I thought Brisbane were all over Perf in the 2nd dig, a lot of desperate defending around the box.
Sydney & WU looked to have the most dangerous attacks. I thought WU looked very geriatric after the half, a decent #9 might have got 'Nux a point.

Yeah tale of two halves for sure. Perth looked a class above in the first half but clearly tired while Roar went up a gear instead.

WP awarded an indirect free kick when a Western United player ran on the field without permission when it should have been a penalty kick.

Completely inexcusable and every official there needs to be suspended. The VAR in particular - it's literally their job to check and analyse potential penalty decisions, so they were supposed to catch that error.

know everybody says that refs don't know the laws, but there's a big, big difference between interpreting a situation poorly, and actually getting the text of the law wrong. The latter very rarely happens.
This time though, it did. And when refs get the text of the law wrong and make match changing errors, that's the sort of thing that can – and has – led to results being successfully appealed against. From everything through to grassroots CCF, up to televised games in bigger leagues than this.
