State of Origin Rep
So the only ones who think it should have been a try ( besides NSW team ) are the refs. No wonder confusion reigns in the bunker. They capitulated under pressure from coaches and the media re black and white rulings on obstructions with the block runners and now they are letting them think for themselves regarding other areas.Surprise surprise, Archer defended the Fifita try.
He said he did not influence the game.. Despite the fact that Jennings running for the ball attracted the attention of the defenders and forced one of them to try to block him.
Like some other things this year they have opened the door for that to be the norm after ruling black and white all last year and so far this year.
Didn't Qld have one taken off us in game 3 last year when Gillett was in front but miles away from the play. It was late in the game IIRC .
I can't find it but if anyone can be bothered it would be good to compare.
