Ponga take's Morgan's utility bench spot hopefully. If Slater goes down, Ponga is the same sort of fullback.
It was a bad call, but other sides have had similar or worse. There are no easy games in the NRL and the Cowboys were fighting for their season. I did wonder about the Cowboys line speed in the second half but the defensive effort was superb, it reminded me of the Saint George game. If anybody had been offered this position at the start of the season they would have taken it with open arms. This is a different team to last year and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is a true skipper.
It was the assistant ref that was coming up with the rubbish calls especially the Beale and Green phantom knock ons. I could hear his fucken weasel voice making the calls to Perenara on the tv. Perenara helped us a couple times with the penalty against Feldt and a couple of no try referrals.So -
The Warriors ran rampant in the first half. We had all the momentum.
Try assist to Peranara which leads to Cowgirls getting on the score board. Momentum shift. Cowboys start to win the arm wrestle.
Second half. Cowboy's pick up where they left off. A good majority of the 50/50's went the their way in the second half also. Warriors hanging by a thread, but did enough to hold on.
Conclusion - while the Warriors were by no means perfect, my view is that the referee's played an active part in the momentum swing. Some of those calls were really, really bad. The sad thing is that we are seeing more and more "bad calls." The standard of refereeing is atrocious, and the NRL, rather than burying their heads in the sand, need to do something about it.
I've said my part about Perenara in the other thread.
Given the circumstances, the boys played well and held tough to get the win.
Parker is a one eyed, entitled cliche vending machine.It was the assistant ref that was coming up with the rubbish calls especially the Beale and Green phantom knock ons. I could hear his fucken weasel voice making the calls to Perenara on the tv. Perenara helped us a couple times with the penalty against Feldt and a couple of no try referrals.
I thought Corey Parker should've had a NQ cheer leaders skirt on with all the pro NQ comments and whinging how the warriors were getting the 50/50 calls lol
