Nice little attempted trip on Billy

design weapons, while civil engineers design targets.

This putrid. We deserve to lose by 20.

Interference in the ruck. That is only a rule in the second half, yeah? Must be...

Gobsmacked that the refs didn't believe the hit on Slater was a send off or sin bin offense. A clench fist, with it being late seems to me like it'd be a straightforward decision. Then again, the NRL refs are not known for intuitive rulings.

Worst refereeing display I've seen in a long time. Only thing worse was having to listen to Anasta in the commentary. They didn't show video of him but I'd swear he had greem pom poms waving round.

Hope Cam and Bill pull up OK.

So many crowd penalties and not sending Sia off was a joke. Gutless! refs!
With their season on the line they couldn't overcome an 8 point lead with a Smith, Slater-less Storm.
Hope these green grubs don't make the finals.
