Micky... the ref wasn't up to scratch. End of. He didn't lose us the game but his level of inconsistency was ghastly. So much so that tonight was the first time I've ever seen a request to the stewards to escort him off which they did. That was very telling. The two Frenchies invading the pitch was hilarious too.

By the way our try came because he played advantage from a late tackle!


So if the outcome has nothing to do with it, why does the disciplinary panel use a consideration of potential to cause serious injury? Got to say the ref was rubbish tonight, how the hell he gave a penalty for Sid being held on the floor and then having his legs held when trying to play the ball god only knows.

Ganson has to face up to the fact that this new generation of referees are not up to the job.
What he does about it I do not know, but something has to be done. If he cannot deal with this task, then sorry Mr Ganson , then you have to go.
Surely we a due to have one of the more senior referees at some point this season.

I suppose this is what you get when you have a crap ref in charge of refereeing.

When you have a weak ref in charge - for any sport - experienced players recognise it immediately and take advantage of it. And that's what Catalans did last night. The slowed every ruck, they were not onside for one single tackle, and eventually Moa took advantage of it in the most gruesome way. The hit on Abdull was late, it was to the head, and it was against a defenceless man. There's a video on twitter - and it's an ugly, ugly hit. A cowardly hit.

Even then the ref only got involved because Pelissier jumped in and it forced him to stop the game. Otherwise he wasn't going to do anything. And he still took the advice of Tomkins and Bird before making a decision.

Funny how the Sky Team and the majority of Broncos fans do not agree with comments about the tackle Sky are saying it was a late tackle. With severity of the result of the tackle he should of been sent off. This is not the first time Moa has badly injured one of our players he did it when he played for Hull and got a three match ban.

Great post Catalans are always in the REFs ear.

What did the Touch judges do wrong by the way?

Missed god knows how many forward passes and at least half a dozen late tackles on our players.

Both the supposed ref and touch judges were totally inefficient. Fighting broke out because of the weak idiot in the middle who should not be allowed to pull on a ref's shirt again. Catalan were allowed to get in the idiots ear all evening and they were actually reffing the game not the middle man in the yellow short. (I wont call him a ref as this degrades all decents refs throughtout the game). Time and time again one of our players were taken out after the play the ball, time and time again they were held down to make sure they could not get a quick play of the ball. He needed to notice two teams on the pitch not just one. It is the first time in 27 years of watching rugby that I have seen security requested for the ref, why was that? Every ref at a Broncos game has never felt he needed added security. Why did our fans boo the Cats of the pitch, again in all my years I cannot remeber a team being so badly booed at the end of the game, A few jeers now and again but nothing compared to last night. Why supposedly did a fight break out with the players AFTER the final whistle. Again this is something I have never seen. We probably lost the game through our own mistakes but it was not helped by losing our game player and in such a manner and with the injustice of the 10 min sin bin when it should have been red. . Our game turned drastically after that brutal cowardly attack. On this one occassion I do not blame the players for losing the game as even though they are profesionals it must have upset them to see their mate in such a bad way I blame the officials.

You can see from the Sky highlights that it is a late swinging arm to the head. More appropriate for the boxing ring really.
