Thought there was a tackle around the head/neck that probably should have been a free.

WATCH: 'What a joke!' Tex blows up at ump over hugely controversial last second non-call

This used to be a penalty, players from the attacking team assisting the tackler (second tackle). Happens nearly every time a player is held up with players from both sides pushing the tackled player. Robbo only complaining because a try was scored. Remember another rule that is still on the books, anyone remember when a player was penalised foir a voluntary tackle in the NRL?

'F--- me, he's on another planet': Stuart rips into Hasler after Titans coach fumes at referee calls in golden-point thriller

On the offside play, Annesley has come out and said he was. Should have been a penalty to the Titans. Then again, since the introduction of golden point, how often have we seen a penalty in a kickable position given, very rare. Referees need to get back to refereeing the game and not trying to manage it (for the broadcasters?).
On the six again, get rid of it. It’s a penalty and should be called as such.

I have no issues with his coming to rugby but at 28 his contract should be performance based.

Rooster must remodel: Angus Crichton says he'd want to 'dominate' in rugby union - this is what he'd have to change

Agree but a change I would like to see is that each state has one vote at RA. If NSW and Qld want something, they have the numbers to un it through regardless.

The only mitigation I could see was that the player aggressively bashed the back of his head into the Drua player’s elbow.

Young’;s send off was fine. It was high and hit the player in the head. I thought Radley unlucky. Don’t even think it was worth a penalty.

Young send-off 'over the top', Radley sin-bin 'ridiculous' says Robbo as Roosters reduced to 11 on nightmare night

On games being managed, totally agree. Referees need to go back to refereeing the game and not trying to manage the game.

One of those things or not, it was high and May should have had a case to answer. Not deliberate but it was careless.

On then Rebels, a decision has to be made and made soon. To keep them or ditch them. There is too much uncertainty and negative reporting about what will happen. As well, what happens to the players if the Rebels go.

Agrede. I hate this replacing players just to give the bench a run. Bring players off if injured or not playing well but not just to give a player run on time. Tahs have a bad habit of doing this.

No, Bloodsport was a Jean Clause Van Damme film.

Marnus is having a lean time but nothingf will be done as there are no tests until November. All we can hope for here is that he plays Shield cricket and gets runs before the next test. Smith is not an opener, Renshaw or Bancroft should have been looked at for the Windies tests. The selectors have dug a hole for themselves. They can’t drop Green and put Smith back to 4, Green is doing just too good.

Long time to go before next season but Head may be one who needs to improve in test cricket. He bats well in an attacking style but he has been getting himself out playing the wrong shot at the wrong time. In 16 innings he has passed 50 twice. Only bringing this up because the other option, on form, is to drop Smith or to move him down the batting line up to 5. Intersesting times ahead but I don’t think the selectors will change anything.

Test Mortem: Aussie aura living rent free in Kiwi minds, Marnus officially in a form slump, DRS needs review

Thedre are problems with the top order. Marnus is out of form but Smith has not been great either as an opener. Yes, he scored a 90 against the Windies but his other scores as an opener haven’t been great. Nothing will happen this series, the selectors will keep the status quo. But changes need to happen in the future. Three of our bowlerts are wqell into their 30s with Cummins being 30. Smith and Uzzi are well into their 30s as well. Playing Smith as an opener was a mistake. Players with a few years in front of them would have been a better choice. This would have been the perfect time to give a couple of our young quicks a start.

COMMENT: Horrendously out of form or not, Australia would be mad to ditch Marnus now

Maybe but whatr about the good will in playing the Windies.

Australia vs New Zealand Test series deserves greater fanfare than a March through autumn clash with footy codes

I think its more to do with the ICC than Australia. Personally, I would have preferred this to have been played earlier and like the Windies, a crying shame it is only a two test series. These should be dcone away with and series should be a minimum of three tests.
