So Greg Bird gets backed in off the map to win man of the match.

Yet, Robbie Farah EASILY won the players man of the match, and many , many and many commentators, analysts and punters clearly saw Farah as the man of the match.

Farah made 64 tackles to Birds 32

Farah had a clear hand in the blues 1st try. Farah's kicking game was superb in when in QLD's half.

Bird made some very very simple drop balls.

Bird was solid, but not as good as Farah as evident by him winning the players player award.

Maybe the same judges for the MOM award were the same ones in the Pacman fight..

Where money is involved, there will always be corruption....

Pacman

Thought Farah should have won but Bird had a great game minus a few drop balls.

No where near as good as Farah. Every single commentator , punter and analyst i heard talk about it, said it should have been Farah.

If it was 50/50 or very dubious, then i wouldnt bother, but this is very very clear....

Remember this? Apparently this is legit as well....

A MYSTERY punter landed a huge betting plunge last weekend when a Channel Nine television producer was left to pick the man of the match in the Wests Tigers-Newcastle game.

We can today reveal a punter walked into a Randwick TAB shortly before the game last Sunday and backed Tigers forward Chris Heighington from $34 to $9 to win the man of the match.

Heighington kept firming from $34 to $21 to $13 to $11 to $9 as the punter outlaid a series of bets of up to $500. He collected around $30,000, but would have won more had the TAB not restricted his bets. He originally tried to put $2000 on at $34.

The punter won after Channel Nine named Heighington man of the match ahead of hooker Robbie Farah, who most believed was clearly the best player.

Sportsbet boss Craig Nugent confirmed the TAB has conducted an investigation into the plunge and has spoken to senior officials at the NRL. They found nothing untoward had occurred.

"We always check the markets when there has been a big price movement,'' said Nugent. "There has been a successful result for some punters, who were betting in 100s and not thousands.

"Sometimes there's conjecture, sometimes there isn't. Channel Nine determines the result. Sometimes it's clearcut, sometimes it isn't.''

The TAB confirmed it was the biggest plungeon man of the match in a club game for years. An investigation has revealed Channel Nine's commentators Peter Sterling and Ben Ikin could not split the two Tigers.

So producer Brad McNamara made the decision to give Heighington the award. Brad McNamara is a former NSW Shield cricketer but has no real background in rugby league.

His lack of league credentials begs the question as to why he was left with the casting vote on the award given the investment from punters.

Most punters are under the impression their money will be riding on the opinion of a more qualified judge.

The decision to overlook Farah, one of the form players in the competition, cost punters dearly as he was one of the favourites.

Tigers coach Tim Sheens told us that Farah was clearly his team's best player. So too did Test selector Bob Fulton, who covered the game for 2GB. Our colleague Steve Mascord gave Farah the three points in the Dally M Medal award.

But Channel Nine sports boss Steve Crawley defended his commentary team when we spoke to him about the decision to overlook Farah.

"I'm 100 per cent behind the integrity of our judges and 100 per cent behind the decision to give the award to Chris Heighington,'' Crawley said. "Peter Sterling voted for Robbie Farah, and Ben Ikin went for Heighington.

"Phil Gould didn't vote because he left right onfull time to write his newspaper column. It was 1-all and Brad McNamara, our producer, had a vote and went for Heighington. I'm comfortable with (it).''

However, Crawley admits Channel Nine could do without the pressure of punters betting on man-of-the-match selections.

"We do three matches a weekend and it always comes down to opinion, '' he said. "I personally wish the TAB didn't bet on it because it's always a matter of conjecture.

"The same thing happened in Origin I and it didn't involve our commentators. Most people thought Steve Price was a standout man of the match. But it went to Jonathan Thurston. And that was the choice of the selectors.

"It's something that's always going to happen... because it's a matter of opinion.

Clear cut Farah was the best on the ground

Bird coughed a couple of balls as well, one inside the red zone as well from memory. Selectors just love him. I remember him winning a MoM in a test match a few years ago and thought the same thing

Where there is money, there will ALWAYS be evil and corruption. Thats not a league thing, it is a fact of life

I might call up the TAB and put a series of bets on David Stagg to win MOM tonight...I will bet this until they tell me they wont accept anymore....I am not confident he will win, in fact, i am just guessing, that is why i want to bet as much as i possibly can on this high risk option.......

And not one of the "experts" here would have picked Farah as MOM until they were told of his tackle count. Not one of you.

Farah had no impact out there,how many of them 64 tackles did he actually force a loose ball or smash someone back 10 metres giving his team momentum? did any of his tackles actually inspire his teammates like Luke Lewis/Greg Bird(albiet he did make some errors) did?,how many times was he the 2nd or 3rd man in when basically the tackle was already completed? he also offered very little in attack and hardly made any metres out of dummy half



Giving someone MOM because they made a lot of tackles

yeh ace, don't you remember that dallas johnson got MOM when he made 62 tackles in G2 2007. No wait, Cameron Smith got it then

And this is absolute proof that games are fixed

Farah made 64 tackles, his kicking game in the opposition half was outstanding.

He directed the team well, alot better than Pearce and Carney and had a hand in the blues first try with the run around.

Without him, they dont win.

Bird was solid, but he did drop the ball i believe 3 times stone cold, didnt have a hand in any of the blues of tries.

Farah was MOM slam dunk, he was even the captains MOM, even though Gallen and Bird are like Brothers.

Corruption 100%, there will be more to this story, just wait and see...

Paul Gallen said on the game plan last night that he didn't even notice Farah out there and he only got the players award when everyone realised how many tackles he made

Why didn't Gallen notice him out on the field? because he had no impact out there

Robbie Plodrah

Did u even see the question that was asked of him? They asked him in a game of origin if you realise what other people are doing, because its so fast. He said you dont, you just forcus on what you are doing and dont take notice on others....

Dont take it out of contect Ace....

Just like Chris Heighington.......
