“I feel it’s a strive however I’ve been arguing that for the final 15 years. It’s everyone else who’s been arguing that it is a no-try and each time they’ve that, they rule it a no-try. In the event that they’re going to be constant that that’s a strive, I’m pleased with it but it surely’s completely inconsistent with the rule they’ve had lately,” he mentioned on 100% Footy.

“On the finish of the day, I imagine that’s a strive. I imagine the defence put itself the place it needed to, the decoy runner did its job, they created house for the quick man on the skin and he ran round our defence and scored a strive. I feel that’s what decoy runners are supposed to do.

“This outside-shoulder, inside-shoulder garbage is ridiculous.

“The distinction is that each time that has occurred within the final 10 years – and I’ve blown up about it each time it’s occurred – they’ve dominated it no strive. Why did they rule it a strive final evening in the event that they’ve dominated it no strive each different time? I don’t know.”

He acquired his timing unsuitable,” Fitzgibbon mentioned on 100% Footy.

“However our intent was undoubtedly to not take Mitchell out of the sport; it was simply to place him below strain.

“He’s such an exquisite participant and such an vital a part of their group and their major kicker. So, we clearly didn’t need to give, notably within the first half down their finish, Mitchell Moses a free rein together with his kicking sport, as a result of it might be an extended afternoon for us.

“You possibly can’t assault the legs of the kicker. It’s fairly clear. It shouldn’t be within the sport and on that event we acquired that one unsuitable. We have to get higher at that, we’d like to have the ability to strain the kicker safely.
