  1. All well and good but the fact is Penalty try's are rarely awarded even when the player is already over the try line before the foul play takes place. I can't remember the last time a penalty try was given for contact 5 yards out from the try line and in such close proximity to the touchline, maybe someone on here can allude to any examples of this. I'm not saying I agree it is just a fact, so they were never going to give a penalty try in the Grand Final in these circumstances. At least Moore referred it and asked for the video refs view on the merits of a penalty try.
  2. If it was that simple we would see penalty tries given far more frequently but they aren't. Can you answer why Garcia (direct Head contact on Lomax) wasn't a yellow card or an 8 point try and a yellow for Yaha weren't given.
  3. The photo also shows that his body is going towards the touch line from the original contact. It is not 100% certain that he wouldn't have gone into touch so can't give a penalty try. The only penalty trys I see given is when a player is already over the line when the foul play is committed. It was reviewed by the video ref and he agreed with the ref.
  4. What about the knees to the head from Yaha or the early high shot by Garcia on Lomax, under the current rules both are yellow card offences but both went unpunished. Tomkins was playing for a penalty and rightly penalised. Makinson contact was originally on the arm and momentum plus Yaha falling had an influence on where Makinson ended up. Penalty yes, penalty try never as he was going out from the original contact. Yellow harsh given that Garcia got away with one. Both teams can point to decisions that went against them in the game but unfortunately Guasch has thrown his toys out of his pram
  5. How does Makinson get binned and Garcia not? Total inconsistency. Moore doing his best for Catalan
  6. Occasionally you might make a good point if it wasn't for all the other s&&t you spout
  7. Dwyer every time slides in with the knees after the tackle is complete and puts his hand on the ball yet gets away with it.
  8. All the Wire fans booing when a KR player goes down injured to stop momentum I'm sure they have employed that tactic themselves somewhere this season

  10. Quite entertaining but it is high in errors and poor on quality. On this showing none of these should be anywhere near the play offs.
  11. Every decision going Wire way at the moment should have been a penalty against Hill.
  12. Thaler again has to be centre of attention and he's not even on the pitch. To over turn the try their has to be conclusive evidence, awful decision imo.
  13. They had more of the possession in the first half and Saints made considerably more tackles so that comment makes no sense. When they had a lot less in the second half they failed to score a point.
  14. How did they manage to get a team across last night after being unable to play Warrington a few days ago due to a covid outbreak?? . Stinks of not wanting to ruin their win percentage to me or am I just being to sceptical
  15. Don't worry Lam will be gracious and dignified in defeat just like he always is you'd think he would be getting the hang of it with all the games they have lost this season.
  16. Not to mention the number times they got the players names involved in the play wrong and even called Cas Catalans at one point... Bring back Eddie and Stevo
  17. I think the red card was right, not sure about Bentley yellow not a lot in the tackle on McShane he is niggly but not a yellow card offence. Matautia had to go for rushing in as he had already been warned. Just that he gets more airtime in one game than the rest of the refs put together. Imo good refs manage the game effectively without drawing all the attention.
  18. You don't see referring like that in the NRL, they stamp their authority without the need to be centre of attention unfortunately Thaler has to make it all about him.
  19. Not saying players are not to blame but Thaler always has to be centre of attention in every game I have watched him ref.
  20. Well done Cas deservedly winning this game but Ben Thaler at it again, just wants to be the centre of attention all the time. The worst ref in super league how he is still a professional ref is beyond me.
  21. But King then gets up runs 40 yards to his goal line before going down to stop play, if he was genuinely injured seriously he would have stayed were the injury occurred. but play wouldn't have been stopped then would it. No other explanation but Gamesmanship, as others have said being made to set out for a set or two will soon separate the genuinely injured from those exploiting the rules to reset their defensive line when under pressure. Funny how all the wire injuries seemed to happen when they were under pressure on their own line. Just a coincidence??
  22. To be fair Warrington did stop the game a number of times when they were defending their line with so called injuries. Like watching Catalans a few years ago who were Masters at it. Toby King ran back 40 yards on one occasion to collapse on his line to make sure the ref had to stop the play.
  23. Saints deservedly well beat but I don't think either sin bins were correct. Both Cas players stayed down to make it look worse than it was and yet were absolutely fine to carry on, Lees was also clearly off the shoulder and into the head whereas Makinson caught a high shot flush in the head from Milner yet got straight up. I think the reaction of the injured?? players influenced the refs decision.
