As bad as Cecchin was I appreciate him letting Chanel Harris-Tavita away with a strip whilst Fifita had a hand & both knees on the ground. Huge play in the context of the game
It was a perfect strip. The arm that Fifita was holding the ball in never touched the ground and the other 2 warriors had dropped off the tackle just before Chanel Harris-Tavita stripped it.

Thought when Evans (utter liability) was binned again 2nd half that we'd blown it but they showed great character to not only hold out but get in front.

Big 2 points and hopefully we go 3 from 3 next week to make the last few weeks exciting.

Chambers was a total p**** all game so glad we got one over on him.

Lots of press coming out about what Chambers actually said, without actually saying what was said.

Isaac luke deleted a tweet saying chamber's own team didn't approve.

Have to wonder what was said
I would like to know also based off how he reacted.
Have seen it claimed else where it was a ‘homophobic slur’ but havent seen it substantiated

There is an article on the Australian which quotes Cameron George saying ...

Although Chambers may have crossed a line but so did Evans, anybody who has played either code knows it generally the one who retaliates that cops it.

I have a real issue with Lodge's charge, using the word careless means that the contact was accidental but could have been avoided if care was taken. Then we have the Shark's players deliberately doing no arm tacklesm which are outlawed because of risk of injury.

So we have a player charged for accidental contact while other players intentionally break the tackle rules with no sanction, I would contest the charge on that alone and back it up with video evidence.

I agree it’s unfair, but an argument that “that guy did something worse and went unpunished “ is not going to get Lodge off, he’s going to have to prove what he did was not accidental.

Just another day in the life of a Warrior I guess

What's the email address. I'll oblige. I've only started following warriors closely the last few years but the officiating in nrl is embarrassingly bad, not just against the warriors.
I don't know if any one else has already answered your post J_P, but the NRL email address is Feedback@nrl.com.au
I have written a few times and some of the responses are:

The NRL is a business and as such it would be foolish of us to favour any teams over others. Our aim is to see the game grow and prosper and each of our 16 clubs play an important part in that plan.

Let me also assure you that I do not think there is a question of bias in any of this. We are entirely confident the overwhelming majority of our clubs, players and officials would never act to compromise the integrity of our sport.

There are always going to be subjective calls that are made in Rugby League but be assured referees make them on the basis of the facts as they see them not on the basis of who the team is. You are perfectly entitled to disagree with certain refereeing decisions but it is wrong to suggest that their decisions would be influenced by any consideration other than what they thought was the appropriate ruling at the time.

Please be assured that there is no bias against any teams. Our aim is to see the game grow and prosper and each of our 16 clubs play an important part in that plan.

I’d like to see the club defend all charges this week. The boys have been over there and sacrificed a lot this year (and last year), and it feels like there is good solidarity at the club.

We don’t have a lot to lose by contesting the charges (so long as it doesn’t affect 2022) and it would be a good gesture from the club that they have the players’ backs. Evans included.

And if Chambers crossed a line, I’d actually like this to come out publicly so he can be reprimanded. The guy is a pest

Your kidding yourself, it would make no difference whatsoever. You’d have more luck collectively smashing their Social media account than emailing that address.

Yeap got the e-mail address and went them an email. That response is about what i expected.
I don't know if it's bias or just incompetence which is just as bad.
The reason imo the bigger clubs always get the 50/50 calls go their way is the ref probably has a hard think before making game changing calls against them due to potential backlash.
