    Out of the lot, I think Amy Perrett has probably been the best this year. But as you say, the standard of officiating in Super Rugby AU has been pretty appalling - they just don't seem to have a feel for the game at all.

    Looking forward to some NZ referees in the Trans-Tasman comp as they have seemed far better

    Crikey - bagging the ref days before the match even kicks off! At least we can blame him if we lose and not consider how the team adapted to his refereeing, nor how they failed to counter the Brumbies' tactics.

    And if we win it was despite the appalling refereeing.

    Well obviously Australian teams will play the 22-50 rules and New Zealand teams will be allowed a captain's call.

    Hey Ecky

    I agree with you whole heartedly, we should not be trying to blame the ref before he/she has even blown the whistle to kick off the game. Like players and coaches, referees deserve respect as they have a tough job that I am sure many of us would not want to do.

    That being said, like players and coaches, referees are not above criticism. The standard of officiating in Super Rugby AU has been poor this year across many games that I have watched (not just force games). I think the touch judges are as much to blame as the refs but that is a different conversation.

    Maybe the solution to this conundrum is just as we compliment players and coaches after games where they have done well (by fans and the media alike), so referees should be complimented when they have good games.

    I' glad you're finally seeing sense after all these years of holding a completely indefensible view on the infallibility of refs.

    If the Ref has a mullet some random woman will come running out of the crowd to stop the match

    Much more descriptive than "bald mullet* or "flying Doormat".

    Wonder what's the correct term for these new models doing the rounds, with short sides, pretty normal top and mullet rear. The Richard Cranium?
