Archer discusses Bunker Decisions
NRL referees boss Tony Archer admits the bunker should have overturned the Josh Jackson try in the Sydney Roosters’ four-point loss to the Bulldogs last Thursday.
Roosters coach Trent Robinson questioned the decision after the game and argued that Michael Lichaa had interfered with Guerra in the struggle to force the ball and that the try should have been disallowed.
On Monday, Archer agreed.
“There was a live decision of try and what the review officials had to look at is whether a defender was impeded," Archer said.
“They assessed it and determined that there was no impediment of Aiden Guerra.
“However after reviewing it, I’m of the opinion that once Michael Lichaa touches the hand of Guerra, he’s impeded him, so subsequently it should’ve been overturned.”
