North Queensland coach Paul Green has launched a tirade against Friday night’s match officials after winger Nene Macdonald broke his leg in the 75th minute.
Macdonald was laid out on the grass for more than 30 seconds before the referees stopped play, which Green labelled as a “disgrace”.
“That was an absolute debacle,” Green said post-game.
“We had a trainer out there.
“It was explained to our captain on field that the process is that the trainer has to go to the touchie.
“Our blue shirt (trainer) was standing next to the touch judge asking them to stop the game.
“We had our doctor on the field.
“We had our yellow shirt (trainer) with the pocket ref and he got sent away.
