PLEASE HELP: Do I need an eye test? Am I the only person on this planet that saw Tom Burgess lunge forward like happens in 99% of tackles and then Daniel Saifiti throws a heatbutt and a right hand and then it's on.
Have no problem with the other two being binned for the aftermath but I had red card for Saifiti, bin for Tom Burgess for retaliation and like I said the other two getting binned.
Was shocked to hear the halftime crew disagree completely but then again Michael Ennis doesn't often talk sense

Knights have been good but not amazing. Souths have nothing without their halves. Can see them picking up a number of losses if they keep playing like they have for the last two weeks.

None of the halftime crew saw it as you did, Penpal. Everyone else saw a Burgess head butting first, triggering the whole episode.

I reckon the Knights are playing pretty damned good. Saffs are hopeless, spilling the pill everywhere, a great tackle by Jesse Ramien shoved a certain Saffs try-scorer over the sideline.

Sam Burgess, Thomas Burgess sin-binned earlier, now George Burgess off for an HIA. Saifiti is king! 10 minutes left and no way will Saffs pull back from 6-20 down, the way they’re playing. Ponga is being rested but Knights are on! Mason Lino is playing great, too.

@ Uk Warriors fan if you're meaning me I've watched it several times. Why do people get excited about something like a player lunging forward after something blows up? TV watches that don't go to games maybe? Guys that have never played the game? It seriously happens every single tackle! Things like that need to be kept in context. I just don't understand it. I saw what I saw, doesn't make me right but I can't work out how I'm supposedly the only one. Just as well it was the Rabbits and not the Warriors as my tv would be out the window if that was the case!!

Souths were awful. The halves weren't dropping the ball granted but tonight shows what Reynolds brings to that team

Just have to say.

I am wrapped to see Mason Lino getting some decent game time with a good side. Good on the kid. It just shows how lucky us Warriors fans are that we have so much depth in the halves we can let a player like Lino go to a bunch of losers like the Knights. :rolleyes: :(

Same here, that is Pearce was telling the ref as well. He has to be stood down next week after that, and then there was the leg trip later in the game.

I couldn't believe the crap Pearce was talking when Safiti was the one who instigated the headbutt and then threw the first punch... when the charge sheets come out I'm either going to be gloating uncontrollably or probably deleting my account from this forum in shame haha I think Safiti will be in trouble but I promise to say nothing else on the subject tonight... unless I'm baited of course haha

How do you instigate a headbutt??
