Official View: Preliminary Finals
Referees co-coach Bill Harrigan answers your questions from the Preliminary Finals.
Bulldogs v Rabbitohs
Were you happy with the try awarded to Bulldogs winger Sam Perrett?
Yes, the video referee got this call correct. Sam Perrett runs down the sideline, but it is clear from the footage that he does not touch the line. The replays are conclusive and his foot never comes in contact with the line. It is a fair try.
What did you think of the eight point try awarded to the Bulldogs?
This matter is before the NRL judiciary, so we will not make any comment.
Storm v Sea Eagles
Did Billy Slater knock-on when he dove from dummy-half for the Storm’s second try?
Yes, Slater drops the ball and this try should not have been awarded.
