“I have defended the NRL against crisis merchants all year but you can’t defend this”

BY SCOTT DILLON

Baffled media and fans have taken to social media to vent their frustrations after this weekend’s referee appointments were made.

Referee’s boss Bernard Sutton has decided not to sack his brother Gerard who was the lead official in the Shark Park debacle last Friday night.

Touch judge Ricky McFarlane and pocket referee Gavin Reynolds were dropped but not Reynolds. He will be lead referee in the Gold Coast Titans versus Warriors clash.

The81stminute’s lead NSW Cup commentator and editor of the81stminute.com Curtis Woodward is shocked at the decision.

“I can’t believe the other blokes get dropped but the lead referee from that Cronulla game doesn’t,” Woodward said.

“It’s obvious why Gerard didn’t get the boot. His brother runs the damned thing.
