At first thought, it looks like the ball went forward and Lyon was positioned with his side towards the players.

What are your thoughts on the decision?? Did Lyon knock the ball forward or back??

Upon seeing the footage a thousand times, the ball definitely did not go forward, but didn't go backwards too visibly, it was in line, which would generally mean it's not a knock on.
Video refs get decisons wrong all the time, I think RL is used to it by now.

Simpkind got dropped, which would generally assume he got the decision wrong.

I think it was line call. The way that Lyon was facing and the position of his hands made it hard to definitely say it was a knock on or back. If he ruled the other way we'd prob still be in the same position. I don't think he deserved the sack over it but.

If the ref calls a knock-on on the spot we dont hear another word of it. Knock ons like that are called up every week. Obviously im biased but Im happy with the call. Unlucky for Manly but we were the better team anyway.

50/50 call i say. It went our way this time. Every club has experienced some tough decisions in their time, you just can't stop them i guess.

This whole thing has been blown out of proportion.

To say that Manly were 'robbed' is stupid. What's to say that Cowboys kick the kick off dead or regain the ball and score? Saying they were 'robbed' is a naive statement if you ask me.

Plus William Hopoate takes Bowen out of a bombing contest, it's given line drop out and Manly score off it.

Then Matai clearly has his foot on the line but the touchie missed it for some reason.

It all evens itself out, but personally I was alright with the call anyway, most neutral league fans are 50/50 on the call.

Quite pixelated but it still clearly shows that the ball is knocked on?
