Watson questions RFL’s decision to appoint Kendall after defeat

Ian Watson was unimpressed with the performance of referee Chris Kendall following Salford’s defeat to St Helens.

The Red Devils were on the wrong end of an 11-9 penalty count, and Watson said: “We were on the rough end of some iffy decisions by the referee.

“I told him after the game I didn’t think his performance was the best and he did not disagree.

“The Rugby League should not have put a young lad into a match like this. He was under pressure from the home crowd from the start.”
