VIDEO: Johnathan Thurston 'We Were Robbed'
Johnathan Thurston is stunned by the referees decision in Manly Cowboys clash, Video: Fox Sports News
Johnathan Thurston says the Cowboys "were robbed" after two poor refereeing decisions in their semi final versus Manly.
In the slow motion replay shown on Fox Sports News the Cowboys captain can be seen pointing at Kieran Foran moments before Sea Eagles Michael Oldfield dives over for a try in the 63rd minute.
"That didn't touch his hand? That didn't touch his hand? That's twice, mate. We're being robbed," a bewildered Thurston can be overheard saying from ref Shayne Hayne's microphone
You be the video ref, watch the video and make a decision...try or no try?
Matty Johns says it was "one of the season's greatest blunders" with Mark Geyer saying the NRL need to give benefit of the doubt to the defending team.
