General NRL 2021 Round 9 - General Discussion


A question about the bunker and checking tries. Say the Titans score and the ref awards the try. The bunker then confirms that the try should have been awarded by checking to make sure there’s no reason it shouldn’t be awarded

The question I’ve got is what if the ref doesn‘t award a try and sends it upstairs for the bunker to check for a knock on in the lead up. Does the bunker check everything such as offside, obstruction and the put down or are they only allowed to check what the ref has told them too? So, say the ball was put down properly or a player put their foot into touch, the bunker can’t disallow the try?
The bunker has carte blanche to check whatever they please.
