Yeah Cam would have been in the refs ear, at every break, pointing out how they are holding down in the ruck etc.

Rog just ain’t that guy so we lose a tool that would provide some advantage.
Remember when the sharks had Moloney . Ennis .Gallen the ref must have thought three times before he blew his whistle .
As soon as I seen their lineup that year I put dollars on them.
Bet on brains.

NRL 360 tonight has totally ignored the Warriors NO TRY... when on the topic of last weekends Bunker Blunders... All they showed was the Canberra v Storm blunder.

Holbrook was a guest later in the show so the Cynic in we would suggest this was the reason why!

Anyway as a Warriors fan, you do feel we are left Way out in Wilderness and not worthy of mention or further discussion about such matters!
Suck Balls 360!

It was hilarious that they replayed the Canberra blunder about 8 times in a loop while they were talking.

3-4 - there's probably a dozen or more who would have.

But like I've said for 5 years, he's not a winger. He doesn't think like a winger.

He was a second row/centre who got thrown in the deep end because our coaching staff were too dumb to think beyond "replacement Manu"

He then worked hard to develop his high ball ability.

He then worked hard to improve his finishing.

But the rest of his wingers game is pretty damn ordinary and the things he's worked hard to do comes naturally to most stock standard wingers.

He was never going to try because it's not part of his wingers programming that doesn't go beyond hit up, catch high ball, finish short range try.

That's really it. Anything outside those narrow parameters isn't going to register.
Not disagreeing, the fact is he's a converted forward, but I've seen Ken smash through defenders to score and put a step on near the line, mostly playing for the Kiwis and Samoa. So I don't know if he just doesn't have it in him or if Kearney's coached it out of him with his safety-first plays at all times. A new coach might bring out his inner Manu near the line, can't ever see him burning anyone from a break though.

Hopefully him or one of his staff are on this forum and getting in his ear
i can bet he didnt spend all those millions to sit back and watch a rigged competition. He will be in someones face about the poor level of reffing. I guess we wouldnt hear about it until he decides that they arent listening or acting. For me i would have reached that point by now, but then ive never had the NRL whispering assurances in my ear each week. And maybe he just doesnt want to spend more money than he has had to lately, you know good after bad etc.

These reffing decisions are well beyond a joke now. Its to late to keep admitting mistakes the next day.

Rugby league: Warriors coach Todd Payten says he's embarrassed for the sport; hits out at NRL refereeing
1594766261567.png



Warriors interim coach Todd Payten says he is embarrassed for league after being officially told four decisions were wrong in his side's loss to the Gold Coast Titans.

Payten also told Newstalk ZB's D'Arcy Waldegrave that he gave NRL referees boss Bernard Sutton a blast over the mistakes.

The Warriors went down 12–16 after a fast start, but crucial calls including a no-try decision made by the bunker against Jack Hetherington ended up costing the New Zealand side.

There was an uproar over the interference call which rubbed out that try.

"I've had correspondence with the referees' boss and four of those decisions through the course of the game were wrong which had a huge bearing on the result," he said.

"It infuriates me, embarrasses me as a coach that we are still having this happen in our game.

"I've tried not to spend too much energy on it during the week, but addressed it with the referees' boss who got a piece of my mind.

"At the moment we're just moving forward … as hard as it is to swallow we've just go to get on with it."

The Hetherington try would have given the Warriors, with the goal, an 18–6 lead.

"I'm really confident we would have gone on with that – the effect on them and us in terms of energy and mindset," Payten said.


Payten detailed two of the other incorrect calls as an escort penalty against centre Peta Hiku, and the failure to penalise a Gold Coast marker who had tackled dummy half Wayde Egan in front of the posts.

"Big calls no doubt," said Payten, who could do with more luck as he bids to become the club's next head coach.

Keep bringing it up in the media. The only thing that will fix the issue is to embarrass the NRL into action.

4 errors - some of them game turning. And that will only be the definitive ones they had to own up to...

The edge of insanity
Good on Payten for giving Sutton a blast but it won't stop the obvious corruption within the referring circles. Is it just an Aus - NZ bias? Personally i doubt it.
That bunker was brought in to engineer results imo & as long as it stays there will never be a fair playing field. Sad for the Clubs that often get the shit decisions but disgraceful that those refs still keep their jobs. Bastards

Any talk of anyone being stood down, IMO that should be both of them gone. Also the sideline refs should be looked at for their involvement or lack of.

They already admitted they can't stand down anyone from the bunker as only 3 people are trained to use it :| Should have at least stood down Butler though.
wow, seriously thats the worst excuse i have ever heard. I go back to my comment on the commentators watching less footage with fewer angles, they get it right more than 95% right on their limited viewing (i want to say 99.9 or higher, but i dont have any stats to back that just my feeling from watching). How hard can it be for a person in the bunker to ask a tech to jog a replay dial back and forwards. I get its live and speed is a factor, but while looking for reasons to overturn how often do we sit there for minutes while they go back and forwards back and forwards. When the commentators called it on the 1st or second watching.

Anyone else see the irony of Sutton saying the refs got it wrong considering how many times he did when he was reffing our games.
