    That was the worst ref performance I think I've ever seen in all my years watching the NRL.

    Are there any other games that top this one?

    Way worse.

    Today's wasn't even that bad. It was basically what most teams get every week. It just seemed worse because we absolutely just could not hold the ball.

    Lets just be happy the forwards and halves didn't give up at halftime and actually kept the scoreline respectable while playing without a backline.

    If anything, this is the worst backline performance I can remember seeing.

    More importantly, worst Golden Boot performance EVER.

    Shaun Johnson can hold his head up high and say he was responsible for that.

    Solomone Kata can take a large chunk of the credit as well.

    When you are centre for one of the most prolific try scorers in the games history, the first thing you do is look to set him up. Kata duffed 3 near-guaranteed Manu tries!

    But I am calling it now, and will stand by my call. It is reserve grade tiem for Johnson. He is incapable of winning games. Not just the conversion, or his woeful bombs (excluding the couple that were fixed by his team), but that stupid run at the line to try to take the glory. He is not worthy of the Golden Boot award.

    We are where we are, IN SPITE of Shaun Johnson, not because of him.

    He is not worthy of a ANZAC jersey for either the Warriors or the Kiwis.

    Remember how they penalised Locke for a "cannon ball" tackle in front of the sticks lmao.

    Add to that Maxwell being caught winking on camera.

    Gees, I thought Shaun was better this week. Played a good role in both Kata and Allwood's try, was starting to take the line on, and a couple of efforts in defence were critical. If anything, he was the one trying to hold Johnno Wrong and Matty Allwood from crapping their daks over and over.

    The finger firmly goes in the direction of Johnno Wrong and Manu's woeful hands before SJ and Kata. C Money also bombed a deadset try, and threw a couple of horrific passes, SJ made him look good at times picking it up off his boot laces.

    We still outran the broncos according to the nrl.com stats. When we had the momentum we ran in the tries and outplayed the broncs that entire second half. This was a game we would have won had we been even 50% of our best, but its not the end of the world. I thought Tui had some great touches and I love how he runs straight into the line to start our sets. If Hurrell comes back just get Wright out, that bloke is another Neilsen. made some awful defensive decisions today

    Actually, Johnson has copped it, every year except last year from me. Mautlino is great when he is happy, but when things don't go his way, then we see the real Benny. And he needs to decide whether to offload after he has the ball, not before.

    I would say its par for the course which is disappointing.

    Refs currently have too much influence on the outcome and it's starting to be a real blight on the game.

    our errors aside, it was still a pretty shocking ref performance, why, WHY? did the ref go to video replay when it was a blatant knock on, and over the dead ball line at that, he was only a few feet away? dumb ass ref make the damn call, bloody wimp, Lisones knockon when Thaidays leg was clearly in the play the ball,
    and the worst call with five mins to go was crucial and turned the game, how the hell can you call that advantage is beyond me, now I havnt taken a closer look at it just yet, but man nothing worst then a ref deciding the fate off the game on his own blatant error? also there were a few other dubious decisions as well...

    First the media releases story about Tomkins being homesick earlier during the week. Then gameday this disgusting BS.

    The only positive is Hoffman giving a spray to the boys after the last try was scored. I am quietly confident we will be better prepared for this BS during finals.

    Our 20th anniversary game was no different than the majority of games we have played in those years

    We have never got the rub of the green from the Aussie refs

    Even Kevin Campion said he thought the complaints were bullshit until he had played for the Warriors for a season

    On the way out of the ground I said to two cops that they needed to go into the ground and arrest six criminals who had just stolen 2 points from us!!

    No, just typical of 2015 across the board.

    I think the hype and anticipation surrounding the Aussie Kiwi cricket final clouded the refs minds a little and made it impossible for them to give us a fair game...

    Hopefully we get a more even spread next weekend...
