Album: Leilua Try Shouldn't Have Been Given - Stuart Raper

Referees coach Stuart Raper confirmed Leiulua shouldn&#039;t have been awarded a try against the Warriors.<br /> <br /> Link http://www.nrl.com/official-view-slater-binning-the-right-call/tabid/10874/newsid/67422/default.aspx<br /> <br /> What were your thoughts on Joseph Leilua&#039;s try for the Roosters against the Warriors? Did he and the Warriors defender both ground the ball simultaneously?<br /> <br /> This is probably the toughest call we have had all year. After looking at it many times in slow motion and all the different angles, we believe the decision to award a try was wrong. We don’t believe Leilua had possession of the ball, he did get his hand on the ball, but the Warriors’ player grounds it with his arm. We believe that it was the wrong call. It should have been a line dropout.
