are only good in baseball. The reason is because of how many games there and even within games you can break down each and every play into it’s own little compartments. It just doesn’t work in the NRL the same

Celebratory bbq anyone? I hear the food is amazing

Vaughan thrown NRL lifeline after signing new one-year deal

One security person each.

Why are NRL players STILL being shut out of the biggest decisions?

That’s the ticket isn’t it. Surely the powers to be should have allowed players to nominate to be selected initially to understand the player’s interest levels

Taumalolo is in! Huge plus as Tongan star commits to World Cup

The tennis thing is not entirely comparable because they are all essentially sole traders and can make a choice independently

Why are NRL players STILL being shut out of the biggest decisions?

Without To’o as well now. Not boding well for them at the moment

This weekend's three four-pointers could define the NRL season

And they were wrong.

Big boppers, two wrongs and a one-eyed play: NRL Round 19 talking points

I should have included the rules just before those criteria:

An offside player shall not take any part in the game or
attempt in any way to influence the course of the game. He
shall not encroach within ten metres of an opponent who is
waiting for the ball and shall immediately retire ten metres from any opponent who first
secures possession of the ball.

So he encroached within 10 metres before the Raiders touched the ball ie was attempting to influence the game well and truly before anyone touched the ball

He was never placed onside.

An offside player is placed onside if:
(a) an opponent moves ten metres or more with the ball.
(b) an opponent touches the ball without retaining it.
(c) one of his own team in possession of the ball runs in front
of him.
(d) one of his own team kicks or knocks the ball forward and
takes up a position in front of him in the field of play.
(e) he retires behind the point where the ball was last touched
by one of his own team, or to his own in- goal.

None of these happened

I can’t recall but did the try go upstairs as a no try anyway? So that to me was a big part of the issue for that one. They overturned on it on very flimsy evidence
