Proof! Freeze frames show Raiders were robbed!
« on: June 05, 2017, 03:23:31 PM »


Freeze frames taken from the live coverage of the Raiders vs Manly match on Fox League clearly show the Raiders were robbed in Golden Point.

As Junior Paulo made a huge charge through the Manly defence, two Manly defenders attempted to tackle him. As they attempted to make the tackle, Akuila Uate can clearly be seen stripping the ball out of Paulo's hands while another Manly defender is holding him around the shoulders. This is clearly a strip with two defenders in the tackle.

Instead, it was incorrectly ruled a lost ball from Paulo and the Sea Eagles were gifted a scrum deep in the Raiders half.

Manly halfback Daly Cherry-Evans quickly slotted the field goal in the next set, winning the game for the Sea Eagles in highly controversial fashion.

The terrible call is just the latest in a long list of incorrect decisions the Raiders have been on the end of and comes after Raiders coach Ricky Stuart exposed cheating tactics in the ruck in the week leading up to the match.
