    I thought both send offs were warranted. I’m sorry, but if you have been warned, and then sent off for 2 minutes, you have NO CHOICE but to reel it in. It doesn’t matter if you agree with the “call” or not, the umpires have given the warnings…..it’s the rule of the game.

    IMO the Giants lost it for themselves. Harten should have opted for the 1 point, as they had the next C pass (according to the commentators).

    I love Sue, Cath and Liz commentating. But their comments tonight, on the incident, were bullshit IMO. They got too caught up in the actual call, than the process of how and why the player HAD to be sent off.
    Manu’a was on her last legs, which means all eyes were going to be on her. Any late challenges from then onwards, was always going to be harshly dealt with. It’s no different to what happened to Temepara Bailey in the WC.

    TBH I’m surprised Julie F didn’t replace her, going into the last qtr. They had sufficient backup.
