Rightly or wrongly normally it’s the lower ranked teams or lower profile teams like your tigers or my knights who it’s easy to give the calls against.
But the cowboys have been a top 8 side for ages and had some horrific calls to knock them out of the finals 2 years in a row and always seem to cop it. Remember their 2? Point loss on the 7th tackle of a non 7 tackle set?
I remember those examples well and your right, its normally the lower ranked teams that mostly get the poor calls. It doesn't help when the NRL are seen to favour certain teams more than others,
example: "On Saturday the Roosters had a request to replace Crichton in their game day squad with Josh Curran granted by the NRL." via NRL.com.
Some clubs get treated better then others, why can't they use the reserves they had already listed on Tuesday, Knights, Tigers would have to.
