Catalans Fury At Ref's Calls
Catalan Dragons President Bernard Guasch has launched a scathing attack on the refereeing standards of Super League and has accused the officials of lacking partiality. The Perpignan-based club appear to hold the belief that the RFL don't want them to make the Grand Final due to worries over a small attendance.
Guasch has said: “Enough is enough. It is a shame for the competition and I am ashamed for Stuart Cummings, the chief referee official. I’m not asking that we benefit, but I would like impartial referees. We are sinking.” Guasch has even gone as far as hinting that Catalan may withdraw from Super League. "They have already nearly lost Bradford, but perhaps they will also lose another.”
Catalans have recently had some contentious decisions go against them, namely in home matches against St Helens and London, where the video referee disallowed several Catalan tries. However, Catalan did get the rub of the green with a try decision from the video referee in the London match, despite Millard appearing to ground the ball short of the try line. In the match against London, around 500 fans reportedly left after a Remi Casty try was harshly disallowed for obstruction.
Coach Trent Robinson said: “I’d be disappointed if I were a French fan. It’s not a feeling that decisions go against us, it is statistically weighted against us in the big games. The RFL need to do something. It better get better quickly.”
The RFL released a brief statement on the matter: “We are aware of Mr Guasch’s comments and are currently considering what further action is to be taken.”
