No joy for Dragons' points claim

1:13 pm on 17 April 2014

St George Illawarra's demand for two NRL competition points has been flatly refused by league's head of football Todd Greenberg.

The Dragons are still seething following the awarding of the Melbourne Storm's try after the fulltime siren sealed a dramatic come-from-behind victory 28-24 on Monday at AAMI Park.

The NRL's referees boss Tony Archer subsequently admitted the on-field officials made an error in not blowing fulltime after a play-the-ball in the build-up to the try occurred six-tenths of a second after the siren was sounded.

The Dragons chief executive Peter Doust then called for both sides to be awarded two points from the game and hinted at legal action.

But Greenberg rejected the request, saying mistakes were simply part of the game.
