In any other situation they probably wouldn't have had a video ref deciding it to apply the correct ruling? Hurrrrrr.

Look I think you're being a bit harsh on the video ref, it's hard to do his job with 45 dicks in his mouth.

I know its been discussed but not really explained? when did you go for them? like were you brought up with family members who went for them? that would explain it and kinda be ok, or did you just decided somewhere along the line, hey this team is winning I am going to go for them?

or is the it the colour?

you know what the definition of Origin means right?

Spoiler:
you know I am only kidding around, but kinda curious

I can honestly say, hand on my heart, that I'd be saying it wasn't a try if it was the other way around.

I'm very surprised at people defending it TBH. Although presumably most of those people are using braille keyboards.

The main problem I see here is people don't know the rules of the game, both commentators and supporters.

Stuart said it was a try, Meninga said it was a try, the Ref's said it was a try, Qld thinks it's a try, NSW players on the field closeby thought it was a try (watch the video) - the only one who thinks they're hard done by are NSW supporters and the Telegraph.

Inglis lost control because Farah tried to stop the grounding of the ball with his foot, simple as that.
Again, watch the footage, he adjusts where he is running to do this.
It's effectively the same rules as a strip, Inglis then regathers/scores.

I'm not going to weigh into this too much, but I agree with whitey. If you cannot see that he threw his leg out (and forget all the stepping argument, his right foot is clearly thrown out towards inglis and the ball) you have to be blind. he played at the ball, which made the ball live, he grounded it. try. sets ups a pretty epic next game!

Man... it's been a while since I've felt that gutted after a loss

But I'm happy that Farah finally got his chance to show just how retarded the NSW selectors have been the last few years.
Crazy to think that if it weren't for injuries he'd still be 3rd behind Bedsy and Ennis.

Once again Hayne was one of best; like he has been the last few years.
He should be at fullback, imo.

I thought Tamou was great too.

I was surprised at how much the occasion got to Carney but you'd hope he'll be better for their experience.

All we need are a couple changes (bring in Choc and another prop on the bench), for Carney to fire and we've got the team to win it.

And if it wasn't for the Jennings brain snap I think they would've won.

Can't wait for the Sydney game.

I've already stated that it's people who think Farah played at it that are blind so I'm afraid you can't say it too.

Dude, you know that throwing your legs out is basically running right? Ofcourse his legs are going towards Inglis and the ball as that's who had the fricking ball.

Video refs should only get a limited amount of views at the reply IMO. If you slow the footage down enough and use multiple angles you could interpret anything in any way. In real time/real life things don't have to be so complicated.

Worst origin call in history IMO.

The video from behind clearly shows Farah putting his foot out, it's the reason he fell over afterwards.
Watch the video, it happens at 0.51.

Also... been looking for this.

NRL Rule #103
If the defending player was deemed to have practiced intent of dislodging the ball in the attacking in goal then the attacking team may continue play. However if the ball is deemed dead the defending team must proceed to a goal line drop-out.
Also if you prevent a player from scoring by causing a penalty instead, that constitutes a penalty try. and leading with the foot is against the rules.

I can highlight it for NSW fans if they like?

But that's the irrelevant part. The video Ref should have ruled it as a penalty according to the Slater rule, but obviously it was deemed ok because it is ruled on their interpretation.

So the next thing to rule on is whether Inglis knocked on.

Which the above footage CLEARY proves.

= NO TRY.

Harrigan:

What did you think about the decision to award Greg Inglis a try in the 72nd minute?
“Greg Ingis had possession of the ball and was trying to ground the ball. Robbie Farah, in desperation to prevent the try, changed his running gait and threw his leg out. In doing so, he dislodged the ball, so therefore it is deemed that he played at the ball. The ball is still live.
It does rebound off Greg Inglis’s forearm after it was dislodged, but he did not play at it, it was a rebound and then he grounded the ball.”

How is it that Inglis isn't playing at a ball he was attempting to ground for a try? Amazing statement.

