    It was Bryan Norrie in the bunker yesterday according to the caller on Grandstand

    Doesn't matter who it was it was still a strange decision anyway. They are all hopeless.

    I'm all for the Referees decision being final and accept that they get some decision wrong. That just life.

    However, the thing that gets me is that given the technology applied, and the evidence available some of the decisions are inconsistent at best. But when Archer comes out and says the decisions were correct, that just shows how out of touch the refereeing administration has become.

    I think the bet thing that we can do is setup review panel that publicly critics controversial decisions each Monday. This would take a lot of heat of the rubbish the NRL provide today and lets the fans get use to the fact that decisions will sometimes be wrong.

    Providing this vindication for fans when refs get it wrong is not necessarily a black mark on the ref, rather acknowledgement that human error is part of our game.

    Exactly , they are now conductors and game managers with the attacking team getting a full time life coach behind the line

    Exactly, try will be scored beyond reasonable doubt .

    8 point try consists of an act of foul play during or after the try. Extra kick in front

    Why would the ref's improve when the tool in charge defends all their mistakes. I am not saying he should throw them under the bus but admitting they made an error they may look to improve but patting then on the back for stuffing up a game is just wrong.

    They say you learn from your mistakes but if you keep making them and the person in charge says you are doing fine you won't learn anything.
