    Of course, Melbourne invented it, Roosters enhanced it and the Queensland team recently took the niggle and deliberate indiscretions to a new level.

    Here is how it works. Send your team out there with clear instructions to dominate every tackle. Lie in the ruck, step over the mark, slap someone, give away offside penalties ... you get the drift. It's going out there with a mind set to play dirty.

    Refs are reluctant to blow lots of penalties, so as long as you have solid defensive structures, there will be many times when the ref will overlook indiscretions. Fair dinkum, in their recent games, refs could have blown 50 penalties per match against them.

    The penalty count last night was fair. If anything, we could have been awarded even more penalties.

      Jwh as he plays the ball puts his head down and tries to walk through the marker thus taking him out of the okay and puting the defenders on the back foot.

        The Roosters coach is on the NRL rules committee.

        Noticed that. JWH is a liability to the game, and cause for concern around other players safety. He has intent to injure. It's not tough, it's moronic. I'm glad he doesn't play for us - he's a goon - nothing more.

          I also noticed Guerra with his hands between the legs lifting in most of his tackles in the 1st half.

          Roosters are one of the grubbiest teams going atm. Any wonder players like Crocker, Carney, JWH & Ferguson end up there.

            Walking off the mark has become a major problem in the game and the refs are reluctant to do anything about it. I'd love to see them apply the same rule they have brought in for play on infringements after held is called. Blow the whistle, make them take the ball back to the mark and play it again. That takes all the sting out of the quick roll on and allows the defence to reset and markers get in proper position. Apply that 2 or 3 times and warn them each time, then start penalising them if they persist. The Roosters were doing it all night and didn't get pinged once, not to mention some very dubious play the balls that didn't get picked up either. Slater and Inglis are other serial offenders, very rarely get straight to their feet to play it, always taking a step forward or sideways to try and isolate the markers and draw a penalty. It annoys the hell out of me and it is such an obvious breach of the rules.

              They were pulling teams up for it last year, but that was obliviously the flavour of the season. This year they seem to be able to march a good metre forward.

              The fact that Robinson is on the committee is a joke. No current coach should be on that panel

                But... But....

                Rabs says it's only a "technical breach" of the rules so I guess that makes it ok?!?!

                  How difficult would it be for the NRL to come down on this, next round start penalising and then start binning if it continued.

                  It would be rubbed out in one round!!

                  The first penalty of the game was against Manly after SBW walked off the mark and planted the ball down behind the marker's foot. A few minutes later near the Roosters line Manly got penalised for a strip (that wasn't) and Lyon tried at that point to get Hayne to act on SBW's cheating. Hayne marched Manly 10m for Lyon talking to him. Sixty minutes later after Pearce's try Lyon again took on Hayne over SBW's cheating. Hayne told Lyon he never saw any of that happening.

                  SBW just doesn't walk off the mark. When tackled he plants the ball way in front of himself before he even gets to his feet, trying to get a quick play the ball or a penalty. The rule is you have to get to your feet before playing the ball. But given Shayne Hayne in Origin was giving Jarryd Hayne penalties for doing exactly the same thing you have to wonder what the NRL referees do all week as it can't be looking over game tapes.

                  Seems cheating is ok for some to get away with. You can bet if Watmough or Buhrer were doing what SBW gets away with it would be a penalty every time against them.

                  The ruck is a joke.

                  No coincidence that the favoured teams get away with murder; and referees are out and out complicit with this form of cheating.

                  We weren't getting penalised that much last night because we having a mindset of playing a good, clean game of footy. As was mentioned last night, we have a team of footballers that know how to read, adjust and play the game.

                  Later in the season, it will worry me dearly if the opposition is getting away with cheating for 75 min of a game. Yeah, they may get penalised 4 5 6 times a game but it's just flat out cheating if the ref just decides to stop blowing the whistle just because it looks like the penalty count is getting out of hand.

                  Time for our club to ask for some clarification. Is an infringement not an infringement, just because the other team has been penalised too much already?

                  It's time to stamp out this rubbish from our game.

                  Making players play the ball again if they play the ball over the mark is a good start.
