I believe that’s the new rules, isn’t it? No stopping untill the trainer signals it’s bad enough to stop or some shit.
pretty sure the trainer is signalling to the sideline for assistance just before the camera pans away to follow the play. Not sure if he was also calling tonthe ref for her to stop the game.

The trainer being in orange wouldn’t have helped matters either I guess as he would have blended in with the Easts players. The ref was not far when the incident occurrred, it showed a real lack of feel or understanding for the situation for mine.
I think they’ll have to amend it to make it so the referee can stop the game if he thinks something bad has happened.

“Should a doctor be required on the field, the head trainer who performs the initial assessment of the player is to attract the attention of the nearest touch judge who can electronically communicate with the referee to advise the injury is of a serious nature."

I can't say too much, but I was at the game in an official capacity. Can confirm it was played to the letter of the new rules which are being trialled until Round 6 (as with the 20/40 rule). Game will only be stopped if the passage of play will come in contact with the downed player.

Can also confirm both doctor and head trainers were calling to linesman to stop the game but were ignored due to the above. Easts trainers and support staff also helped Carlin as well as the Doc, six in total carried him off and attended.

Can confirm that reports were put in that in this instance the game should have been stopped.

Some Nene highlights to get the blood flowing.


Just found some more quotes from Green on Nene from an article, expanding on what he said in the video from the Cowboys website:

"He's had his challenges but I thought he was strong (in Queensland Cup)," Green said.

"For him it is a new club, it's a new way of doing things.

"Time will tell but he is doing the right things and doing his best to tidy up that part of his game."

Also mentioned Nene has had some challenges through the pre season, not sure if that means more than the one time late to training.
I do worry about his attitude, the training no-show is a big red flag. We're his 4th professional club and he's only 24, that doesn't happen by accident. Hopefully they can get him in line because he's a great talent.

There are some people in this world that should not play contact sport.
Yea just like James Tedesco should have just quit when he did his ACL in 2012, or when he had a broken leg the year after, or when he fractured his knee cap the year after, or when he had a shoulder injury and a broken jaw in 2016.

Some players just have rotten luck at the start of their careers and come good. Carlin Anderson is only 23. If he works hard, there's every chance he comes back and gets a real run in the NRL. I get what you are saying about some players being more vulnerable to injuries, but it just seems like such a defeatist attitude to say he shouldn't ever play contact sport again.

The injury he sustained on the weekend wasn't because he was made of glass. He copped a very hard accidental knock with knees to his spine. Purely bad luck as you suggested. He was playing very well until the injury.

I took out a two week trial on my chitty internet. I had to make the decision to change my provider, go onto an unlimited data plan and also swap from Optus Mobile to Telstra mobile with more data and better speed because of our location. All up, it has cost me more but heaps cheaper then Fox. If the stream gets a bit dodgy, I tether it to my mobile and alls good.

It is good to have that insurance of your mobile, and I have only used it once. If you have the NBN or decent ( over 7 mbps ) ADSL you will have no worries.

Meninga should have quit after his 3rd broken arm also...

Good to know, I'm set with my home internet, I think I may be one of the only people in Australia to actually get the 100mbs

And Mal and his cohorts said, we do not need fast internet, copper is good enough. Those that want faster internet just want to watch the Porn.

How is the Porn on fast internet. I am curious.
