wtf. Aloiai charged for a beautiful hit on Cronk. This not allowed to tackle the superstars bullshit is well beyond a joke now.
I've been saying it for months now, but this crackdown is getting fucking ridiculous. It's getting to a point where you won't be able to tackle a half that takes the ball to the line at all.

There was absolutely nothing fucking wrong with that tackle. Nothing wrong at all. It was a good solid tackle, it wasn't late, but because Cronk stayed down like a little bitch, it gets made to look worse than what it actually was.

I hope Aloiai challenges it.

The fucked thing is he won't miss a game if he takes the early guilty plea. I also hope he challenges it, it will be a disgrace if he loses.

It's already at that point, obviously.

Oh look divey McCronk getting people charged for what was a completely legal hit! **** I hate the spineless people who run this sport. Fucking charge Cronk for being a diving bitch.

Young halfback Phoenix Crossland on debut off the bench for the knights, if he gets a decent chance it would be good to see how he goes.

I can't believe it took so long to come to that decision.

It was clear on the second replay there was no knock on and it was not grounded prior to Fitzgibbon grounding it.

Its amazing how the luck just goes with some teams.

If that was us at the moment we would have found someway to get a hand on that to knock it on.

I don't get the fuss about not stopping the game there. Hiku didn't look too bad tbh.

As for the drop ball no-try, that was a howler

Bit of justice there for the Warriors. Dead-set robbed for Maumalo's (would-be) 3rd try, and the refs no stopping play for a concussed Hiku is bullshit.

Edit: On that, how is the trainer supposed to notify the refs that there is a player down if they're not even on the field? I though they could only be on the field for an attacking set, not a defensive one?

Not sure why Lino wouldn't pass it to Ramien a bit earlier.

Giving him the ball with room to move, might have created something.

I don't mind if they play on in that situation. Teams tend to manipulate these things sometimes. He wasn't in the road so I think the refs did the right thing. Too often there are stoppages disadvantaging the attacking side over basically nothing.

I didn't have much issue with the refs playing on.

So many players fake injury in those situations. I have no doubt it's a tactic that's taught to players.