Official View: Inglis try was fair, says Harrigan

Referees co-coach Bill Harrigan answers your most frequently asked questions from State of Origin Game One.

What did you think about the decision to sin-bin NSW centre Michael Jennings?

I fully support this decision. Michael Jennings ran from a distance and threw a punch that connected and was rightly sin-binned. Matt Scott was cautioned by the referee and was told that he was lucky to stay on the field after throwing the ball at Greg Bird and starting the melee. Had he been sin-binned, I would have been happy with that decision as well.

Could Cameron Smith have been penalised for collecting Akuila Uate high in a tackle?

This was purely accidental, Uate fell into Cameron Smith and in the game of rugby league there is always accidental contact.

What are your thoughts on the lifting tackle by NSW forward Greg Bird, should it have earned a penalty?

No, it should have been play on. It was a good, hard tackle.

Could Jarryd Hayne have been penalised for striking Johnathan Thurston while in possession of the ball?

Yes, he could have been.

What did you think about the decision to award Greg Inglis a try in the 72nd minute?

Greg Ingis had possession of the ball and was trying to ground the ball. Robbie Farah, in desperation to prevent the try, changed his running gait and threw his leg out. In doing so, he dislodged the ball, so therefore it is deemed that he played at the ball. The ball is still live.

It does rebound off Greg Inglis’s forearm after it was dislodged, but he did not play at it, it was a rebound and then he grounded the ball.

For these reasons, I agree with the decision to award a try.

I am surprised that nobody has mentioned Hayne's sneaky little jab on Thurston right near the start of the match, after a tackle.

Also wtf is with league players last night having a sook after a big tackle, rolling around for 10-30 seconds and then jumping up and playing on as if nothing happened. They're meant to be hard ****s.

Oh and NSW definitely should have won that being the better team on the day. The second match will be a no contest if Slater, Smith and Cronk actually decide to bring their a games, although Smith was still pretty good last night.

ok, I question at what point does it become a knock on as opposed to a rebound. Seems like it is a matter of interpretation.

If Inglis was looking at the football as it hit his forearm, would that be considered a rebound as well? Because in sport, where your eyes go is generally where the intention is.

I will concede if that's what the rule book states.

But your argument was about Farah's intention, which was not the issue here.

Now let's talk about the real controversy here, about how QLDs dominance would have been only 3 years if Farah was kept in the blues side since 09

Farrah didn't play at the ball, he stepped down. Inglis lost it due to the incidental contact and it hit the ground before it bounced up and then he grounded it on the second bounce. That's not a try, it's a knock on.

While NSW wasn't guaranteed a win, we had the momentum and being behind 2 points is completely different to 8.
It's as clear as fucking daylight.

In 2010 the Roosters beat a banged up Penrith side and were very lucky to be playing a finals game against a team that in all honesty ran out of players. This was something I openly admitted. We were lucky.

In the following game against the Tigers the Roosters fought back brilliantly, but ran out of time and were behind on the scoreboard when the referee made an almighty fucking bollocks. A ball was fed into a scrum and the Roosters pushed and dived on the ball against the feed. During every other game in the season if a team pushed the scrum was re-fed and the pushing team were told to behave. Had that occurred the Tigers would have and should have won. They were robbed of a deserved victory by an error in judgement by the referee.

Now I'm a Roosters fan and as much as enjoyed watching each win I am man enough to admit that we were extremely unlucky and in the Tigers case there was a massive injustice which robbed them of a chance of playing in a Grand Final and having a crack at the Grand prize. I felt for them and had I been on the other side I would have felt hard done by. I know I felt rather embarrassed that our wonderful fightback was coloured by an error in judgement by the officials.


Fast forward to 2012 and we witnessed an absolute fucking debacle yesterday in State of Origin. Queensland won off the back of some serious errors in judgement of the officials and what have we heard from Queenslanders today? What have the supporters of the Maroons been saying to us? I'm sorry - that was a bit poor? I feel for you guys because I'd hate to lose that way? The standard of the refereeing is below par? No, what we've heard is "moar butthurt you fucking losers" - "suck shit you arsewipes" - or even more laughably "the decisions were correct" or "you Blues can't think for yourselves and only parrot what Phil Gould says"

I'm sorry, but FUCK YOU QUEEENSLAND - your behaviour in what was an absolutely embarrassing victory insults the great game of Rugby League and competitive sport in general but worse than that, you insult yourselves and you can't even see it. Are you really as low as that?

