'They're going to ruin the game': legends slam refs


//

NRL guru Phil Gould has slammed the officiating of the State of Origin decider criticising the referees for “interfering with the game”.

10 penalties within the first half hour saw a stuttering opening period as both sides struggled to grab a significant foothold in the game.

NSW managed to get on the board first through a James Maloney penalty afforded to David Klemmer.

And when Felise Kaufusi crashed over for the first try of the night in the 14th minute, Gould took aim at the constant stoppages impeding the flow of play.

Penalties high in Origin decider

“The referees are interfering with the game tonight,” Gould told Nine.

Queensland great Paul Vautin doubled down on Gould’s assessment, particularly in light of the eight total penalties issued in Game One, and 13 in Game Two.

"They seem happy to blow the whistle tonight. And to be honest some of the penalties have been bewildering,” he said.

"They're going to ruin the game if they keep it up."

At the end of 40-minutes of play the penalty count rose to 12 with seven of those afforded to NSW and five to QLD.

Maroons draw first blood

Maroons captain Daly Cherry-Evans conceded it was an aspect of the game his troops needed to be aware of ahead of the second half.

We've got to stay disciplined and get the penalties out [of our game]” he said.

Both sides entered the sides locked at 8-8.

MORE TO COME.
