All tied up and on to ANZ stadium for the decider.

Reading today that the first half last night went for 47 minutes and 45 seconds.

Someone is having a lend of you, either that, or read it again

It would be front page news if the half somehow went for 7 minutes 45 seconds too long, even with the incompetence we sometimes see, it would be pretty much impossible for them to fuck up like that

I didn't say I believed it. Only that I read it, and it's not as if accounts of the timing inconsistency during the game were hard to find:

The Channel 9 clock as Moloney threw his forward pass read 36.18.



and immediately after that the Channel 9 clock reverted back to 31.16 :



Then a few minutes later Trbojevic scored his second try in what Channel 9 were showing as the 35th minute.


The official word from Channel 9 themselves:

"Our State of Origin clock was displaying the incorrect time for a period of the first half due to an issue with our provider. The issue was quickly resolved and the correct time shown for the rest of the half."

OOPS!

George Burgess looks like he will be in for a long holiday.

Penalty to be announced shortly.

NRL counsel pointing out Burgess has 50 per cent loading to his name given similar misconduct last year. Claiming the latest offence should sit in the 800-1000 points range. With loading that's 12-15 weeks out. However, given Burgess has plead guilty, he is entitled to 25 per cent discount.

Burgess's lawyer arguing a 500-600 point penalty is sufficient. With loading that's a 7-9 week ban, however with a guilty plea discount that will be reduced by 25%.

The judiciary panel has now left to deliberate. Decision not far away.

The judiciary panel has been deliberating 15 minutes now. Still waiting to be called back in to hear the verdict. The general feeling among the media is that this will be closer to 10 weeks than 5 or 6.

awesome win by the blues. its so hard being a blues fan. win or lose you always end up screaming at the tv. :yep
fucking pierce... its like the guy has no forward gears. hes got that greg bird syndrome where people think just because hes trying hard hes a good player, completely ignoring the fact that we lose all forward momentum every time the cunt touches the ball and that hell cost you at least 6 handovers a game. i nearly cried when he was picked and again when i realised theyd handed him kicking duties despite the fact maloneys kicking was millimetre perfect last game. ahh well. at least we won.
