    Wow. That was a QLD v NSW like ref performance.
    The refs gave every close call to the bronco's, and even a couple of clangers.

    The penalty try..... Ive never seen that awarded as a penalty try before, ever. Mental that they decide to pull it out now. What Hurrell did was not dangerous what so ever and the rule was brought in to stop slater from sliding in with his studs up or knees. These cases are not all identical, they need to be looked at on a case by case scenario and one like what happened last night should have been a fucking knock on against Kahu. The rule interpretation is a fucking joke.

    The Oats jump one, absolute shocker.
    The scrum feed change over, shocker.
    The forward pass, it travelled forward but certainly was not a forward pass - backwards out of the hands.
    The kick in the back... what the fuck? It was embarrassing that they didnt even mention it when the bunker was looking at the try. What a fucking disgrace
    As soon as Taylor went down the titans were no chance - then as soon as hayne dropped it they got ass fucked by the refs and the broncos ran over the top of them.
    Was one of the worst displays of reffing I have ever seen last night, just disgusting and if this is the standard of the reffing nowdays its a pretty sad thing and as a league fan its fucking hard to sit though.

    HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU GIVE A PENALTY TRY TO SOMEONE FOR HAVING THE BALL KICKED OUT OF HIS HANDS, THEN NOT PENALISE SOMEONE FOR KICKING A PERSON IN THE BACK?!?!?!

    I hate the video ref intervening.
    They need to either 1. Intervene all the time with incorrect calls or 2. Never intervene.
    I hate it.

    I hate situations where you can fucking see they have made the wrong call yet "its not a scrum" or whatever, and they cant change it. Either allow them to change them all or dont over turn anything.

    Get your anti Broncos glasses off Pieman. The Roberts and Oates decisions were terrible, but the rest were spot on. The penalty try would only have been controversial had they not awarded it.

    If it wasn't the Broncos, when Pearson dropped the ball off the first bomb many would be saying that Hoffman pushed him without going for the ball. No mention of that.

    Hmmm nah. Technically the penalty try was the correct call. We can debate it all day long but the simple fact is you cannot kick out like Hurrell did.

    IMO Roberts one was a kick no doubt. He'll probably escape a charge though on the basis of insufficient force, or that it was not clear whether he was trying to get his leg around to play the ball or some other crap like that. If Kicking grade 1 attracted 75 points in sure that he'd have been charged, but since it's 200 points I'm sure the MRC will take the soft option.

    i felt for the titans because everything did seem to go against them from like the 5th minute onwards, most of them weren't shockers (2-3 were terrible ) but all the 50/50's defs went the broncs way. the penalty try was 100% correct but even that would certainly be hard to swallow if happened to my team.

    but even if all the calls evened out, i'm convinced broncs still win


    do roberts(kick) and parker (headbutt) have anything to worry about ?


    both were clearly intentional moments of stupidity but i don't think either had that much force. guys seems to throw elbows around when guys are in the ruck and never get charged, i don't think what roberts did was any worse then that, so no charge for mine (but 100% should have been penalized)

    i'd probably say the same about parker but given he has reached paul gallen heights of hypocrisy in terms of dirty play, i'm on the ban coza bandwagon all the way

    Parker has nothing to worry about. That happens 2-3 scrums a game. Roberts might be nervous. In their favour i6 days ago the MRC said Ennis wasn't charged due to insufficient force. Robert's had less force than that.

    Josh Reynolds got off for a deliberate trip therefore Roberts shouldnt have anything to worry about. Ive kicked my little toe harder then that.

    Reynolds didn't get off though, he got charged and pleaded guilty, just didn't accrue enough points to miss any matches. Big difference.

    So the same should happen with Roberts. Definitely doesnt deserve to miss any matches where as Reynolds definitely did as he had tripped on several previous occasions.

    Yep, and there lies the problem, they have the ability to shape the definitions.  It needs to be 100% objective-you can't kick another player, simple.  Sure there may be some borderline cases, but if everyone who kicked another player copped the minimum 2 weeks, then it would stop (not that it happens that much).  Same with tripping, holy fucking shit, what the fuck, I am more angry than I should be right now but angry because they are making the game an embarrassment.  A trip is a trip is a trip.  How is that hard?

    I mean how the fuck do they NOT continue to rule on blokes stepping over the line on forced drop outs?  That is black and fucking white.  3 years ago they cracked down on it and now it has slipped.  Why has it slipped?  It's not exactly a blight on the game, but it's a simple rule that if policed consistently would not be happening.  As a ref it can't be hard to rule on it, there is no subjectivity with that rule so why the fuck do they not rule on it every single fucking time?

    Same with walking off the mark, playing the ball square, offside at the kick off-there was one pulled up last weekend and the winger had barely stepped over the line before it was kicked-yes he was offside fractionally but why that one player in that one game?  Fuck me!  Rule on the them all and it will fucking stop.

    And agree with the pie eating Peopleschamp, use the technology for everything or nothing.  I don't care if it slows the game down if it means they are getting 99% of the decisions right.  The game has definitely sped up over the last few decades so going backwards a bit for the sake of getting a fair and just result is a decent pay off in my mind.

    But that's the fault in the grading points. You can't say Roberts deserves a charge but 200 points for kicking is too much so we'll charge him with something else instead like striking, which Only has 125 points. Agree tripping should be more.

    This is another example where shine would probably be the fairest penalty.

    I'd rather be punched then kicked. It was blatant, deliberate and intended to hurt, needs to be a minimum of 3 weeks

    My problem with the penalty try was ever week you see players try use their legs to stop tries and never once have we seen a penalty try.

    The refs were ridiculous and knew they stuffed up a few times so brushed the captains away rudely and with no respect. I felt bad for Friend a few times
