I agree, it's poor form. I think Gidley did the same for us (Wire) and it didn't sit well with me particularly when it's easier to avoid playing it.

Quite embarrassing really

About 10 mins before that Wire milked a penalty from Powell at the play of the ball so the ref made 2 * wrongs = right

Kind of pales when you have Toronto players biting ears...

I don't think that this is the quite the same thing and I 'm not opening up the debate on arm trapping, throwing yourself to the ground at the PTB as think these are all poor form, but, almost turning back to throw the ball at someone who's easily avoided is the cheapest of cheap play

they all accomplish the same thing, last nights decisions were correct because there was intention to slow down the play of the ball. I think Greg in his commentary on this mornings match said it should have been play on but the dummy half was intentionally throwing the ball to the first receiver and he was in the way so it was a penalty, accident or not. There are also accidental offsides which are harshly penalised. Weird decisions are also made when the ball hits the ref. But none of these were as bad as the examples from earlier in the season - such as the throwing of the ball at a player lying on the ground, wish I also remember being a forward pass.

The onus should be on the defending team's players to get back onside. If you're not offside then the ball won't be thrown at you and a penalty won't be awarded against you. Too many players are getting away with being offside at the ptb and cutting down the options for the attacking team.

I agree with you that players are sometimes deliberatejt standing not square at the play the ball or not getting back inside quick enough but I think it’s most annoying when a defender is at the back of the play the ball trying to get out of the way and the acting half deliberately passes the ball into him. For me it should be play on if the pass is going backwards in the same way it’s play on if an attack deliberately runs into an offside but non-participating defender.

It doesn’t sit well with me however, the defender is in an offside position, as he is in a position where the dummy half can throw the ball at him then he is interfering with play therefore it is a penalty but one the ref won’t give unless the ball is thrown at him. The defender who is offside needs to put themselves in a position where they are not interfering with play.
