This refers to the wrongly awarded try for Oldfield in the Sea Eagles win over Cowboys.
On reviewing the decision the NRL have concluded the video ref got it wrong as neutral observers of this game saw at the time.
That this happened at all is regrettable, That it happened during such an important game is unforgivable.
Perhaps the most useful tip came from one of the match commentators who said that while it was clear in slow motion (almost frame by frame) there had been a knock on, by running the video at normal speed the evidence of a knock on was there clearly to see in the effect the attackers touch had on the ball.
Cowboys fans must be devastated.
Jonathan Thurston rose further in my estimation by his representations of complaint to the ref while somehow keeping his dignity and focus. The expressions on his face of exasperation spoke volumes though.
This happened at a key part of the game and robbed Cowboys.
Not good enough.
Hard luck Cowboys.
