    How Soliola wasn't sent off just then is beyond me, If that's not a send off I'd hate to say what is

    Regardless whether Slater was falling or not the contact was high and it was a sickening impact

    Gutless from the refs, Guess you have to kill someone to be sent these days

    Not 100% sure it was a send off for the offence alone. But the fact that the Storm lose their fullback for the rest of the game and Soliola gets to continue playing is a joke.

    What's a joke is the NRL officials

    They are incompetent, inconsistent and absolutely gutless

    But don't worry, Mr. Archer will tell everyone how great they are on Monday as usual

    It was a direct send off mozza but Cecchin takes the weak way out in front of the home crowd.

    It was a disgraceful decision. Like you said Rhugh, what the hell is a send off offence these days? The NRL has become a laughing stock to me.

    Nah he fell into it. It was 50/50 for a send off. This is why they should be able to bin them for offences that are just short of a send off.

    That met the indicators of a send off but Latrell's double knock on was insufficient. See this is why I'm getting turned off the NRL week after week. The inconsistency is appalling.

    I think that's the part that annoys me the most...Inconsistency

    It not just the refs either, It's also the MRC and Judiciary who are wildly inconsistent

    In regards to the refs it all depends on who you get

    They all have different interpretations of certain rules hence why we see identical situations with different outcomes game to game

    I'm astounded Soliola did not get sent off.

    Different refs= different interpretation. Should never get calls like that wrong though.
