Duo divided on late call

Nrl
Monday, November 27, 2017

Prop Andrew Fifita refused to complain about the late knock-on call which thwarted his side's stunning comeback in the 20-18 semi-final loss to England, but his coach questioned the process used to get to the decision.

After the ball came loose and Fifita regathered to score what would have been the winning try on the final play of the game, referee Matt Cecchin ruled the NSW enforcer had knocked on rather than had the ball stripped by Elliott Whitehead in the lead-up.

Further evidence suggests the call was correct, and post-match Fifita was quick to move past the issue, linking it to his stunning try in the 2016 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final where, on that occasion, luck favoured him.

"Look, that's football," Fifita said.

"There is going to be controversies, there's going to be everything, I take it on the chin. It is what it is."
