    I know the rule. The fact is he did actually drop it, which is why they looked a million times to try and prove it. One of the angles showed separation for mine, but the bunker obviously didn't think so.

  2. No, I don't.

    No separation, hand still on the ball when it touched the ground. There isn't a rule that can deny that try.

    That's been a try for a long time.

    Making the Grand Final last year was a mistake.

    I thought the rule for the last few years has been that you need control of the ball, unless of course it is in nobody's possession and on the ground.

    Hardly fault of Feldt. Hoffman had a great swipe at his arm to dislodge. That will be he only time in history that I ever complement Hoffman.

    Agree to disagree then. Seems I’m not the only one.

    Just saw the score online.

    What on earth is doing with the Cowboys?
     
  10. They looked at it a million times to see why the ball came out the way it did, but every replay showed his hand on the ball the entire time.

    Even if it squirts out the way it did, it doesn't matter. It can't be a knock on if his hand never leaves the ball.

    There have been a lot of tries like that over the years.

    Gasnier nibbles Haynes **** for fun and even he changed his opinion through the camera angles. I’m starting to wonder if ego over-rules logic.

    Norman on Hayne: "It's good that he had a crack tonight."

    You could almost drown in the irony.

    I'm not arguing the rule. You were asking why they looked so many times. He quite clearly had zero control over the ball, which is why the bunker looked so many times to try to find any separation.

    Post-game commentary now all agreeing that it was a no try. Time for spec-savers, SF :p.
     
  16. I'm not the one that needs specsavers.

    No separation = no knock on. It doesn't matter if the ball bounces. As Warren Smith said for the Feldt try, the ball never leaves the hands or fingers which is clear in every replay. What happens after is irrelevant.

    Agree on the Feldt try, disagree (like everyone else) on the Hayne try.

    The “control” rule is only if the ball leaves the hand. If there is separation, they need to regain control for it to be a try. No separation means no need for there to be control. He can follow the ball to the ground with the tip of his finger, if it never breaks contact, the moment it touches the grass it’s a try, regardless of how it spews out afterwards.

    Feldt’s try was the same. Had lost “control” but there was never separation. It was even called a “no try” on-field but video ref overturned it because of the rules above.

    No try imo. You need control.
    Also Thurston does a plain as day shoulder charge on the Jennings try at about 2:11. Let's see if the MRC have anything to say....doubt it.

    The difference is, Feldt had his hand on top of the ball ( or fingers at least), while Hayne had his hand beside the ball. The distortion (compression of space) of the camera lense made it look closer than it was. It was plain as day to everyone, bar the video ref, that he knocked it on.
