Did video ruin try of the finals?

Melbourne Storm fans are in mourning after a dismall display in the NRL's elimination finals, with the video referee certainly not easing the pain after ruling out this brilliant Storm try

THIS could have been the try of the finals. It could have got the Storm back into it. Then the video ref did what everyone hoped he wouldn't.

He let the super slo mo do its work and convinced himself Jesse Bromwich had knocked on into Josh Reynolds.

No matter which way you look at it — and to be fair to the men in the video box, there was evidence to suggest a tad of separation after the ball hit Bromwich's hands and then Reynolds' chest, which would constitute a knock on — it was hard not to feel duped as a fan.

Was the video referee right to deny Sisa Waqa?

With the Storm down 24-4, they attacked uninhibited, chasing a try that might just get them back into it.

The ball went right and was knocked down by a Bulldogs player — six again.

The ball went left and hit Reynolds and Bromwich almost simultaneously, before popping out behind Bromwich — another six again call.

Flying winger Marika Koroibete picked up the ball and ran infield, then accelerated into a right foot step that split the Bulldogs' defensive line.

As he was falling to the deck, the Fijian got a super ball to countryman and opposite winger Sisa Waqa.

Waqa went over for the most exhilarating of tries!

Then it went upstairs and the magic was gone.
