The slo-mo only emphasised what was already obvious from the full speed replay and the original vision. He lost control of the ball. Knock on 24/7 365.

On what metric?

It was a tricky one. The tackle was horrible technique and asking for trouble. I think the one mitigating factor was that Papalii’s weight didn’t land directly on Kikau’s leg – he actually landed a couple of centimetres off Kikau’s ankle, but on Weekes’ leg, which landed on Kikau’s leg. Still arguably too light a suspension for the potential danger of the tackle.

Also tricky – There was a tackle by Kikau on Cotric about five minutes from the end, where Kikau grabbed the back of Cotric’s jersey and sat down – then slid with forceful contact of his hip directly onto Cotric’s ankle. From the brief definition from the rules that I read (shared by jimmmy in an earlier thread) that tackle met the criteria for a hip drop. No penalty. No charge. NRL still has some sorting out to do if they want to eradicate this from the game.

The rule is both feet behind the ball as it’s kicked. But he was possibly 10cm offside. Not sure why we’d want the bunker to check on that.

I missed that one live so I just had a look at the replay. If you freeze frame the point of the kick it’s possible that Savage’s front foot is maybe half the length of his foot in front of the ball… But also maybe not… camera angles, perspective and all.

Yeah. Strange is a ripper isn’t he?

100% Mushi. You think Queensland hates us? Wait till there’s a team in WA!

I was surprised and impressed by Weekes’ kicking game. We all knew he was a very good ball runner, but his kicks were well chosen and well executed.

Ah, Trell, Trell, Trell… Not doing himself any favours again. Any of us who do anything in the public sphere sometimes find our work getting panned in the press. Usually we think it’s unfair – and sometimes it actually is. But the only way to address it is keep doing what you do, and do it well enough that the critics have to eat their words. Mitchell at his best is an enormous talent. I really hope he can find a way to rediscover some form, stay out of the headlines and let his footy do the talking.

Desperation? Fifita expresses some hesitation and they pull his contract. That looks more like confidence than desperation.

I don’t support either team and watched the game. Both teams were poor. Warriors at times were abysmal. I reckon the Bunnies would have beat them yesterday. The tackle in the air not being a penalty try, while a tough call, is at least consistent. The rationale being that the defending player was in position to save the try by making a legal tackle – but the tackle that eventuated wasn’t legal.
As for folks complaining about the obstruction no try, it’s hard to figure out what they think an obstruction is if it’s not running directly into the centre of the chest of a defender who is in a position to be involved in the tackle. If that’s not an obstruction then nothing is.

Spot on FT. Garrick is a repeat offender for not passing the ball to an open team mate. Last night it cost them the game. Along with his 3 missed conversions.

I’d be happy with either of them tbh. Both in great form. Really depends how the coach wants the team to play. They are both great, but very different styles.

I’d like to see them stick with Sandon Smith. I reckon he’s got the goods and is a good balance to Walker.

I totally get why it’s a sin bin, but I actually felt bad for Host. He was trying his guts out to put in an effort play when half his team mates had thrown in the towel and he got the timing wrong.

Milne only getting 2 weeks for that was crazy.
