The NRL has announced an initiative to provide greater transparency and accountability in relation to contentious refereeing decisions arising from each round of the Telstra Premiership.

Referees Coach Robert Finch has today released the first report which summarises the controversial decisions made in Round 19 after they have been reviewed and analysed (document attached).

The move follows a similar process undertaken by the Match Review Committee which supplies a weekly summary of incidents reviewed after each round of the Telstra Premiership.

NRL Chief Operating Officer Graham Annesley said the initiative will be trialed for the remainder of the 2006 season.

“Contentious refereeing decisions often create emotional debate at the time but rarely is there any official announcement clarifying whether the officials were right or wrong,” Mr Annesley said.

“This is another important step in demonstrating transparency and accountability across all parts of our game and where a referee does make a mistake we will continue our policy of acknowledging the error.”

“Conversely, where the officials have made the correct call the NRL has a responsibility to back them up publicly”.
