Not a bad opposed session

Not a great deal to say except we should of taken Api off sooner. There was no point him risking injury when the game result meant nothing.

Spencer seemed to pick up an injury as well.

Thought we got robbed on that 2nd last try but was at the ground and couldn’t see the replay well.

Thought that last goal kick should of been handed to Yeo - he deserved it!

Great to see the old boys go round. Pitty it’s getting harder and harder to recognize them as time marches on. The crowd did erupt though when we worked out we had Wesser, Pulatua and fats walking in front of us.

:mega: Panther Pride Man of the Match voting is now open here.

Was that the one ruled knock on by Kiks?

Bunker ruled kiks didn’t pass, but rather tapped it on. Because of that distinction, the bunker can rule on it (as opposed to fwd passes where they can’t) and the ball must go backwards, regardless of momentum.

I thought that was an interesting call. I’m sure they haven’t ruled that way previously. Memory might be a bit sketchy, but wouldn’t that catch out Moylan?

Like the obstruction call a game or two ago, the change is the right call, but I’m not sure I agree with the interpretation change in the latter rounds of the season.


Example of refs making up rules on the run. A tap on is a pass.
I may be wrong, but I don’t believe there is a specific rule for tap ons.
