Refs safe despite massive blunders

6:40 am on 23 March 2010

The National Rugby league refs Shane Hayne and Brett Suttor are safe despite their boss admitting the final pass for Paramatta's match-winning try against Manly last weekend travelled five metres forward.

Referees boss Robert Finch has conceded his officials blundered twice in the Parramatta-Manly clash won 24-20 by the Eels, costing both sides tries against them.

But Finch was even more criticial of the sideline official whose case will be considered today.
