More referee drama has continued to circle the NRL world after a blatant forward pass effectively ended the preliminary final between Brisbane Broncos and New Zealand Warriors.
The Broncos saw their 24-12 lead move to an 18-point deficit after Reece Walsh’s missed forward-pass call led to the killer try.
The Broncos would go onto win 42-12 and in fairness, a fair result as a reflection of their dominance.
Though Blocker like many fans are very frustrated with the officials but suggested a way to officiate blatant forward passes as there is currently no way to review mistakes.
“Don’t stop the game,” said Roach.
“I’ll call him a whisperer.
“He comes in, whispers to the referee that’s a blatant forward pass.”
Though James Graham disagreed, worrying that more technology could ruin the nature of the game.
