State of Origin: Laurie Daley wants answers from referees boss

A frustrated Laurie Daley will meet referees boss Tony Archer as the Blues coach believes there were a host of calls that went against his side.

The Blues are privately fuming with the way referees Shayne Hayne and Ben Cummins officiated the match, particularly towards the end of the game, where the NSW camp believes a stack of calls went to the home team. In particular, there was an instance when play was stopped late in the game after Greg Inglis was tackled. Inglis offered the ball to teammate Justin Hodges to play it, so he could revert to the left side of the field where he almost scored from the next play.

An Inglis try would have left the Blues furious.

State of Origin: Qld v NSW

Daley woke early on Thursday to review the game. The NSW coach said he would speak to Archer and ask for a "please explain" on several fronts.

"I think I will go through the right channels," Daley said. "I will calm down. I just want some explanations, that's all. I want some explanations, and if they give me the right explanations I would love to see what they are because I am bewildered.

"There are plenty [of calls I am not happy with]. I am not going to go into specifics."

The Blues finished behind 7-4 on the penalty count as they managed to hold on to secure a famous four-point win. They have now lost nine of the past 10 Origin penalty counts in Brisbane. 

Suspended Blues enforcer Greg Bird said it was frustrating to watch.

"There were so many 50-50 calls and I feel like every single one of them – not even 50-50 calls – but every single one of them went against us," Bird said. "The boys didn't drop their head. They can take some confidence from that.

"I thought we were great in the first half and executed our good ball sets. Getting out of own end we were great.

"I feel like I aged about 10 years. I am so happy and proud of the boys and the effort they put in. It was one of the best performances they've put in, if not the best. I wasn't sitting down a great deal. I was standing up and sitting down. I had a lot of energy."

  • The dirties of the lot was when Hayne made the break at 12 -4 up and Jennings was flying past the Qld defence one of the Qlders grabbed Jennings by the jumper and held him back then Hayne was stripped in the tackle and 2 mins later qld scored. would have been a NSW try, the qlder should have been in the bin for ten but as usual the QLD team is protected to appease the two heads.

    • Great game last night, but I thought it was marred by a lot of milking for penalties from both sides, very disappointing if that is a sign of the future of the game.

      • I would love to see the explanation for how Thurston can knock the ball on and receive a penalty. The bloke is good but I've never seen that before.

        Both QLD tries came off incorrect decisions, I'd like to see those explained as well.

        But NSW fans have seen this many times in the past, whenever the QLDers are truly in trouble there the refs are with a stack of dubious and plain wrong calls to bail them out of trouble.

        All the refs have to do is get the big calls right and be consistent in their rulings, it really should not be that hard.

        If QLD beat us in game two fair enough, they're a great team but make them do it by themselves on the park, don't hand them another game (and probably another series).

        • I suggest the whole of NSW go and watch the press conference held by Meninga and Smith after game one.
          The NSW team and coach could learn a lot about grace, humility and how to be good winner and loser.
          Daley and Bird complaining about 50/50 calls just shows that NSW have no class at all and the down grading of Reynolds dangerous throw also proves you have no idea

          • The refereeing was one of the poorest ever in an origin match.

            No one, I mean no one, NSW or Qld is denying it, no compliments whatsoever.

            Ben was restricted as he was announced as assistant to Shayne Hayne who must

            certainly be dropped for Origin 2. Tony Archer has 2 other whistleblowers at his disposal

            of international quality in Ashley Klein & Matt Cecchin.

            They refereed the minor premiership decider at Allianz Stadium in 2013 as a pairing

            with no complaints whatsoever.

            Laurie Daley is entitled to complain on behalf of his team & State.

            I am surprised Mal Meninga & Qld are silent.

              • I wouldn't look too hard at the video Laurie. Penalty against hodges in the ply the ball was a joke- Nsw score. Hayne double movement-Nsw score. Haynes not penalised for jumping on slater-qld loose possession. Morris running back on from outside play and offside to tackle ingles in a two on one situation- should have been penalty and sin bin. It was a slim win with plenty of calls going Nsw way. Hopefully they carry on like last year and get blown away in game 2 and 3. Unbelievable that Bird and Reynolds are available. Hope no one gets injured again because it's clear these tackles are now ok again.

                • Now all of NSW knows how it feels to be a Sea Eagles supporter. The second half of last year's Grand Final was refereed in the same manner as the second half of the State of Origin game was on Wednesday night.
                  How anyone can think that Shane Hayne is the best referee available is beyond me.
                  There was missing Tate's knocking on of the Nate Myles bomb, that lead to a QLD scrum feed, that led to their first try.
                  There was the "knock on" by NSW when the ball hit Hodkinson's arm and was regathered by a NSW player - behind where it hit Hodkinson.
                  There was Michael Jennings being held out of the play - by a slower player - as he loomed up in support on Jarryd Hayne's left when Hayne made that break. If Jennings isn't impeded, he gets to Hayne before the slower Queenslanders, Hayne draws Slater, passes Jennings the ball, Jennings scores. Instead, Queensland end up getting the ball off the isolated Hayne. No penalty, no sin bin, nothing.
                  Where were the touch judges in all this as well?

                    • Considering how many calls went against the Maroons in the game, I am amazed that Laurie has the gall to question the refs. There may have been a square-up near the end (oh no, we don't do that, do we!!) but he needs to sit down & re watch the game from a bit of a distance & see how many calls went the Blues way. Plus he has nothing to be cranky about now that Reynolds is off the hook - the NRL couldn't make it any more obvious that they believe the way for Origin to survive is for NSW to win this series. The riffing in the NRL has been biased enough but now it is seeping through to Origin too!!! I am so close to being over this game it is not funny!!!
