    This is such a test for the HIA protocols.

    Nathan Clearly cleary knocked out, 12 minutes to go, prelim final up by 4pts. What do you do?
  2. Magic AJ Parker

    Hold your neck get a penalty, 76 minutes thought we were going to go without one.
  3. AVA T Delonge

    Gus is off his head calling this a great game.
  4. Magic AJ Parker

    What a game!

    Panthers made the Melbourne attack that looked so good all year look like absolute shit.

    Back to Back just ain't an easy thing to do.
  5. AVA T Delonge

    Magic disagrees.

    It was entertaining for sure, I just felt it was a lying in the ruck simulator which led to forced passes and errors.

    Losing Smith and Welch so early was huge.
  7. Magic AJ Parker

    Mate it was sloppy as fuck, skill level was pretty low with plenty of errors and missed tackles but made for a tight contest all based on scramble defence and moments we don't get enough of it in the current state of the game.

    The two worst teams in the comp for lying in the ruck so they cancelled each other out.

    For sure, especially when they carry a dummy half and a utility back on the bench.

    Really not a fan of Melbourne losing both and then Penrith not pulling Cleary off for a HIA with 12 minutes to go when it was clear he was staggering and on the ropes. Shoots to bits the Penrith medical staffs claims of "player welfare" from the week before.

    Just proves the decisions to take someone off for HIA assessments need to be left to an independent doctor and taken out of the hands of the club.

    The knock on from Burton in-goal and the 'successful challenge' from Penrith are two of the worst rulings ive seen this year.

    AVA likes this.

    Souths are overs at 2.40.
  12. AVA T Delonge

    Yeah 100% can agree with that. I thought the first half was thrilling for those reasons in particular. I guess fatigue + holding on for dear life just make the 2nd half a bit more lame.
  13. Magic AJ Parker

    Fucking broken clocks aye, about time. Hope you had some money on it.
  14. Magic AJ Parker

    Yep I like the captains challenge but needs some refining.

    That wasn't a successful challenge and I'm not even a fan of them looking at everything in the play, should just be looking at just what the captain is challenging.
  15. Magic AJ Parker

    Just me or has Papenhuyzen looked timid since returning from his long lay off due to concussion. Understandably so but I always thought it was a massive call to bring him in for Nico Hynes who was firing at the time.
  16. Magic AJ Parker

    Love the fact the first 20/40 in the history of the game wasn't even intended and no one knew it was even on until the refs called it.
  17. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    HIA was made to be a joke here. Is it the Penrith doctor that is required to call for Cleary to come off? He was pretty clearly knocked out and wobbling on his feet. And I have no idea how Luai passed his, he looked cooked, and even admitted to not remembering a chunk of the game.
  18. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Not much. Had a lot more on Manly making the 8.
  19. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    I like Hughes but fuck he was woeful. Every shift right in that second half was munted.
  20. Magic AJ Parker

    PVL with the pig Latin at the Dally M’s :lol: what a adlay!
