Re: Referees....

We have some serious issues in our game and perhaps the main ones is refereeing consistency. There is no consistency in the way the grey areas are officiated.

The biggest for me is the ruck. It's an absolute turn-off.

Last night we had one ref calling "Milking!" against the Panthers then the other ref comes running in and penalises us???

The leeway tacklers are allowed varies greatly from one set to the next, let alone one game to another.

It's become ridiculous.

What a shocking game to watch it was.

Whatever the refs are trying to achieve - its not working.
Pretty simple to see what the refs are trying to achieve

What are the coaches and players trying to achieve ??
Just make the refs the 17th team in the NRL.

You could find a penalty in nearly every tackle if you want.

I think they have lost the plot.

How does one team give up an 8-0 penalty count and then all of a sudden its 11-11 at the end of the game?

Its a joke? They even it up because thats how they are conditioned.

Rule changes might save the product. However it going down hill.
Its very obvious some teams are giving away penalties and backing their defence to do the job when they face attacks that rely on being on a consistent roll

We are one of those sides on both sides , you slow our attack down and make it stop start we struggle to deal with it

We give away penalties close to our line and back our defence

Cleary and many other clubs have seen the benefits , it keeps us in games most weeks

So many penalties because too many referees.
Make it one and give the touchies more input. They are doing nothing anymore.
Bunker made them nothing but ball boys.

Last night was right up with some of those Saturday arvo games the ABC showed on a when they got the bottom game of the weekend. It was painful from start to finish, and Cummins and his mate were to blame.

He did not cost us win, last night showed how far we are behind a real top four team, but he did spoil the enjoyment. People expert more yuan what we saw last night