I wouldn't mind losing if we were beaten by brilliance, I wouldn't mind losing if we were beaten by the better team, I wouldn't mind losing if you were ashamed of the fact that you'd been gifted victory by utterly rubbish decision making.

State of Origin deserves better than this - Rugby League deserves better than this. This game is the pinnacle of our sport and it seems that winning at all costs is far more important than winning through endeavour, effort, toughness and skill.

I'm ashamed today. I'm ashamed of the self interest of people who aren't big enough to stand up and admit when something has gone horribly wrong. I'm ashamed that people are more interested in calling others names than demanding that something be done to fix something that is quite obviously broken.

People make errors but real men admit to their mistakes and work to eradicate them.

While NSW wasn't guaranteed a win, we had the momentum and being behind 2 points is completely different to 8.
It's as clear as fucking daylight.

I'm gonna side with Harrigan as to if it's a try or not, that bloke has more clout in terms of opinion than anyone in the QLD camp, NSW camp, footy reporters or /randoms posting on a dance music forum.

You can hardly argue momentum for NSW when they spent so much time down the QLD end without breaking them enough to get points on the board, lets also not forget the great usage of momentum when they went for that field goal.
Crazy people are ace doorslammers.

If you are talking about "Greg Inglis" when the players line up at the beginning and announce their JUNIOR club - Greg Inglis's comes up as BOWRAVILLE TIGERS. A team based SOUTH of Coffs Harbour.

Greg Inglis originally played SENIOR football in the Newcastle comp. Newcastle is further south than Coffs Harbour. Both places are in New South Wales. Greg only played in Brisbane when he was placed there by the Melbourne Storm as a junior player with their feeder club which was Brisbane Norths.

Greg Inglis has no connection with Queensland other than the fact that they tried to pick an ineligible player and he agreed as he didn't want to wait for Mark Gasnier and Jamie Lyon to retire from NSW before playing rep football. Nothing more.

That was stirring stuff Lamb - are you Craig Thomson's speech writer?

For what it's worth, I posted that Qld were lucky several pages of butthurt ago, and it's a real fucking shame that one of the few Origins in recent years that has had me edge of my seat for most of the game has been almost forgotten amidst the Inglis try angst.

Game 2 is going to fucking rock. Gotta see what the Raiders turn in against the Rabbits tomorrow night though, which could get real ugly real fast.

People coming into the thread thinking they know shit calling it rugby or a penalty goal a field goal. Lol. Fuck off back to your rugby thread or afl thread where you belong and leave us new south Welshman to be butthurt in our league thread. Kthnx.

Edit: lamb, it's all good. Inglis is a **** so he fits right in up north with the rest of them. This debacle just gives NSW more incentive next time around. I hope there is a good and proper biff. Would live to see Pearce take on Thaiday again.

I was sad to hear Billy defending the decision by Hampstead today and I get the feeling that he is covering his arse and trying to deflect criticism.

There has been so much criticism of the referees this season and it was such a bad decision that he must be under an enormous amount of pressure to try and make it seem better than it actually is.

The Brisbane newspaper actually came out and said it shouldn't have been awarded - I just wish that the referees and supporters of Queensland were men enough to admit that something other than "Queensland spirit" won them the game. But they're so entrenched in the myth of this lie that they can't bring themselves to admit they might actually have had an unfair advantage granted to them.

I'm not Craig Thompson's speech writer, but I'm happy to use his credit card on whores if he wants me to.

Thanks for admitting you were lucky. Now say after me "I'm sorry NSW, that win was embarrassing"

The best teams always get the rub of the green, it's to be expected. It's just a real shame that it was so blatant last night.
