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.”

THE business end of the season is fast approaching as the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs host the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.

There'll be no shortage of attacking talent on display as the two Sydney clubs duke it out in a classic Saturday night fixture.

Gather the kids and get out to what's sure to be a cracking game.
