Rapana runs us through that final minute try saver. 💪 #9WWOS #NRL
Canberra fans are so desperate to end their laughable trophy drought that they’re celebrating an asterisk win against the Eels that should have seen a penalty try for a Rapana shoulder charge and a sin binning for Williams cheating. Like their coach - a pathetic whinging fanbase.
@PhilGould15 There is no potential with the offside, he was offside. That is a black and white decision and a human error. Happy to live with it as it happens. Browns involvement was minimal. The Rapana tackle is a grey area, high speed collision that could be debated for an age.
Jordan Rapana produces match winning tackle for Raiders to secure victory over Eels
“If we don’t get any more bad Raiders coach confident of finals berth following third-straight win. STORY: #NRL #NRLEelsRaiders
@P_Glo @SparkyDenied i reckon in years to come we will have the most exciting backs to watch they have heaps of speed and so strong great to watch now, rapana is a good mentor for the boys
The @NRLBunker deemed this a legal tackle by rapana and that he didn’t commit a shoulder charge #nrl
@ric_bunga Tapine and Harawira-Naera were amazing. Thought starling and Rapana were brilliant too.
I was curious of Rapana as fullback considering speed, stamina etc definitely not heart FK ME SIDEWAYS LEGEND
Is Jordan Rapana a better fullback than James Tedesco? I’m not at liberty to say but yes.
@FOXNRL @RaidersCanberra That’s a robbery but not the blatant shoulder charge by rapana what a joke brown doesn’t even get involved in the play Henry panara is a rock spider
@Sixties2153 The rapana play almost looked like a trip to me, no attempt to wrap and threw his leg out at the ball carrier
@musso_07 @ReadingThePlay Rapana very lucky, he lead with the knee and it somehow missed and hit with the
Controversy Corner : A gritty and gripping struggle between Eels and Raiders was highlighted by a man of the match performance by Rapana who helped keep the Raiders season alive as they gutsed out a narrow win.
@ryantjansen Mate, rewatch it. The only reason that cunt’s hip even makes contact is because his knee hit so hard. It’s exactly the same contact that Brown was penalised and suspended for. The only difference is Brown hit ribs, Rapana hit obliques.
Plenty will be made about that final tackle by Jordan Rapana. Hips do just as much damage as shoulders. But I thought it was great. I actually forgot about COVID for 80 minutes ...
So Brayden Trindall gets hit with an 8 point try last week for the softest of love taps, given by Perenara. But Henry saw nothing wrong with that tackle by Rapana. Im speechless.
That was deadset a shoulder charge from Rapana. It shouldn’t matter that he didn’t make contact. It was an attempted shoulder charge. They’re banned because of the damage they can do. We should be penalising any attempts at a shoulder charge, not just the ones that make contact
Thank you Jordan Rapana for a great Raiders victory 🥳👍✅✅✅✅✅✅
The simple question is, did Rapana attempt a tackle? Or will the NRL issue another statement that the officials got it wrong? Either way the result won’t change. #NRLEelsRaiders
@GorskiOPork @RaidersCanberra Good thing no one took your Rapana to reserve grade call seriously.
@Burtyfan it’s a load of bs. dylbags did the same thing to Hutchinson a few weeks ago and everyone was calling for his head. Rapana does it and is hailed a hero
Surely Rapana had no arms wrapping for that? Oh well, payback for Brown being offside. Parra are pretenders 🤣🤣🤣
Re @RaidersCanberra Rapana last ditch tackle v @TheParraEels ...If leading with shoulder and no arm wrap, penalty try. But if leading with knee/hip and no arm wrap, is ok? Will defer to those more knowledgeable. Better team won.
Raiders deserved to win but that was very dodgy from Rapana - wasn’t a shoulder charge but not a legit tackle either #nrl #nrleelsraiders
@TheParraEels @JJfarmequipment Rapana is a dog. It was an attempted shoulder charge. However BA needed to pull Jake earlier & put Smith on. He wasn’t ready for the intensity of tonights game.
@Bradenjbrady That was Raiders game from the start. Momentum only shifted when the ref gave a few set restarts for the Eels around the 20th min in the second half Even handed them an offside try Rapana said hell no to your script NRL 🙅♂️
Rapana made contact legs first. The intent to shoulder charge was there. If he connects, that’s a penalty try everyday of the week. #NRLEelsRaiders
brown does the same tackle as rapana on hutchinson and everyone says its a dirty tackle. Whats the difference? #NRLEelsRaiders
