Editorial - Monday, September 16: C’mon refs, get it right

ROBBED again...

Surely the refs would be on their absolute best behaviour at an elimination final - but no, again they've let the North Queensland Cowboys down.

Now I love myself a bit of Beau Ryan as much as the next girl, and with matching surnames I'm sure it's fate that we one day wed, but c'mon buddy, that try was a doozey.

And that's at no fault of his, it's the guys in pink who are to blame.

Who on Earth forgets to count the tackles in such an important game and then calls it a try on what was the seventh tackle?

Even Blind Betty would know there were too many tackles before Beau The Babe Ryan slid over the try line.

I think Johnathan Thurston put it best when he said: "We are playing at the best of our ability, why aren't the refs doing their job to the best of theirs".
