Roosters star James Tedesco has given away a blatant penalty to slow the Warriors play the ball in a crucial position, but was controversially spared a sin binning.
Warriors enforcer Addin Fonua-Blake had burst through the line, coming desperately close to scoring if it wasn’t for a legs tackle from the Tricolous fullback.
But the New Zealand prop got to his feet fast, with Tedesco hugging his leg stopping him from playing the ball.

In Fox League’s live coverage Steve Roach said “he is going, 10 in the bin here for Tedesco”.
The Warriors players all gestured towards the sideline, raising 10 fingers waiting for referee Ziggy Przeklasa-Adamski to make the call, but it never came.
While the penalty from Tedesco looked like a professional foul he escaped time on the sidelines, Fox League’s experts didn’t agree.
