    <p>Manly coach Des Hasler has joined the chorus of criticism against referees after a blatant forward pass left the Sea Eagles rooted to the foot of the NRL ladder.</p>
    <p>The Sea Eagles joined Canterbury, South Sydney and Cronulla without a win after two games in a 24-20 loss to Parramatta at Parramatta Stadium on Sunday, but only after referees Shayne Hayne and Brett Suttor failed to pull up a pass that looked almost five metres forward.</p>

    In Hasler's post match media conference he stated that Hodko and Foran will play as our halves in the next few weeks.

    Of concern to me this morning was the article I read from Zorba absolutely bagging Souths as a footy side, am sure they will store that away for the right time

    And Zorba also has one that high as well - except it is a menu.

    I think the last few years there has been plenty of banter there, Mayer got into it as well from memory, it is obviously an orchestrated marketing strategy to generate more interest by trying to revive the old rivalry.

    I agree with Des but he won't win any battles complaining every week about it. Last week he described the Tiger tries as "tinny" before he corrected himself for going too far. Yes Des - you did. This week though I agree with him. Shocking performance. Still Des needs to go back to the conditioners with some of the famous Eagle KPIs and find out why we can only hold them for 65 minutes.

    How the hell are they expected to hold them out when they get cruelled by bullsh-it penalty after bullsh-it penalty at that same point in the game?  Of course possession is going to swing the other way.

    Penalising Perry for taking 10 minutes to get his fat arse off the tackled player is not a bull**** penalty.

    He should slam his players for giving away 20 point leads in the space of 2 weeks & stupid penalties.

    CHRIS BARRETT smh.com.au

    THE referees' room at Parramatta Stadium is next to the visiting team's dressing room on the western side of the ground. As Des Hasler walked past to board the Manly team bus yesterday afternoon it must have taken all of his powers of resistance not to beat the door down.

    He was certainly huffing and puffing at the game's officials after the Sea Eagles' stunning four-point defeat. ''We've got serious issues with this game,'' Hasler muttered to NRL official John Brady as he entered the post-match press conference.

    Irking the Manly coach most notably, having watched his side surrender a 20-point lead, were what he believes were forward passes by Jarryd Hayne and then Kris Keating before the Eels' penultimate try in the 73rd minute. Hasler also took aim at referees Shayne Hayne and Brett Suttor for not awarding a penalty to the Sea Eagles against Hayne just before he orchestrated the match-winning try. Hasler believes the Eels fullback played the man, not the ball, in contesting a bomb against Manly winger Ben Farrar.

    Battling rage, Hasler was in something of a giving mood as he addressed the passes. ''I'll personally pay for those two touchies to visit OPSM and get a check-up because I didn't know we'd reverted to gridiron,'' he said. ''Not once but twice and I thought it was a pretty critical part of the game.''

    Hasler described the decision not to award a penalty for Hayne's mid-air contact with Farrar and instead rule a knock-on against the winger as ''another turning point''. ''I haven't looked at the replay but I thought Farrar might have been taken out by the play before he caught the ball by Hayne,'' Hasler said. ''In my mind that's a turnover for the forward passes and a penalty going the other way.''

    Earlier, the Sea Eagles were on the right end of the referees' decisions, leading 4-1 in the penalty count after 30 minutes. The tide turned in the second half, as did the match.

    ''You go from 4-1 in the penalties for - and you play good, smart disciplined football - to I think five-zip,'' Hasler said, though the Eels were still penalised three more times than Manly in a 9-6 final count.

    ''How do you go from a 4-1 for to a five-zip against? Maybe we should just leave [referees' coach] Robert Finch alone; it seems everyone is getting into him. It doesn't help.''

    Hasler is not the first coach to have a crack at refereeing decisions this season. Asked if there was an issue with referees, he said: ''I'm a coach. That's for the leadership group. That's for David Gallop to have a look at.''

    Hasler's remarks have earned the attention of the NRL itself, although he is unlikely to face a $10,000 fine as Bulldogs coach Kevin Moore could for suggesting his side could not ''get a fair crack of the whip'' in their defeat to the Dragons on Friday night.

