    Harrigan admitted on the Game Show there were bad stuff ups. But he said that had all been sorted out, and now all the referees are on the same page with the obstruction rule.

    Can someone please refer me to the page?

    Rex, if you believe Harrigan you would believe in the tooth fairy.
    Just because he says something, does not make it so.
    When does he get sacked, i am sure bobby still has him lined up if that is not forthcoming.

    There was another crap ruling tonight! Jamie and the rest of the team blew up about it but ref said he called play on. Even Gus agreed with Manly!

    We just need to go back to the old shepherd rule.

    No real progress will be made until Bill is dumped.

    Until then we're left with the situation of two referees, two linesmen, one video ref, and none of them have any idea of what is now an obstruction under Bill's regime.

    I sat next to Bill at a Rugby Dinner tonight. He admitted he was copping a hard time. He left at one point and came back saying that there had been a wrong call on an obstruction call tonight but that it hadn't been a try.

    Had some interesting things to say, one of them that the refs had spent a lot of time discussing and trying to clarify the rule.

    Found out he was a bunny supporter as a kid, though had grown up in the South West. Not a bad bloke one-on-one and was entertaining as an after-dinner speaker.

    In the post match interview tooves said "And it's good the obstruction rule has been cleared up!"

    Possibly also hinting that some journo coulda asked that question.

    Obviously that article although with today's date, was written prior to last night's game as there was no mention of the bungle that Archer made.

    Harrigan is kidding, this puts to bed any facade of impartiality IMO :mad:
