    NRL boss Todd Greenberg says he can’t “sugar-coat” the recent spate of bunker blunders and that his team of video officials simply need to be better.

    The Warriors were denied a try against Newcastle on Saturday when the bunker overturned an on-field ruling, despite replays clearly showing winger Ken Maumalo planting the ball down.

    That came less than a week after NRL head of elite football Graham Annesley described the officiating in round 15 as “sloppy”.

    “There have been some errors our match officials have made - I can’t sugar-coat it,” Greenberg said on Monday.

    "We don’t want to see errors but in saying that we are dealing with human beings so errors will happen from time to time.

    “But one error is too many.”

    Greenberg said there was nothing wrong with the centralised officiating system and described the technology as world’s best practice.

    But the human element of the system means it could never be fool-proof, he said.

    “This is about when you put people in charge of making decisions, really, really difficult ones, occasionally they will get some wrong,” he said.

    “It’s no different to a player who doesn’t want to drop a ball or miss a tackle but one mistake is one too many.”

    Greenberg said hard work and training was all that could be done to improve the system and didn’t feel constant criticism was helpful.

    “I know the coaching staff and match officials are doing a enormous amount of work to improve their performance and they will be doing that again this week but clearly they need to be better,” he said.

    "We have to hold them to account and help them get better.

    “Bashing them week in and week out probably isn’t going to help their performance.”

  • Graham Ainesly Weekly Powerpoint-Pointing session is live…



  • What a bunch of losers!



  • Graham Lack of Honesty Cam Swiff erotic rub down sessions, more than powerpoints

    at least I think anyway…



  • One of the big issues on bunker shots is, people think they’re supposed to cut across the ball. When you do that, you lose the sliding action of the club. Why? Because that action comes from the face being open, and it’s hard to hold the face open when it’s cutting to the left. Swing out to your target, like on a normal pitch shot.



  • So why have it then, Todd? Referee errors are unavoidable too yet your lot consistently throws them under the bus.



  • Annesly admited that the 3 ref calls on , the 2 charge downs and the one where manu where in touch, were incorrect

    he has not spoken to madge yet

    Cool…do we get a ribbon



  • Starting to think the refs should have to carry a licence. To maintain it they need yearly ophthalmology exams and complete brain explosions result in demerit points that are redeemable every 3 years with good behaviour.

    Really Todd???

    Video ref’s get many many opportunities.
    Players don’t get a 2nd crack when they miss a tackle or drop the pill 😒
    Bloody peanut



  • If the system was fool-proof, most the people working for the NRL would be unable to access the bunker.

    It is funny that these errors always seem to go against the lesser fancied sides. I don’t often hear of Annesley fronting up and apologising for mistakes that cost the Roosters, Broncos, Melbourne and Souths a game, or multiply dud decisions in a game that all seemed to go against those sides.

    No worries Toddles …we can bash you mercilessly if you like

    And the line up waiting for their turn would reach beyond where the eye could see …

    Been saying this forever. Smith throws more forward passes than (insert prominent NFL quarterback)



  • Can anyone tell me why that parasite Greenberg was snuggled next the Smith today. He’s supposed to be an unbiased, neutral CEO. YOYRE OUT OF YOUR DEPTH TODD.

    Wonder if he’ll be at a presser with Benji…
