And I agree on Shane Hayne skinny... I'm not into bagging refs, but it seemed like he started off making the correct calls... but he had the pressure of England complaining about NRL refs, and probably had England in his ear complaining about bias... so some of the "50/50" calls he gave against NZ were actually just outright wrong.
Vatuvei being taken out in the corner was a shocker, but I wasn't surprised to see it let go after Issac Luke's dive last week. Ultimately I think England is gonna have a massive whinge about Shane Hayne and NRL refs, but he was calling it their way from about the 30min mark onwards.
Also, Hohaia's little brain explosion was just stupid... he'd made two shockers in a row, and was getting a helping hand from the referee to fix up his second one, why go stuff that up? It was like he was intent on having a shocker.
Speaking of shockers, how poor was Gardner tonight?
Nah mate, Hayne was hopeless for both sides. What about Burrow being called back from an open try line when we'd knocked it on, just so that he (Burrow) could feed a scrum? Hayne had some shocking calls, and both teams suffered as a result.
