Robbed. Absolute bullshit corruption and refs not knowing the rules at its finest. I dunno why the players even bother anymore when time and time again this season we have been *ed over by bullshit refereeing. Klein was a disaster in the bunker all game but the NRL will come up with some bullshit excuse to explain the ending as usual.

Shocking decision. Klown is a campaigner and the ref shouldn't get near first grade again.

Absolutely disgraceful call. I hate video review in any sport, and this is exactly why.

How about Annesley coming out and saying the challenge was allowed even though the rules specifically state that it wasn't.

That was to stop the tigers from challenging them in court

My sympathies with Tigers fans. You were robbed. Once again the Bunker got it wrong, the off field officials take all the time in the world and have several camera angles on which to base their call and they still cannot get it right.

Time to ditch the Captain's Challenge, which is a farce anyway, and only use the Bunker to adjudicate on the things they can get right such as grounding of tries and touchline calls. The escort and interference rules are bullshit anyway as half the time the player supposedly impeded has no hope of reaching the ball carrier anyway.

Of course it would help a lot if the people in the Bunker knew the bloody rules.

My sympathy guys, you were robbed.

See how well we were lead around the park by a competent halfback.

and Doueihi should never be played anywhere but 5-8th ever again.

It shows we don't need Brooks but Benji seems to like him so he will probably be around for years to come.

I think offloading that contract is the issue. We have to make out itโ€™s worth a punt to another club rather than call it the outright bust it is.

I don't know where he could go but surely we could talk it up as him needing a good halves partner to take the pressure off him.

NRL 2022: Tim Sheensโ€™ plan to retain halfback Luke Brooks on less money​

Rivals are circling but the Tigers are adamant playmaker Luke Brooks will stay at the club โ€“ likely at a reduced price to his mammoth 2023 contract.
Tim Sheens has issued a hands off warning to the Newcastle Knights, insisting Luke Brooks will be staying at Wests Tigers next season.
And despite Brooks last month hinting his time at the club might be coming to an end, Sheens said the Tigers are keen to extend his contract beyond 2023, when he is due to earn a reported $1.1 million.
โ€œObviously everyone would prefer for it to be at less money,โ€ Sheens said.
โ€œBut we can sit down and negotiate with him and extend his contract out.โ€
It comes in the countdown to Sundayโ€™s clash between the two clubs amid renewed speculation that the Knights are still desperate to tempt Brooks out of the Tigers for 2023.
The talk wonโ€™t go away that Brooks may have played his last game for the Tigers after going down with a season-ending calf injury last week.
Knights legend Andrew Johns was a driving force in trying to entice Brooks to Newcastle at the end of last year following Mitchell Pearceโ€™s shock departure.
Johns went on the record saying he thought Brooks needed a change of scenery and that he could help the gameโ€™s most maligned playmaker fulfil his massive potential.
Johns recently signed an extension to stay on Adam Oโ€™Brienโ€™s coaching staff next season, and some in Newcastle believe signing Brooks could be the key to saving Oโ€™Brienโ€™s job as huge pressure builds on the Knights coach.
It was Sheens who stepped in last year and declared that Brooks would not be released.
Now Sheens has doubled down, adamant he and Tigers coach-in-waiting Benji Marshall want Brooks long term.
โ€œI will stand by what I said,โ€ Sheens said.
โ€œOn the record, he is contracted. Point blank.
โ€œHe is contracted to us next year. And I expect him to turn up for pre-season training.โ€
Sheens was just as confident that he and Benji could help bring the best out in Brooks, just as Johns thinks he can.
He even reminded us that under Ivan Cleary in 2018 Brooks was crowned Dally M halfback of the year.
โ€œRing Benj, he will tell you,โ€ Sheens said. โ€œLook, I rate the kid. He is a one club player.
โ€œI think we can certainly between Marshall and myself bring him back into the game as the seven he was and he is.โ€
Asked if he could guarantee Brooks would be at the club next season, Sheens added: โ€œUnless the world changes that is what I am doing.
โ€œHonestly, can I ever say yes to anything? No one can.
โ€œBut I am not indicating (he is leaving) and I have told you, I mean it, I like the kid and I want him in the side.
โ€œBenji loves him and wants him in the side. But we canโ€™t say any more than that.โ€
Sheens said it was his intention to keep Brooks and Doueihi together as the halves combination, with Jackson Hastings the ball playing lock.
Sheens also has a good opinion of young Jock Madden but sees him as a work in progress given his limited experience.
Brooks, Doueihi and Hastings are all off contract at the end of next season, along with fullback Daine Laurie.
That is why Sheens insisted interim coach Brett Kimmorley moved Hastings to lock to accommodate all of them in the starting side before the club started any extension talks.
Unfortunately that plan has been put on hold with both Brooks and Hastings suffering season ending injuries.
โ€œThat is the only thing I really stood up and said,โ€ Sheens explained. โ€œI am not taking credit for it or anything like that.
โ€œAll I am saying is I said that was the way it was going to happen.
More Coverage
โ€œWe needed to look at it for the rest of this year before we made a decision (on the future) because I thought that was the best way it would work.
โ€œAnd certainly with me coaching next year that will be the way it is going to work. It is only unfortunate now we have a situation with two of them out for the year.โ€

I sincerely hope he keeps Brooks away from Newcastle. Please and thank you.
