Have to agree Carl, though Gavrilova has a better ranking it has taken a slide from 35-58 since January, so she may not have done better. Besides personal gain the girls will have something to play for throughout the year leading up to the final, that is to impress Molik. Will be interesting to see develop and play out come November.

Can Molik solve the Stosur problem?

I remembered those scenes from the 80s. Didnt know that was the reason why we have what we have.

Yes.

At least the cowboys would have got a set of 6 at 12 men which they deserved from the kaufusi penalty

Exactly, a penalty in the 70th minute allows for a full set a penalty late in the 80th as happened last night does not. Currently as occured last night the consequences of the penalties are different and thus already treated differently. My suggestion gives it consistency

But they did give away a penalty

Rupa just doing what they are obligated to do. Much like a Union rep.

Players association releases Folau statement

Unlike rugby, league sets of 6 place a limit on possession and therefore time, where as in rugby possession is unlimited if your good enough to keep the ball hence games going well over the 80 minutes.

Kaufusi knowing what he was doing was exactly the point, he knew he could give away a pentalty knowing it will help run the clock down with no real disincentive for doing so.

Your right, just robbed of the full set of 6 tackles from the penalty.

All happening in Canberra!!
Was ScoMo there with his Sharks cap?

But there was a penalty given 24 second left in the game and they only got another 2 tackles in from the ensuing set of 6 from said penalty.
If the Storm give away a penalty after full time then they get to play out that set of six as well….the answer is stop giving away penalties. The onus is on the players to not infringe, and if they do so its on them. What i think would have happened as Melbourne’s defence was very good last night is they would have tackled the game out, roughly 10 seconds per tackle with 4 tackles remaining after the final siren. The game finishes at 80mins and 40 sec.

Apology accepted only if you tip me a winner!

No, just the full set of 6 they got from that penalty.

finished in 99′ that fits into the last 20 years. C’mon he was my favourite horse before Winx and after Super Impose! Breaking my heart!

Hey Watda, Melbourne may have deserved their win but “the best case scenario” became improbable because of the current rules and how Melbourne were able to take advantage of that.

Geoff, it was frustrating viewing wasnt it. Letting the set of 6 naturally conclude after the 80min siren at least takes the incentive away to deliberately infringe the play the ball to run down the clock.

Agree David, its not a race I will enjoy too much as I hope she gets around safe and hopefully salutes.

Winx must win on Saturday, being beaten is unthinkable

Cheers Waxhead,

one point that I didn’t think of, that was made in the comments section of the article by Daniel Jeffrey, and i am paraphrasing, was that if you work for Optus, sure you have the freedom to go and tell customers to join the other telcos but you would justifiably get fired.

“life’s too short to get bogged down in internet comment sections..” Wait till the articles about Folau being given one more chance! Hope not though.

Love the speculating, what makes sport interesting. Hey, at least he isn’t telling gay people they are going to hell!

Can a Warner change his spots?

As its hard to be friends with a Manly supporter I can only imagine this would stretch the friendship.

Rugby union would be a more inclusive, kinder place without Israel Folau and his backwards views

I must say Warner will get picked.

Can a Warner change his spots?

Hi Bob, he did the crime and did his time. And his form in the IPL is nothing to be scoffed at, and he would be an asset. Though do you think he is a danger to team harmony? Also Usman’s form at opener, could be a good replacement if he doesnt get picked. Maybe he has more balanced game to open. Doesn’t go the tonk as early!

Respectable discourse, the pollies could learn from us!!

Can a Warner change his spots?

I have the same pessimism
