  • The Offside Rule

    So what is the offside ruling from a kick chase ?

    Joey Manu's try was disallowed from Bunker because "he had one leg in front of the kicker".
    Now when Billy Slater scored 'that try' in Origin, he was considered on side because at the time in discussion they said "he had one foot behind the kicker". I know thats like nearly 20 years ago now, but did the offside interpretation change at some point ? There was no outrage or questioning of the decision last night, or was Billy granted an exception all those years ago ?

    Also what's with Cameron Munster's aggro toward Manu, he was really into him a few times last night especially just after the disallowed try. I guess he's never forgiven Joey for attacking his foot with the back of his head in the 2018 GF !

    I thought he was onside! Didn’t have the volume up so couldn’t get clarification. I thought it might have been Teddy who was deemed offside, as he got close to Munster? Dunno

      Im sure I heard the bunker say Manu had one foot in front of the kicker which constitutes offside. Since the Slater try in origin all those years ago, Ive always been of the belief that so long as you had at least one foot behind you were ok.
      Had no effect on game result we were done by that stage, but just left scratching my head over the bunker ruling.

      And while scratching my head ... when Josh Morris had the try disallowed for knock on into opponent ...didnt he lose the ball backward into the Storm players back ..he was in the air leaping over the Storm player, and he was on the way down to the ground and he was effectively past the storm player, he could only have lost the ball backwards into the defenders back ! ....maybe it was my RWB eyes, but it just seems these days if you lose the ball its always a knock on. Knock backwards are going the way of the scrum. Vlandys wants NRL touch football, he may as well just bring in the drop ball rule and forget about knock ons !

        I thought both Morris and Manu scored. I thought Morris never lost control of the ball and I thought Joey should have been given the benefit of the doubt cause it was so close. His foot was in the air. Maybe it’s my RWB eyes but we just didn’t seem to catch a break. Every 50-50 went against us. Also Rads 10 in the bin? All these things could have had a huge impact on the game if we got the rub of the green at the time.

          Agree. It seemed like the bunker were 'in it' along with the ref and touchies last night.

          And you are right in what you heard Hawkeye.

          So strange they only showed it once only as well.

            Yes it does seem everything is a knock on these days. Except if you are Asofa-Solomona fumbling a loose ball on the ground. That was diabolical!

              And how quickly did they make the call on this offside ruling? If it was any other side they would have dissected it for five minutes.

                  Yes very strange the bunker can't rule on forward passes but can on whether chasers are on side or not from kicks - what camera angles do they have and do they have lines across the field like in football to rule on this - the very brief glimpse they showed gave viewers no idea of how they came to that decision.

                  mmm his foot was in front did they have a close up of his foot as it may have been off the ground.

                      Yes that wasn’t the only incident. As others have said I didn’t think Morris lost control on the opening try and I love how the commentators just ignore the errors or poor calls and move on so quickly. until
                      its us then it’s laboured for minutes. Adam Gee is a fool.

                        They reckon the strom are a remarkable side. Couldn't score a legitmate point against an injury riddled side down in melbourne in 40 mins against 12 men at one stage. Them potentially losing last night i heard could have had them drop out of the 8?

                        And while i like the look of Harry Grant, he aint no smith and the aura that he's taken with him in retiring.

                        How good are they really? Stop exploiting the rules and we might find out. I actually think they'd still go alright, so why the ref love?

                          I saw Joey give it to him a couple of times. If only he could have put one on this chin

                            Jerome Hughes strip on Rads. Hughes propelled the ball forward and it bounced before he regathered. That is a knock-on.

                              In truth, if Annesley were to admit all of the dud calls in that game that went against us, in his weekly press conference, it would not only take forever but would be just too embarrassing for the NRL. So I expect him to pretend Gee and the bunker had a great game.
