At knox, appears the referee in Knox vs Cranbrook has left his glasses at home. Number of offsides not called that have lead to cranbrook putting points on the board and knox penalised for everything with the cranbrook penalty count remains at 2
Could've (should've?) been a bigger margin based on the way both teams played. Knox were awful. About the only players who could hold their heads up were the backrow of Grobler, Breden and Gratwicke as well as Cheal (who played lock). Backs in particular showed very little flair and the 10 just kept kicking the ball away. As usual this season they lacked ball control and patience.
For Cranbrook, their 15 was excellent - but then he did get kicked to in open space constantly!, the backrow was good at the breakdown, the 4 had some strong runs, and both props played well too. All up great commitment from all the team. You could tell they wanted it more.
On a side note, the refereeing was very ordinary and inconsistent - worst officiated game I've seen this season. Knox really copped it, not that I think it would have changed the result - Cranbrook were simply the better team - but it did affect momentum.
With the results from the other games today Knox will have to play out of their skins to win one this season...
