    And that's why if there's any doubt at all the default should be play on. If in doubt, don't blow the whistle, even if something obviously went wrong but the ref can't tell what, or who infringed first. Just play on FFS. There would be far fewer howlers.

    I absolutely agree.
    People can understand a ref missing something, and will get over it.
    When they blow the whistle for something that hasn't even happened, that's just not acceptable.

    There is probably 6 refs at the moment worth feeding.. For all the attention he gets Perenara actually is a good ref compared to Suttons & Badgers..

    Where was our Captain? Why did he not approach the ref and make a complaint? Refs only seem to listen to certain players.

    Wasn't a stop in play, but that isn't applied to the big teams regardless of captain.

    That is the difference. Sam Burgess was complaining to the ref just before when we were on their line and saying that they weren't getting anything their way. Then boom. Peni "knocks on" after he starts complaining and every call goes Souths way from then on. Just shows you need to complain at the right time.

    I don't think Gutherson is the greatest choice for captain. Unfortunately we don't seem to have anyone else that would make a great captain.

    I reckon Gutho would be a good 'lead by example' captain, but probably not a good 'I'm going to make the refs do what I want with my superior mind powers' captain.

    Yep. Our last few captains (bar Scott and very briefly Foran) have been too nice and very easily brushed off by the refs.

    Our Coach is tolerant of the Refs. He probably requires his players to be the same. Gutho and Timmy might really be mad MFs subdued by BA?

    Sadly our extended poor periods in matches can generally be targeted to one specific error. Points to us dropping our heads. Seems to happen every game.

    Not sure that's the case
    Smiths standing in the game the refs are probably in awe of the bloke, so aside form asking him for an autograph they listen to him more so than others. If you listen to him speaking he is quite respectfull.
    Lockyer had the same presence, as well as JT.

    Until we get Bill Harrigan type referees, who took no nonsense from anyone, it will be more of the same

    100% with smith and also lockyer .... no one comes close to smith - he is unique in that and his control and composure probably is the reason he will be an immortal

    But JT has been a mad muthaf**ker with refs for alot of his career but allowed to get away with it .... maybe being a gun player earns that

    With 'leadership groups' being in vogue, clubs should have a number of guys who lead by example. Gutho being one of them. Someone from that group (the captain) needs to be able to 'work' the refs. Gutho is not him.

    What do people think of Terepo? I been raving about the guy. Be honest are you glad he has signed up? He is just getting his groove and showing how well he can play with consistant footy. Next season he will reach peak.

    Terepo has definitely exceeded my expectations, but they were quite low to begin with. With Junior coming into the pack he’ll be fighting for that last bench spot with Evans, Lane, Kaufusi, possibly Musgrave etc.

    Terepo will be our best prop in the 2019.
