Brumbies want ref changed

The Brumbies have heavily criticised referee Steve Walsh’s performance and called for him to be replaced for Saturday’s crucial Super 14 clash with the Reds in Canberra.

AAP reports that the Brumbies are still upset about Walsh’s controversial handling of the 19-12 loss to the Waratahs last Saturday, and Wallaby star Matt Giteau felt it was pointless for the Brumbies to play the match if the Sydney-based New Zealander Walsh is officiating.

Brumbies coach Andy Friend on Monday remained hopeful Walsh would be dropped from the pivotal match by SANZAR referees’ boss Lyndon Bray following the weekly review of officials on Tuesday.

“We’ll wait and see whether he’s the referee,” Friend said. “They have a review tomorrow [Tuesday] and they have got a promotion and relegation system and hopefully you would like to see that in place and working.

“That’s up to the selectors to give their view and we can only deal with what we see and I thought the first 30 minutes it wasn’t a very even contest.”

According to AAP, the Brumbies compiled a scathing report of the refereeing of their game against the Waratahs last Saturday where they were unhappy with numerous areas, especially a disallowed try to Adam Ashley-Cooper and countless scrum resets and penalties.

Brumbies skipper Stephen Hoiles and Walsh had some heated verbal exchanges during the match and Giteau was frank when asked whether he was hoping Walsh would be relegated.

“I think everyone is,” Giteau commented. “Mate, I don’t know if we will turn up – what’s the point?”

Giteau also gave his opinion about the dubious “double-movement” ruling against Ashley-Cooper in the first half. “Like anyone that knows rugby, that was a try,” he said.

AAP reports that New Zealand-based Bray was not contactable on Monday but both the Brumbies, who are seven points outside the top four, and Reds will have their eyes on refereeing appointment confirmations on Tuesday.

Australian referee Paul Marks was dropped from a Round Five appointment after being deemed to have delivered a crucial wrong call by not awarding the Sharks a match-winning penalty try against the Waratahs from an illegal Kurtley Beale knockdown.

Meanwhile, Giteau is relishing the challenge of playing against Reds flyhalf Quade Cooper, who has been one of the standout players in the competition.

“It’s going to be a big challenge but like any Australian side, the 10 is always measured by how the team is performing so hopefully our side wins and that’s all I care about,” Giteau said. “The Wallabies is the furthest thing from my mind, I’m just worrying about the Brumbies.”

  • Giteau living up to the first portion of his surname.

    I hope Cooper runs all over him and then all around him.

  • HAHAHA!!! If they think Walsh was bad before, they have another thing coming. A couple of Yellow and maybe a red card should set things straight.

  • Perhaps Walsh was hitting the bottle again.

    Speaking of Kiwi’s I was just thinking that if the Crusaders don’t pull their fingers out… there might not be any NZ teams in the semi’s.

  • Good for Gits – this man is (stupidly) standing up for my Weber that disapeared with Walsh’s performance.
    Was’nt Walsh caught winking at one of the Warraths front rowers earlier this year?

    Nope I am an analyzer technician in an oil refinery.

    I helped out with anti doping a few seasons ago when I couldn’t ref at the Dubai 7s. Have been doing it at the odd event RWC 7s Dubai 2009 was the last. I reffed at the 09/10 Dubai 7s in Dec ’09 as a last big event and retired in Jan.

    I will now be doing anti-doping at future dubai 7s. Am hoping to still make the Bangkok 7s as a referee one last time in October.

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 53) : If he did it would be great for the game although I am skeptical. He left NRL because he wanted more money (ok he did get a bit screwed but $400,000 a year!!!) The only reason he went to play rugby was because he couldn’t play NRL. Toulon has the money and they can afford to pay him well above what he would make playing for NZ and a NZ team.

    If he was someone like McCaw or Carter you know he is playing for the game…

    An easier explaination for a bunny is a hollowed out loaf of bread (or a half loaf or a quarter loaf) filled with curry. Quite tasty.

  • Brumbies playmaker Matt Giteau is facing suspension and a hefty fine for criticising referee Steve Walsh in the wake of his side’s crucial Super 14 loss to the Waratahs.

    The Brumbies are still fuming over a decision by Walsh to disallow a try in their 19-12 loss in Sydney at the weekend and are pushing for him to be stood down from this weekend’s roster.

    Walsh is also scheduled to take charge of the Brumbies’ clash with the Reds in Canberra on Saturday which the ACT side must win if they are to have any hope of making the finals.

    It is believed the Brumbies have appealed to SANZAR referees boss Lyndon Bray to drop Walsh for the match but an announcement will not be made until Wednesday at the earliest.

    However, it is Giteau that could miss the next match after slamming Walsh’s performance and suggesting there would be no point in turning up against the Reds if the referee was not stood down.

    The Australian Rugby Union on Tuesday referred Giteau’s comments to the SANZAR secretariat in New Zealand for determination on whether he may have breached the players’ code of conduct.

    If he has Giteau will likely face a judiciary hearing on Thursday.

  • So they can moan as much as they like? Softies! When us supporters moan about a ref (read Paul Marks) they tell us to get over it and learn to play the ref!
