Most likely an Aussie ref. The Aussies would say a kiwi wouldn't be up to it and be biased.So does this mean we get a Kiwi ref for the next game? Or do the Aussies need every advantage they can get?
Even when international rules said neutral referees the Aussies insisted on Aussie refs. I think last time the neutral refs was only used for England vs New Zealand.
I was surprised there wasn't more charging at the refs disputing every decision; the current only after scoring etc is an NRL rule. Part way though the first half I was expecting the players to return to type; a couple of times we could of used Mannering to slow things down with a quiet word to the referee. Him doing it probably would have started the Aussies though. I wouldn't have been surprised if Hayne forgot about that and shooed them away like it was the NRL.
