Cowboys coach Paul Green could be the second coach in the space of a week to be hit with a $10,000 fine after giving the refs a spray in Friday night’s post-match press conference.
Following a disappointing 26-8 loss to Melbourne, Green said that all the 50-50 calls seemed to go in the Storm’s favour.
“That was the worst bloody refereeing display I have ever seen tonight,” Green said.
“There were some dead set calls that I had to ask my assistants ‘what was that for?’
“I just thought it lacked consistency.
“I’m not one to shift the blame away from our performance, but I thought the fans deserved more than that.
“There were two quality teams out there and I was left scratching my head at some of the calls.
“Melbourne was the better team on the night, there’s no doubt about it but…it’s just a shame the refs ruined the game.”
Dragons coach Paul McGregor was fined by the NRL during the week for calling the match officials “embarrassing” and “incompetent”.
