Forward pass technology trial 'not far off' as Annesley concedes try error

Graham Annesley has conceded the Warriors scored a crucial try from a forward pass against Canberra and said the NRL plans to trial technology to eliminate such errors.

While the NRL head of football stressed that technology to determine forward passes won't be used in a 2021 Telstra Premiership match, he said it could be tested in a training session sometime this year.

"We are making progress and we have been talking to a company for quite some time. I'm hopeful that we're not that far off a trial, a test of the technology," Annesley said at his Monday media briefing.

"And then, if we get to that point and we can be convinced that the technology is accurate, it becomes a business case that we have to minute to the [ARL] Commission to justify the expenditure and the benefit that will flow ... if the Commission was to approve it."

That's likely to come as cold comfort for the Raiders, who lost 34-31 at home on Saturday after the on-field officials missed Kodi Nikorima's forward pass to hand Ben Murdoch-Masila a 60th-minute try.
