Titans coach Garth Brennan was left fuming after his side’s 20-12 loss to the Roosters on Sunday at Cbus Super Stadium.
it comes after two contentious referee decisions occurred during the game, the first a controversial try awarded to Roosters debutant Sean O’Sullivan, and secondly a missed forward pass that led to another Sydney score.
Asked what he thought of the game in the post-match press conference, Brennan simply said: “Frustrating.”
“(Because of) a number of areas,” Brennan told NRL Media.
“(NRL) Bunker made the call. They get a few looks don’t they?”
Titans skipper Ryan James also weighed in on the issue, saying “I thought the player was the best judge of what happened.
“He even knew he didn’t score a try but, I haven’t got ten grand,” he told NRL Media.
Brennan was clearly frustrated by both decisions, half sarcastically asking reporters which incident they were referring to when quizzed about the officiating.
“I just wanted to clarify which one you were talking about,” Brennan clarified, before throwing it straight back at the media: “What did it look like to you?”
The NRL referees boss Bernard Sutton has since admitted they got the O’Sullivan try wrong, admitting officials should have ruled it a knock-on.
“Once it touched the ground it constituted a knock on and should have been ruled that way,” he told NRL Media.
