Did The Refs Just Cost Canberra The Grand Final?

Bateman's hopes of winning a successive Grand Final were crushed as Sydney Roosters claimed a controversial 14-8 win over Canberra in front of a sell-out Grand Final crowd of 82,982 at ANZ Stadium.

Cooper Cronk was sin-binned during the 2019 NRL Grand Final.

It was one of those tough calls, with players from each side contesting a high Raiders kick. He could be heard saying "last tackle" on five occasions, however the Raiders were oblivious.

But the Roosters defence did not concede without the veteran on the field and it was the team's defence that ground out the win.

The Roosters hung in well and after Cummins changed a back-to-one call, they took the lead when Daniel Tupou broke down the left and found the supporting Tedesco.

"But I accept it created confusion among the Canberra players". "I'd be pretty shattered if I was the Raiders because the next set Tedesco scores".

'The best player on the field got the award, ' Stuart said.

The mood changed when Strowman was attack from behind by Dolph Ziggler, who the "The Monster Among Men" sent spinning into Fury. Tyson Fury jumped out of the crowd and was held back by security as he directed words at WWE star Braun Strowman .

Nine colleague Peter Sterling said the incident highlighted the perils of having more than one referee on the ground. It was a really good game of football tonight, we could've won it, we didn't. "And it's a very empty feeling losing a grand final".

Cronk said he always believed the diamond-encrusted ring, which was designed this year by former North Queensland great Johnathan Thurston, would turn up. Souths co-owner Russell Crowe took to twitter to describe it as a "horseshit result".

The Kiwi Roosters prop was allegedly mistakenly told he had won the votes of Australian selectors Laurie Daley, Mal Meninga and Darren Lockyer.

"It's been an emotional week with the chat just before", Cronk said.

A converted try from Sam Verrills and penalty from Latrell Mitchell put the Roosters ahead, but Jack Wighton's try and the conversion from Jarrod Croker ensured the Raiders trailed by just two at the break. "Because they would have awarded six again. The fact is that play and the contact from the kick did not warrant the awarding of six more tackles".

Cronk was deemed by the video referee to have committed a professional foul on Josh Papalii for tackling him before the prop could take a pass 10 metres from the line, resulting in the former Australia worldwide being sin-binned and Croker kicking the goal. And he the said decision to give the Roosters a scrum feed after the ball hit the club's trainer Travis Touma, was the correct application of the rules.
