It was a terrible performance from the referee’s tonight. Souths were allowed to lay in the ruck a lot longer than we were and they were able to milk penalties (burgess & inglis both milked one each) where as when the same thing happened for us we got nothing.
That got the bunnies back into the game without a doubt. I’m not going to argue who the better team was etc but the lack of consistent, impartial adjudication impacted on the quality of the contest.
I will cop bad decisions if they are consistent but tonight it was either an inconsistent interpretation of the ruck or pure biase.
