It has been a tough season for the NRL, with the early rounds overshadowed by criticisms of inflated penalty counts after Greenberg ordered the referees to crack down on the play-the-ball and the 10-metre rule.

The issue came to a head in round four, when referee Ben Cummins blew the pea out of the whistle 33 times in the match between Cronulla and Melbourne.

Rugby league Immortal Andrew Johns was scathing of the penalty count and claimed it had ruined the spectacle between two of the NRL’s fiercest rivals.

“Firstly I don’t blame the referees,” Johns said.

“I’m blaming whoever’s telling them to do this.

“In the off season there was an edict they’re going to crack down on the play the ball with your foot which I think was ok, and the 10 metres, but it’s the nit-picking in other areas.

“Every ruck if you want you could award a penalty for different things.

“I went home as a fan after watching the Bulldogs-Rabbitohs game, sit back and enjoy the game, and it was destroyed by the referee.

“I was so disappointed, it just took away from the spectacle of two of our great teams, who have had a rivalry for the last five or six years.
