Milk Truck making the delivery I see, Storm have gotten away with so much crap tonight but typical they get that timely b/s penalty to help them along.

Just saw the hit on Morgan. I thought it was a shoulder charge , late and high.
Brandy Alexander, " when you watch it at normal speed It could have been late but if it was it was marginal".
FFS if you can't be close to impartial just **** off to 9 with Goose.

Meh this has been a bludger of a game considering the two teams playing...
I understand where you're coming from. The Roosters felt the absence of Warea-Hargreaves, Keary and Friend last night and the game didn't quite make it out of third gear. It didn't flow all that well either with Melbourne penalising themselves out of the first half while the Roosters couldn't complete a set in the second.

I still thought both teams were extremely well drilled in defence and showed why they're on top of the ladder. It was a game on first view that was defined by the near misses moreso than the tries that were actually scored. For example, that cover tackle by Munster on Tedesco was excellent. Not only did he get him, but he hit him with enough force to slow the play the ball down and give his men just enough time to recover. Most teams would have conceded the try in that instance.

Similar story with that Papenhuyzen break later on in the game. First off, the effort from Papenhuyzen to break into the clear was great, but the support from Addo-Carr and then the cover from the Roosters was so impressive.

It's just a shame that we'll have to wait until September to see something like that again.

Don't be so hasty Pete. You might see Milf break into the clear from FB and offload to the big motoring Oatesy tonight.

Hang on a second. Slater's tackle on Feki wasn't a shoulder charge but the hit on Morgan from Sims was?

How?

And Brandy is right. Play the tackle in normal speed, it's not late. This crackdown is getting ridiculous.

They've changed the interpretation, so they can't use Slater as a precedent.

In fact, the precedent wasn't even set by Slater. It was set much earlier by Ryan James when he got off for a similar tackle against the Cowboys in 2017, right after the NRL had changed the interpretation following the Ennis/Wighton fiasco.
