The Brisbane Broncos have lifted eyebrows and a madness of South Sydney fans with their use of a conduct damage comment and some propitious breaks in a 25-24 win over a Rabbitohs.

The debate extended to Anthony Milford’s game-winning margin goal, when it seemed a referees might have missed a knock-on in a lead-up.

Milford was also partial of a argumentative fort statute in a 68th minute, though it all started with an peculiar occurrence with a conduct damage comment (HIA) during a finish of a initial half.

The HIA debacle

In a 38th minute, Milford copped a complicated strike from Sam Burgess.

Awarding a chastisement for a shot was argumentative enough, though after holding a knock, Milford nailed a 20-metre chastisement goal.

Brisbane, already though first-choice goal-kicker Jordan Kahu, authorised Milford to pot a idea before trainers took him from a margin for an HIA.

The focus upheld a concussion exam during a half-time mangle and returned to play on resumption.

Under a rules, a actor contingency leave a margin immediately a impulse a tutor notices any of 5 concussion symptoms.

Milford was seen to by a tutor before holding a flog and it is wholly probable that he showed no signs of concussion before a attempt.

“Sometimes with concussion it doesn’t perceptible true divided — we get a hit and players, a integrate of mins after, don’t feel right. That can happen,” former manager Matthew Elliott pronounced on Grandstand.

“However, we tend to be a small asocial in this sold situation, and we consider that cynicism’s common by some of a people in a burrow.”

The Souths fans were indeed furious, vouchsafing their voices be listened so aloud that military and confidence collected around a referees and teams as they left a margin with a Broncos heading 18-8.

The occurrence is certain to be looked during by a NRL, that had a uninformed crackdown on abuse of a HIA complement progressing this season.

The Titans, Dragons and Knights perceived hundreds of thousands of dollars value of fines for abuse of a concussion protocols.

The fort bungle

Rabbitohs harlot Robbie Farah told Grandstand he felt a group was “probably a bit detrimental with a few calls” and he was really articulate about this one.

Initially ruled a try to Milford, a fort could not see that a focus had grounded a ball.

It seemed a South Sydney defenders had finished adequate to reason adult Milford, though a late round diversion spitting out of a tackle.

Centre Tautau Moga scooped adult a round and crossed, nonetheless a length of time Milford was hold should roughly positively have been adequate for a play to be called dead.

“I don’t know what a statute is there. It’s flattering disappointing,” Farah said.

“We were assured he didn’t get a round down and we flattering most assume a tackle’s finish there — he’s on a belligerent with all a defenders over him.

“It’s another tough call, though a refs will urge it somehow.”

The fort deemed it did not have adequate justification to overturn a on-field preference — nonetheless that was a try to Milford, not Moga.

The final nail

The final spike in a coffin of a severe night for a Rabbitohs was Milford apparently fumbling in a lead-up to his match-winner.

Both teams carrying already missed field-goal shots after Moga’s converted try squared a bill during 24.

The Broncos had another possibility in a 78th minute, when Milford collected a low pass, calculated a right-footed shot and poked a leftie idea to secure a win.

Unfortunately, slow-motion replays left a bit of doubt over only how clean he had collected a pass from manikin half Andrew McCullough.

What do we think?
