7 Minute Blast for Refs

7 posts in this topic

You know the feeling. You've had what you consider to be some tough calls from the ref against your team. Even worse, you're the coach of the team. Even worse a microphone is put in front of you soon after and the cameras are running.

How long could you go on about the 'injustice' of it all?

Ricky Stuart managed seven minutes.

 

I hope he felt better afterwards as it is likely to cost him a fine of $10,000 (nearly £7000)

The club issued a statement today saying the club and Stuart "wish to apologise for any offence taken from the language used in the post-match press conference."

250 quid (SL) v about £7,000 (NRL) -

Ricky Stuart is an idiot who needs to go on a refs course and learn the rules. Then perhaps he would realise how hard a refs job is.
