Manly star speaks out on Warriors sin-bin rage


//

The man at the centre of the Adam Blair controversy, Manly hooker Manese Fainu, has jumped to the defence of the Warriors skipper, claiming he should never have been sin-binned on Friday night.

The Warriors were cruising at 18-0 when Blair was sin-binned late in the game for 'escorting' after a kick, sparking a Manly fightback.

The Sea Eagles scored three quick tries, almost snatching an undeserved win, before the Warriors hung on for a 24-16 win.

"He did get in my way a bit but it was nothing more than a penalty - he should not have been binned," Fainu told Wide World of Sports.

"I think looking at other games the refs are putting a blitz on and he was the victim of that."

Blair appeared to merely hold his line, with the collision accidental, and his sin binning has sparked a furore across the Tasman, where there is a perception that referees favour Australian teams.

A furious Warriors halfback Blake Green told referee Ben Cummins, "Just kick us out of the comp" as Blair headed for the bin after the contentious call.
