Ok. It is round 6 and there has been som interesting results this year.

First coach to be fired could take some more rounds.  I cannot see any of the bottom sides getting rid of anyone.

Dark horse could be Manly if the inconsistency continues and they miss out too on top 8.

I'm no wrap for Darius Boyd but I love the audio when he was called out by Klein to 'explain' the Slater 'try'

Boyd can be seen laughing at Klein saying 'this is going to be good ....' to which Klein responds 'No, No he had intent and he's allowed to drop kick it' all you can hear is Boyd just say 'Wow!'

It's about the only response you could give for such a flawed decision.

All this while vision of Slater is being played telling his team mates that it will be no try as he dropped it.

Anyone that has followed RL for 5 minutes would say that's a knock on  :bulb:

Todd Greenburg will go down as the man who presided over the NRL and drove it to ruin.  :wavecry:

So what's the story? :what: :what:

From what I could hear Josh Reynolds was on the line with Fox for the Souths V Canberra game on the same day that West Tigers are playing.

I think he was excused from having to travel up to Tamworth.

P.S. Had the game on the TV and was glancing at it. Took me 20 minutes to work out that Benji wasn't wearing a Black and Gold jersey. Not sure what the f. that was about  :what:

In times gone by the conversion kick was taken according to the following

A kick at goal after a try may be taken from any point
on an imaginary line drawn parallel to the touch line
in the field of play and through the point where the try
was awarded.


These days the  kicks are taken from anywhere the kicker wishes.

Most recent  example was when Rein just scored in this match adjacent to the upright not between the posts.

Yet the conversion kick was taken about a yard wide of the black dot at the centre of the posts.

Your kidding surely Auth  :what:

Play it in full, Nappa goes up to make a tackle and Sims puts on a sidestep which causes Nappa to be out of position causing the accidental head clash.

It's neither a sin bin or a penalty  emthdown

Should have been knock on, Roosters scrum feed.

Once again the refs influencing the results of matches  emthdown

 :no:

It only ended up like that due to Sims sidestep.

While it won't help the Roosters from last night, Nappa has escaped sanction.

Brisbane got lucky again however with the injuries etc they had it was a good effort. The draw is more favourable over next few weeks so it will be interesting if they can challenge for a top 4.

Can one of you Northerners please explain the constant salary cap issues that go on in League?  Didn't Woods just move to the Bulldogs not long ago, now looking at going to Cronulla?  Have League club administrators heard of Excel?

Greed mate. Pure and simple. They tweak the system to get the best short term benefit and ignore the long term

I thought you were talking to people north of the harbour bridge   :lol:

Salary Caps will never work. There are more favourable terms for some clubs over others. AFL people would be aware of the rules applied to NSW and Qld vs. the rest of the country. Not too dissimilar here with Qld clubs and Souths getting away with blue murder.....

Geez that one hung out there for over an hour without a bite   :lol:

Are Sam Burgess' TV contracts and Greg Inglis' "Indigenous Ambassador" salaries counted toward the cap  :what:

I think youíll find they are mate but I stand to be corrected

Given that the NRL refuse us any 3rd parties that Crowe is involved, we are harshly treated.
Uncle Nick Politis uses his contacts for 3rd parties and itís all okay :chin:

I see Brisbane have got their hometown Friday Night refs back.

They have destroyed the game with less than 20 minutes played.  emthdown

A couple of dubious ones in the leadup to 20-0 - Joey was onto them.  ;)

And in the earlier match:

NRL admits touch judge erred on controversial Katoa try

The NRL admitted the decision by a touch judge to raise his flag in the lead-up to a controversial try was wrong and promised a review of the incident that cost the Raiders in their 28-24 loss to Cronulla on Friday night.

While Canberra coach Ricky Stuart expressed fears rugby league is losing fans due to dramas related to match and review officials, an NRL spokesperson confirmed Sione Katoa's controversial four-pointer [57th minute] will be reviewed after the Referees Bunker overturned the on-field decision of 'no try'.

....

"But we've ruined the first 14 rounds of the competition. We've lost fans, I know so many people who have turned off rugby league because of it.

"But then halfway through the year Todd [NRL boss Todd Greenberg] comes out and says he told the referees to stop nit-picking.

"We're the only sport in the world that changes interpretations midway through the year.


https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/07/20/nrl-admits-touch-judge-erred-in-match-between-canberra-raiders-and-cronulla-sharks/

I'm one of the fans that is "turned off rugby league" like Ricky says. Tonight was the first game I've watched in ages.

The refs are too inconsistent.

I can cop the odd mistake.

But it is the interpretative stuff that is inconsistent.

As everybody knows, some teams are allowed to lie on the players in the play-the-ball area for longer than others. It is as simple as that.

I would rather see the game slow down and that they get rid of those penalties rather than continue to go how they are going.

NRL continues to confuse me more and more each day.

Anthony Griffen sacked from the Panthers while 5th and pretty much certainties to make the finals.  Why would they do this?

Skyb - Phil Gould is the director of football for the Panthers, he pulls the strings.

Before a ball was even kicked this season there was talk that Griffin was in trouble, had lost the young captain through the off season etc and big rumour of a half time blow up with Gus.

Skyb - heard Gould described today as the Lloyd Williams of the NRL - calls the shots & pulls the strings but doesn't put his name in the book.

Pretty accurate really  :chin:

Agree and I don't know why Cleary would sell his soul to go back there.

Terrific interview with Griffin on NRL360 last night. Said the only reason he got sacked is because he and Gus don't get on.

All the other stuff being spun by Gould is just complete bull$hit.
