    he was not the reason we lost, he sounded like he made stupid calls for both sides.

    the Tigers played slightly better by the sound of it, we gifted them a couple of trys and paid the price.

    probably be 2 on the trot for us with the Broncos up there with our City/Country reps backing up.

    I was there at Leichardt and it was the worst refereeing performance i have ever seen.

    totally agree.

    He did influence the game... not sure if it was in our favour or not.. but would have been a different game if he wasnt the referee.

    Reffing was shocking. Bad calls for both teams but he certainly affected the momentum of Manly when we were trying to come back.

    I also got to Leichhardt today & Smith was truly abysmal. All I can say is the Tiges won today without much of a shake from the ref. Some of the decisions were cringeworthy even watching with one maroon eye & one white. Back to PL for Russell.

    I don't normally complain about bad ref decisions as typically they even themselves out over the season. But Smith's performance today was nothing less than abysmal.

    If the NRL spin doctors come out tomorrow and say that they reviewed his performance and find that all his decisions were correct I will throw up.

    Russell Smith is the worst referee I've ever seen. I couldn't believe my eyes out there. But that penalty late in the game against us for an illegal play the ball took the cake. The Tigers guy had 2 hands on his back and was pushing him down.

    Choc Watmough being penalised after his long break when they wasn't a hand on him was also a vital call. We had momentum and the two penalties in possession were killers.

    Apparently Mattai scored from a Manly knock on?

    Only listened to it on the radio though.

    mattai went into a tackle and a tigers player went to pass it, Mattai knocked the ball forward and seemed to pl;ay at it, Dunley picked up the ball, at best accidently offside, scrum tigers feed, but ran 30 meters, manly scored off the back of that.
