    According to this site, he’s refereed several SL games already this season so you can’t put down his demeanour to first night nerves. One instance that summed him up to me was when he gave a penalty against Fifita under our posts; Fifita got up and remonstrated that his hair had been pulled. Any firm referee would have moved the penalty 10 metres but Griffiths did nothing. Brough then came over and was obviously told to go away but, as Richardson was shaping to kick to touch Brough stuck out his foot at the ball, causing Richardson to fumble it. Rather than march Wakefield 10 metres upfield, the referee merely told Richardson to get on with the kick. Such lack of incisiveness merely gives the players open licence to carry on moaning about decisions rather than getting on with the game.
    Agreed, but the refs try to keep the game flowing, if they blew for everything it would be penalty after penalty. I'm ok with this but not sure others would be
    Make a penalty worth 3 points, then the risk is greater

    I hate the ball carrier messing around at the PTB it ruins it, they are just trying to win a penalty, not saying this happened here, but it's why refs are never quite sure who is the one messing around
    If they ignore antics they should stop as all that happens is the PTB is even slower

    The answer is to have linesmen mark the 10m defence line and flag to the ref when the defending team encroaches. The ref can then stay at the ruck and PTB to police it properly.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Many of us on here have suggested the same over the past couple of years. It seems such a simple solution to us that I don't know why it is not enacted, unless we are missing something?

    Or 2 refs, one to specifically look after the play the ball and ruck, like the Australians do, in the hope that by splitting the role they can focus on certain issues and hopefully improve decisions and standard of play.

    Yeah think it's unfair on the players looking all the way to the touchline for their ten metres (as suggested above), and having two people doing it means you'll have , differences..

    Just getting 12 decent refs a weekend

    Just getting 12 refs, the barrel is very low and I'm not surprised.

    I think it would make things clearer - unless you are the winger, if you can see the touch judge with no player between you and him then you are offside, after a while it would become self policing provided that the refs, the TJ and the fans were willing to put up with the penalties created.
    Perhaps to lessen the impact it might be better to only be able to tap the ball at the penalty rather than kick the ball or build up the penalties so that you can only kick once it every 3 or 4 given, to stop persistent offside during the "bedding in" period.

    That is an old call BB.
    Lowerhouse pitch nearest the rear of the houses was "a take the ten" to stop window breakage claims. Them pitches also had the most amount of dog sh@t on them of any that North West Counties teams played on.
    Some owners had Great Danes with IBS.
