Matt Cecchin punished for making right call*

Matt Cecchin has been sensationally axed from officiating the 2017 RLWC Final after making the CORRECT decision last week in the England vs Tonga thriller.

The incident occurred in the final seconds of the match, with Andrew Fifita appearing to have been stripped of possession whilst in the act of scoring a try.

Matt Cecchin ruled a knock-on; Cecchin should be rewarded for calling it how he saw it. In the end, the correct call was made as replays confirmed a loose carry from Fifita.

The Hayne Plane takes flight…again

Jarryd Hayne isn’t a plane. Jarryd Hayne isn’t a train. Jarryd Hayne isn’t a…okay, you get the idea. Jarryd Hayne is a tumour.

A few months ago, Jarryd Hayne told the Gold Coast board it’s either him or Neil Henry. As a result, Henry was sacked.

Today… Jarryd Hayne quit the club. Classless. And whoever made the decision to axe Henry should pay the consequences. A good coach and a good man lost his job as well as everything he created on the Gold Coast.

The Titans looked in great condition to build towards something big before signing Jarryd Hayne late last season.

Are the Newcastle Knights now a top eight threat with the addition of Mitchell Pearce?**

The Newcastle Knights have killed two birds with one stone with the signing of Mitchell Pearce.

Firstly, they have now shaken off fears they’d be fined for being too far under the cap in season 2018 after it was revealed several weeks ago the club was $2,000,000 under the cap for next year.

Secondly, they have the final piece to the puzzle. The addition of Pearce to their roster puts the club in great condition to make a run for the top eight.

Shaun Johnson apologises

Shaun Johnson has apologised for lashing out at New Zealand and Rugby League fans in general after an embarrassing exit from his 2017 World Cup campaign.

I was generally surprised at the sincerity and genuineness of the apology.

Upon hearing of the apology, I was expecting nothing more than a PR response. Kudos to you, Shaun.

        • And I can post a stream of YOUR bigoted foul mouthed tirades that ended up closing the site down you tr0ll. Just vanish. NO ONE wants you here. You are a joke!

        • I’ll take that as admission of your sheer ignorant bigotry.

          Because I object to a bigoted comment, I’m a tr0ll?

          Someone who HABITUALLY uses this website to routinely find opportunities to express their uncalled for bigoted views is very much a tr0ll. & that would be YOU.

          If you think I have the power to, or interest in, shutting this site down, you are entirely delusional.

        • After a week of posting you again target just one person , there have been many examples of immaturity/ bigotry prior to SSTID posting his opinion delivered without malice and with humour however , you only choose and have only ever chose to target him, I wasn’t going to respond because silence is best when dealing with your type but I’m going to have my say and then be gone of you , there are mechanisms by which you can express your objection to a post yet you refuse to use them , your angle is to provoke publicly and to draw your victim to your level , you need to stop, nobody endorses the way you pursue one individual constantly, do what I have done and continue to do and use those avenues open to all of us if you don’t like what’s posted , maybe don’t bother because I have never ever read anything you have posted that relates to rugby league , il remind you of your motives and take you back to 2015 where you attacked me not for my views , opinion but my punctuation, you singled me out , not everyone just me , so please enjoy the site , contribute if your a genuine fan and if something’s bothers you report it , PLEASE !

        • MW47: I have clearly upset you but you chose to reply.

          Yet I can’t do the same?

          Perhaps you could have saved yourself the effort of your essay-long objection & simply follow your own advice.

          I have little interest in anything you have to say.

        • I wanted my post clear for all to read , you haven’t upset me at all , if you had any humility you would have apologised (believing what you have stated) but being you you haven’t , save yourself, I’m not hitting report because I want all to view for themselves what I’ve expressed , as usual you haven’t accepted the facts I’ve included in my assignment, that’s your choice and your response is exactly what I wanted , how about you focus on someone else now because your agenda has expired

        • You have conveniently ignored the reason for my objection. I objected to this reader very questionably using a article such as this as an opportunity to express his homophobic & political views YET AGAIN.

          I have no interest in your advice &, seeing you are quite obsessed with defending this reader, you should know I did not need your advice to report the comment. I reported it the minute I read it & then emailed ZT to express my utter disgust at posts of this nature. I agree with you ENTIRELY: this is a rugby league forum & should remain solely that.

          NOTHING you have posted has ANYTHING to do with my original objection. I have no idea what you think you are achieving with your completely unrelated posts.

        • &, if you think I should “apologise” for calling a spade a spade, I wouldn’t hold my breath if i were you.

          I don’t care how many readers like you post in this person’s defence. It doesn’t make bigotry right, just popular. Ignorance can be like that.

        • It’s obvious ZT dosnt agree , post is still there , your embarrassing yourself , your blinded with hate and it’s there in black and white , stop being so selective in your crusade for justice , you constantly single out one person , it’s your agenda ,not a healthy mind set you should talk to someone about it

        • Yeah, ZT doesn’t seem to care – doesn’t make it right. & if you think I am obsessed in my “crusade,” you’d have to confess being equally obsessed in defending this one contributor. I got your point in your first post. You’ve chosen to ignore mine in EVERY post of yours. Goodnight, MW47.

        • There was a test final last night , you contributed nothing , there was so much you could have said but chose not to , that’s becuse everything I’ve stated above about your agenda is accurate , “ZT doesn’t care” it’s very clear your deluded on this one ,” obsessed with defending my mates “I take that as a compliment, I can also guarantee if there’s anyone on this earth you’d want next to you in the trenches it’s me , I boast that with total pride! after my family, my mates my friends take pride and I will always defend them till the end , you have proven quite clearly what you are , your not a nice person that doesn’t mean you can’t change or deserve another go but you need to start at the mirror , good luck I honestly mean that

  1. Or maybe Cecchin was dropped for his poor performance in the 79 minutes of football prior to his correct call.

    And maybe a few months ago Hayne was committed to the Titans, when both he and Henry declared they couldn’t work together (it wasn’t just Hayne). However, since then his daughter’s mother has moved to Sydney and as such Hayne is moving to stay involved in his child’s life (as reported by many non telegraph journalists). I’m not a Hayne fan but if that is the reasoning behind his move hard to call it classless.

  2. Someone’s voted NO ! NO ceccin in WC Final
    Good I say cause whilst he may have got the last 10sec of WC Semi last week right the 79.50 mins before were fraudulent ! Yes I would also say no to ceccin
