Referees Matt Cecchin and Henry Perenara stood down following seven tackle blunder

THE NRL's head of football Todd Greenberg says Matt Cecchin and Henry Perenara almost certainly won't referee for the remainder of the finals series following Saturday's seventh tackle howler.

Cecchin and Perenara have not been selected for this weekend's two finals games between the Sharks and Manly on Friday and Melbourne and Newcastle 24 hours later.

The pair were castigated by furious North Queensland players and officials following the Cowboys' 20-18 loss to Cronulla - who scored a decisive try on seventh tackle through Beau Ryan.

Video referees from the game, Matt Rodwell and Jason Robinson, have also been given the weekend off and Greenberg said steps have been taken to ensure similar blunders don't occur again.

The review, conducted by referees' boss Daniel Anderson and Greenberg concluded that on-field referees must always vocalise each tackle so players and the match officials squad are aware of the count at all times.

Additional responsibilities have also been given to the head video referee in relation to the tackle count.

"The referees accept there are consequences for actions and that's likely to cost them significantly in the finals series ahead when Daniel confirms his appointments," Greenberg said.

"We do need to keep a sense of perspective. At our end we need to ensure that everything can be done to prevent human error.

"We also need to accept that in a game as intense and as fast paced as rugby league that you will never eradicate all mistakes either on the part of the players or the officials.

Greenberg has also reviewed the failure of the stadium clock at Allianz Stadium during the Cowboys-Sharks game and also the security breaches after the game.

Confusion reigned when the scoreboard showed there were 41 seconds remaining as the Cowboys played out their final set after referees called time on when the scrum was set.

The Cowboys' anger at losing the game was compounded when they were confronted by jeering Sharks fans as they walked back to the SCG change rooms.

With the main sheds at the stadium unavailable due to the NRL staging a double header between Sydney Roosters and Manly - the players had to walk to the neighbouring ground with no security to escort them.

"Arrangements had been in place with the stadium to prevent this and we are bitterly disappointed that they did not proceed as planned," Greenberg said.

"The security and safety of the players is of paramount importance and we have expressed our dissatisfaction with stadium officials to ensure what happened on Saturday is not repeated.

"It's important to note the clock on the scoreboard is a display clock and the official match clock with the time-keeper operated without error.

"We understand the concerns of the players and fans at the time given the excitement in the final moments of the game but the match was played to the correct time."

As a result of the confusion Greenberg has also ordered a complete review of all current procedures match officials utilise and of the time-keeping facilities at stadiums.

"In an ideal world the broadcasters, stadium and the time-keeper would all be working off the one feed and that's certainly something we'd like to pursue," he said.

Still doesn't answer the question of why the score could not have been corrected when the tackle count error was discovered. Were they scared of a riot from the Sharkie fans?

Wonder what would have happened if the sitation had been reversed with the Cowboys scoring off a bum call. Would it have been dealt with in the same way? .
I'd like to think so but ..........

Anyway we move on secure in the knowledge that 2014 will be all about fair play and professionalism :rolleyes:

The Warriors have slipped out of the top 8 (They sit 9th). I hope they beat the Roosters to get their season back on track. Also hope that Perenara refs the rest of their games this year.

Best and fairest ref, Henry. It's the least they could do after all our sacrifices, he can be our 18th man too, he'll add some speed to the backline when Latrell knocks out Fusitua in the Rabbits game. #LetsGoneHenry #OurRef

Kiwi-born NRL ref Henry Perenara retires with a heart condition​

A heart condition has prompted Auckland-born NRL referee Henry Perenara to retire at the age of 40.

Perenara, who played one test for the Kiwis in 2001, has been an NRL referee since 2011, after playing 72 first grade matches in the NRL for five clubs.

He is a cousin of All Blacks T J Perenara and Sonny Bill Williams.

Perenara has been diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia, an abnormally fast heartbeat that causes shortness of breath, dizziness sweating or fainting, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Henry Perenara has had to retire, for health reasons.

Henry Perenara has had to retire, for health reasons.

He almost collapsed at training a week ago, Perenara told the newspaper. At times his heart raced to about 230 beats per minute.

A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute, but a fit athlete might be closer to 40 beats per minute.

“I nearly blacked out,” he said. “I don’t remember much of it, but that’s when I had to make the decision to give it away. You certainly don’t want to risk it happening in a game.”

He said he had battled the disease for almost 15 years. At times it struck during games.

“I just kept pushing through it. It’s not life-threatening, but it’s not good either. It feels like your heart is beating out of your chest. It’s happened in games, but I’ve just tried to mask it.”

A cardiologist diagnosed him in February and put him on medication, which made him lethargic. He quit after two months.

