    The guy on the hill side in the second half did nothing.

    Most plays the panthers were leaving early yet he didn't make a single call and there were a few forward passes that he was perfectly in line with again nothing.

    Are they volunteers on work experience or do they get paid, surely if its the latter that is a form of fraud?

      Most are the same. Apart from marking where a kick has landed :cool:

      The pocket Ref last night let Sowie's knock on go - he was right there and it was a simple call as we had just kicked out from goal:mad:

        They're only there to run decoy for the ref at half and fulltime so the bottlethrowers don't have a solitary target.

          We didn't play at all well in the second half but we got no help whatsoever from the pink idiots (green idiots?) :(

          there was a lot of deja moo (the feeling I had seen this bullsh!t before) last night in the second half.

          Had a small lead, refs start blowing little things, panfers get in front, whistle then gets put in the pocket.

          We completed 13/15 in the second half so you cannot blame the boys for handing of posetion cheaply yet we had only 40%. There is a disconnect somewhere

          He linesmen are just cheerleaders for the refs right? That's why they have flags.

          It was an inept performance from all the officials last night. Disgraceful really.

            Touchies are there to take some of the heat from the refs by sharing around the decision to send tries upstairs for video referral.

            Funny, isn't it, the more officials the NRL employs the more controversy they cause.
