    Lolohea is definitely shit.
     
  2. Tupou dropped that.
     
  3. Tui Lolohea looks more like Tubby Lolohea.

    Pangai is gonna be a superstar. We HAVE to retain him beyond next year

    Surely Pangai has no case to answer. That shouldn't even be a penalty.

    if that is the standard they are going to ref to next year, we will see a thousand potential 8 pt tries

    Now that Slater has retired, they can finally start penalising it.
     
  10. He won't be suspended but it was the right call.

    He still makes contact with the head with the foot. It doesn't have to be intentional to be a penalty.

    Sutton explained it well. He should have got down on his hands and knees.

    That’s where common sense should come into effect, he had absolutely no chance to get down to his knees at the speed he was travelling.

    TPJ will probably play out the game in the halves. He's almost been the best on field imo

    Hopefully Joe has more of an impact in the 2nd half
     
  14. He did, but he chose to keep on running.

    When he was running across and he saw Holmes going into score, that's when he should have done it but he chose not to.

    If he gets down to his knees he gets penalised for deliberately kneeling him and probably does a shitload more damage to Holmes. You can't help a bloke diving at your feet.

  16. If he dives with the knees late and hits Holmes in the head without first contacting the ground, yeah he does.

    If he does it early which is what Sutton suggested he should have done and makes contact with the ground first, he doesn't. That's why Storm didn't get a possible 8 point try in the GF when Addo-Carr scored.

    I’ve seen teams penalised before for leading with the knees even with their knees contacting the ground first

    We got an 8-point try for a similar incident versus the Cowboys. Lodge got kneed. 100% the correct call.

    In that instance, Martin slid in with his legs. Pangai tripped over a guy who dived at his feet.

    Kaufusi misses so many tackles. He shouldn't be out there
