Signed in to give credit to the umpires. This was an insanely difficult game to umpire. Both sides exceeded 100 tackles. Most of the contests didn't consist of players taking a half a step so they could arrive to the ball second, apply a tackle and claim a free.
There were many technically illegal disposals. But many of these were 'insufficient opportunity'.
A recipe for disaster that called for 'common sense', consistency from the umpiring team and a feel for the game.
I think they did a good job.
Yes, I'm surprised.
