NRL admit 'refs got it wrong' in Manly loss


//

NRL Head of Football Graham Annesley has admitted the referees got it wrong in not calling a penalty for an escort on Manly’s Reuben Garrick in the final second.

Annesley told Triple M’s James Hooper that Des Hasler’s men should have been afforded the opportunity to send the game to golden point at 12-12 after Tim Lafai denied Garrick a jump at a last ditch high ball.

“I’ve spoken to the NRL’s Head of Football Graham Annesley this morning and for the Manly Sea Eagles fan, they’re going to be screaming ‘blue murder’ because he’s admitted the referees got it wrong,” Hooper told Triple M.

“It should have been a penalty and Daly Cherry-Evans and the Sea Eagles should have been given the rights to lock the scores up at 12-all.”

The moment marred what was a hard-fought contest of rugby league at Win Stadium on Saturday night. Following the controversy Cherry-Evans approached referee Dave Munro for an explanation after the final whistle, which was caught on camera.

“I need to ask the question because that’s black and white, that is an escort, the player taken off the ball,” he said said before Munro responded “We’ve ruled on it and ruled that it’s not.”

“You’re willing to make the hard call when the game wasn’t on the line and unfortunately then, that call needed to be made on the field,” Cherry Evans continued.

“It’s Chalk and cheese mate.”

Following the match coach Des Hasler confirmed that the he would be taking the matter to referees boss Bernard Sutton as he question the consistency of penalties being called.

"That last kick, the escort, I will be taking that to Bernie Sutton," he said.

"Because that sort of goes directly in the face of what they were taking about as far as the running of defenders off the ball so, I though it was questionable .

"It's not consistent with what they've been saying ...it would have taken the game at least into golden point."

Making matters worse for the Sea Eagles was the fact centre Brad Parker had minutes earlier been penalised for taking Euan Aitken off the ball, only for Lafai to miss a penalty goal that would've tied the scores 10-10.

Hasler claimed that was "even more innocuous" and questioned if anyone understood the rule.
