The ABC brings word that Raiders’ coach David Furner’s epic sulk after losing to the Storm in round one has now extended to wanting to break one of the most important rules of sport, that what goes on the field stays on the field:
The Raiders coach says that in such a competitive year, re-calibrating the for-and-against tallies may mean the difference between a club making the finals or not.
“With that try that was awarded to the Storm and the one disallowed to the Raiders, is there a chance that although in that case the Storm get the two points that you get to rectify your for-and-against?” Furner said.
“If it needed to be awarded a try and it wasn’t, or vice versa, there could be a way there to take four points away or six points away or add, which will affect the for or against.”
Furner did not say if he intended to raise it directly with NRL officials, but feels it should be an issue up for discussion.
Because judicial review of every single game is just what the world needs.
