Ive already called the nits for spoon again, just to keep things consistent. but definitely pearce and co have made a difference, but they were at one stage 5th with -60.On points differential the Knights should be at the bottom of the table, and I suspect that is where they might end up yet they sit 10th.
Just saying like.
i know a lot of knights people and love going to the club to watch games or drink etc, they were all expecting a bit more improvement than has occured. yet Andrew Johns laughed at billy slater on TV when he said the warriors would be the most improved club, yet old Cokey AJ said prior to slaters turn it would be his club the knights. i wish i had saved that clip.
I think the bunker was telling the ref that the Manly play needed to be sent off for his punch too. But the ref misinterpretted it as sin bin only.Im looking at these games and thinking the sin binning is out of control. yes I think it should be used. but not to the extent it is. its not changing anything except ruining the flow of games. ok you could say a team deserves something for 4 penalties in a row. i agree. i think though thats what a penalty is and its up to the team whether they shoot for goal or not. 12 men down is much more than a try in many circumstances. but, there isnt an in between, thats the problem. both are extremes, not sin binning is too light and sin binning so much is too much.
it was a year a go when a player could be tackled with no one in front of him and they would only get a penalty, now its either a send off, sin bin plus penalty try.
last night the melb player struck out (the guy knows how to throw straights as that eye swelled up immediately), and fairly got sent off. yet the manly player got coming in with a blind side and got a sin bin. how the .... is that fair?
im all for sin bins and such, but it just feels like the refs are poking their tongues out at coaches and clubs for complaining about slow play the balls. yet before they werent even penalising, now its straight to handing out soft penalties and 4 in a row your off. Not an easy job but I sense its more an over reaction to complaints on their reffing.
Yep thats what I heard, how the flap did the ref not hear it... I guess he had a lot going on. You cant blame Melb for being a little dirty, yes they instigated a fight, but Manly should have been down to 12 for most of the match as well and they had SOOO many calls go their way.I think the bunker was telling the ref that the Manly play needed to be sent off for his punch too. But the ref misinterpretted it as sin bin only.
Interesting to see how Melbourne function without Cameron Smith reffing the game for them.
The words that made Melbourne Storm's Curtis Scott go off on Dylan Walker
Melbourne star Curtis Scott was sent off for a brutal punch on Manly's Dylan Walker, but it has been revealed the reason for Scott's ire following the game.
The Storm youngster became the first player sent off since 2015 after unleashing a flurry of punches that left Walker with a suspected cheekbone fracture.
Scott was sent off, while Walker and Manly’s Api Koroisau were both sin binned for their parts in the wild brawl that ensued.
“He (Walker) was at Scott all game, telling him ‘You’ll never be anything, you’re a nothing’,” a source at the match told WWOS.
“He could see it got under Scott’s skin. Then he kept saying ‘Hit me, hit me’… so Scott did.”
Scott faces a two to three week ban for the brain snap, and Koroisau is also likely to be charged for punching.
Storm coach Craig Bellamy was philosophical about the incident.
“Curtis needs to learn from it,” the veteran coach said.
