I swear the refs have been told to stop the penalties and 6 again the past month so it’s not as obvious when they don’t call them in origin.
The amount of **** around the ruck the past month that’s been ignored is pathetic
I was watching something on the NBA and it had an ex-ref saying how they were briefed each week on what to look out for. Say a player was scoring a bunch, etc, they would be shown footage of what to police, he’d tell his mate that they were basically going to shut a player out of the game, his friend would place a bet, then the ref would go about his business during the game and score a bag at the end of it.

Obviously completely different sport, but if it’s happening in a game with as much money invested in it as the NBA, it’s happening for sure in our **** house, poorly run sport.

They should throw all that crap out and just ref what's in front of them.

It's called 'eyes up reffing'

So does Nick Politis look at this game like an EOFY sale?

You get a contract, you get a contract... look at how good our juniors are!

Happy for PNG.

Fiji kept trying to milk penalties. Expected in the NRL where morals take a back seat but this game should be about fairness and pride.
