Nothing will be done.
I don't know why the referees are interested in the points spread, but nothing will be done.
Could not believe it when I heard it
There is a lot wrong with league at the moment.
It is going to be a very very long off season
would not be surprised
And the most suspicious thing about it is that around a minute or two later the Tits looked like they were going to score when......Hayne's pass was called forward.
That game was most definitely rigged.
The refs have no need to ever reference the score? What does it matter to them?
And the way he says it implies urgency.
That is very very odd. And suprise suprise, a forward pass called on a questionable ball and then a Broncos try....
Imagine the fallout.....
To me - he is telling badge that the game was not over and not to be lax for the last couple of mins.
Had the Robert's kick been penalised, the Broncos don't score. Ref knew they were in great field position.
Why not say that?
"5 to go mate. Keep it up"
What's 12 points with 5mins to go got to do with anything?
It's a moot point, even though they probably do drop in intensity in regards to policing the rules towards the end, they should ref the game the same from start to finish without need of changing intensity depending on how many minutes left.
Funny how none of the other three finals matches were so appallingly refereed.
I don't know who reffed the panthers/dogs game (the way it should be), whoever they were should get the GF gig.
Badger and Sutton should be kept far away.
Because "5 mins to go" if the score was 50-0 wouldn't have the same impact. Using the score emphasises that the game was potentially still in the balance and not to slack off.
I think you see refs be more lenient in the last 5-10mins when the game is a foregone conclusion.
Agree - but just human nature to want to lesson the intensity when something appears to be done and dusted.
Wouldn't have the same impact?
Maybe 5mins to go and slap him in the face?
Or 5mins to go - we've gotta get these blokes to 13+.
Saying that 5mins to go isn't sufficient to tell the other ref there is 5mins to go is a strange interpretation of the situation. To me - "hey Badge, there's 5mins mate - stay on it mate" is just fine.
Referencing a score line that should have absolutely no influence on what they do is odd. A referee should have no need to know any score at any time.
We'll have to agree to disagree
and whoever was in charge of the bunker had a huge input on the final score !!!