In 2020, Perenara was the first NRL referee to send off a player for an alleged bite, when he red-carded Kevin Proctor when the Cronulla Sharks played against the Gold Coast Titans.

He made his international refereeing debut in 2011 when New Zealand played the Cook Islands in a one-off test match in Rarotonga.

He had made his NRL first grade debut as a referee in the Roosters-Raiders match earlier that year.

He will still work in the bunker and help coach junior refs.


Best of luck to the guy. We may not have been on the favourable side of him much as a referee, but has certainly given his life to the game he loves, so have to respect that.

Really unfortunate. Just when he was starting to come good for us too!

He's had a good innings as a player and ref. Probably a bunker role for him next?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but Henry Perenara is having to retire due to an abnormally fast heart beat. As much grief as we give him, no one wants to see this. Six kids as well.
Does that mean his seeing eye dog retires too! 🤣

I hope all the Perenara bashers out there have noticed now that he has retired from actual reffing, and he is in the bunker...
that he is the pinnacle of the video bunker revue guy... he is spot on, precise and quick with his analyse and decisions...
Far better than all the rest of the clowns, especially Cheat Chitty!

Henry was the worst Ref I have seen.

He is definitely the best Bunker analyst I have ever seen. Just shows you when some guys do not have time plressure to make on the spot decisions they thrive.

Carrigan suspended for four matches for Hastings hip-drop​

By Christian Nicolussi​

Broncos representative prop Pat Carrigan was on Tuesday night suspended for four matches for an ugly hip-drop tackle that broke the leg of Wests Tigers’ livewire Jackson Hastings and ended his season.

Carrigan pleaded guilty to the charge and it was left to the two-man panel of Henry Perenara and Dallas Johnson, as well as judiciary chair Geoff Bellew – who dialled into the hearing via Zoom from overseas – to determine the penalty.

Adam Jackson is joined by Wally Lewis and Darren Lockyer to recap the weekend of Rugby League including the Pat Carrigan hip-drop, Capewell playing possum, and the Cowboys bounce back win.

The NRL proposed a five- to six-week ban based on the old judicial code, while Carrigan’s lawyer Nick Ghabar argued two matches would be sufficient.

They settled on the month, largely based on the injury suffered by Hastings, but also the fact two Broncos helped push the utility into an awkward position in the tackle.

“I certainly didn’t have any intent or malice with what happened, but I am obviously aware Jackson will miss a bit of footy; I just wish him all the best with his recovery,” Carrigan said afterwards.

Ghabar made the comparison to Josh McGuire’s hip-drop tackle on Josh Addo-Carr in round 10 last season, which led to a five-match ban.

McGuire’s effort on that occasion was labelled much worse by Ghabar, and “it was reckless and probably intentional, calculated conduct ... it is fortuitous if not miraculous [Addo-Carr] wasn’t injured in the tackle”.

Carrigan had also pleaded guilty, said Ghabar, and he could not have anticipated his two Broncos teammates involved in the tackle contributing to Hastings landing in the ugly position he did.

The 24-year-old Carrigan who was just last month crowned the Wally Lewis Medal winner as State of Origin’s best player will return in the final round against St George Illawarra.

NRL counsel Patrick Knowles said a five- to six-match ban was sufficient based on what the penalty used to be for grade-three dangerous contact charges under the old code.

He said Carrigan carried out a hip-drop tackle, and what he should have done was “let his grip on the waist and hips slide” down Hastings. Instead, Knowles said Carrigan stuck his leg out and placed Hastings into an unnatural position.

Knowles said the injury to Hastings could also not be ignored, with medical reports suggesting Hastings will be sidelined for up to five months with a fractured fibula and busted ankle. Hastings will undergo surgery on Wednesday.

Knowles did not expect the panel to adopt an “eye-for-eye approach”, but stressed Hastings’ injury was so serious it was one that could “potentially impact on the career of player Hastings”.

Knowles added the game needed to send a strong message such hip-drop tackles would not be tolerated.

Tigers players had earlier on Tuesday told the Herald how brutal it was to see Hastings in such pain in the middle of Suncorp Stadium.

“I was looking the other way, but when I saw the tackle on the replay, I saw it was a hip drop – as soon as ‘Jacko’ started screaming out, I knew it was bad,” fullback Daine Laurie said.
“The same thing happened to me when I broke my ankle at Suncorp last year.

“Jacko was shattered after the game. We’ll miss his versatility, his spark and mad chat. We do need to get the hip drop out of the game.”

Tigers playmaker Jock Madden added: “It wasn’t a good tackle at all, the game is trying to get rid of tackles like that.

“People with the hip-drop, they’re sitting down on the [ball-carrier]. We never practice them. Nobody means to do them, but if they happen by accident, [assistant coach] Nathan Cayless rips into us.”
