State of Origin - Game One 2012

A drop, a fumble, a kick, another fumble, and then a try. Certainly doesn't sound like a try and it didn't look like one either. Greg Inglis' try for the Maroons in Game one of the 2012 State of Origin series was awarded despite replays suggesting otherwise. With the man himself later admitting, "I knew I had fumbled it".

    The Boxing thing in the Olympics can't have been in 1985 ( 84 or 88 ) also the French forward pass. If the ball was perhaps knocked out by the All Black making the tackle then its not a forward pass. I'm a Kiwi and we got payback anyway last year 8-7

    Easybeats got done again and now they are sooking I am a victorian and do not give a rats who won but I always thought there was less points for a try than the winning margin

    Amazing how many cheats there are and how many refs are being paid under the table. And if you think it doesn't happen then you are stupid as well as ignorant.

    A TRY. and it didn't cost the game....did it? I thought the ref was a bit towards the Blues with the hold downs in tackles. Reg, the joke seems to be your Blues coach......what has he done as a coach? A great player but thats it.
