‘Wow, just wow’: Costly Bunker call stuns Gould

The Roosters have been left to ponder what could have been after a try was rubbed out during their 22-16 loss to the Panthers at Allianz Stadium on Tuesday night.

Joseph Manu looked to have crossed over in the 23rd minute after muscling his way over the Panthers defence.

However, the Bunker soon intervened, wiping off the score after deeming Jared Waerea-Hargreaves to have impeded Dylan Edwards at the back of the play.

“Wow, just wow,” Phil Gould said on Nine’s coverage. 

Panthers winger Sunia Turuva opened the scoring at Allianz Stadium, utilising his height against Daniel Tupou to score on the right edge.

Dylan Edwards was in next for Penrith, maneuvering his way around the Roosters defence and putting in a grubber before taking the long way around to score himself. Not long after, Edwards added an extra two points with a penalty goal.

On the stroke of half-time, Sam Walker put in his own deft grubber close to the line with Sitili Tupouniua winning a foot race with Turuva to ground the ball before the dead ball line.

Walker followed up with the conversion as the Panthers took a 14-6 lead into the main break.

In a moment of déjà vu, Turuva scored the first try of the second half before a successive effort completed his hat-trick.

Mavrik Geyer, son of Penrith legend Mark, made his first-grade debut when he was injected into the match in the 50th minute.

A late run of tries from Brandon Smith and Daniel Tupou swung the momentum but the Roosters left their run too late as the clock ran down.