    NRL chief operating officer Graham Annesley said he would examine the comments in detail today.

    Hasler's Parramatta counterpart, Daniel Anderson, had some sympathy. Told that Hasler was unhappy with some decisions, Anderson simply said: ''Agree.''

    ''The first 40 minutes I thought we got some really rough plays,'' he said. ''I just thought there was re-gripping and double efforts and all sorts of little things in the first half that went against us and then in the second half they went for us. I thought the ledger was pretty square by the end of it.''

    Stuart Honeysett From: The Australian

    The Manly coach is facing a fine of $10,000 from the NRL after offering to book appointments for touch judges Jeff Younis and Gavin Reynolds with eye specialists OPSM.

    Hasler's fury didn't end there after he said to NRL media director John Brady, as he was leaving the press conference: "What are you shaking your head at?"

    Hasler was seething that two forward passes from Hayne and Kris Keating were missed in the lead-up to the Reddy try in the 73rd minute that saw the Eels close the gap to 20-18.

    He was also livid over not receiving a penalty for another incident two minutes later, after claiming Hayne tackled winger Ben Farrar in the air when both players contested a mid-field bomb. That incident proved to be equally as costly for Manly, with Hayne setting up the match-winner in the 77th minute after firing a long cut-out pass for Eric Grothe to score in the corner.

    "I'll personally pay for those two touchies to visit OPSM and get a check-up because I didn't know we'd reverted to gridiron," Hasler said. "Not once, but twice, and I thought it was a pretty critical part of the game.

    "I also thought another turning point was, I thought Farrar might have been taken out of the play (by Hayne) before he caught the ball.

    "So in my eyes, that's a turn-over for forward passes and a penalty going the other way.

    "And to go from 4-1 in the penalties for, and you play good smart disciplined football, to five-zip . . . how do you go from a 4-1 for to a five-zip against?"

    The NRL will review an audio transcript of the press conference today but has the power to fine individuals if they question the integrity or make disparaging remarks about match officials.

    It is understood Brady has already informed NRL chief operating officer Graham Annesley of his run-in with Hasler but does not wish to proceed with a complaint. "Tomorrow we'll get the audio and look at the context they were said in and then we'll make a decision," Annesley said.

    Given the passes were dubious, Hasler was entitled to be livid but that didn't change the fact his team had surrendered another match-winning lead.

    The 2008 premiers led Wests Tigers 20-4 in the opening round before being run down and were up 20-0 yesterday before the Eels scored four unanswered tries in the final 30 minutes.

    It was disappointing, given Manly seemed to be coping well for most of the match with the loss of fullback Brett Stewart to a long-term knee injury, and forward George Rose to suspension.

    FURIOUS Manly coach Des Hasler launched an extraordinary tirade at the two touch judges involved in Parramatta's sensational 24-20 win yesterday.

    Hasler was filthy at an Eels try in which there appeared to be two forward passes before Parramatta centre Joel Reddy crossed in the 74th minute. The coach could not hide his frustration at his side throwing away a 20-0 lead to lose in the final minutes.

    Hasler approached NRL official John Brady before the press conference and said: "I told you John, there are serious issues with this game."

    After a lively media conference, Hasler walked past Brady again and said: "I don't know why you are shaking your head."

    Most in the game agree the quality of refereeing in the opening two rounds has been substandard.

    "

    "I'm a coach - it's something for (NRL CEO) David Gallop to look at. I can't make it any clearer."

    NRL chief operating officer Graham Annesley will listen to audio of the press conference before deciding whether Hasler will be fined.

    "It's two games into the season and it feels like 12," Hasler said.

    "It was very similar to last week (against Wests Tigers). Some crucial decisions went against us today.

    "We have to win next week (against Newcastle in Gosford). We have to get our footy heads back on and we will do that.

    "It is a massive game for us."

    When me and my brothers were little Dad used to sit on the hill and yell, "Go to OPSM." when a dodgy penalty was blown. I got a good laugh out of hearing Des's OPSM line. Him and Tommy are on the same page.

    If match referees dish out poor performances & noone shines a light on it then nothing will change.

    Good on you Des. Get into em.
