Shame on coward who punched ref - remember, it's a game

SHAME on the coward who king hit the young referee out at Calliope at the weekend.

Instead of that gutless punch, thrown to the back of the 20-year-old's head, you would've been best served staying home and giving yourself an uppercut, wherever you are.

The game of rugby league, especially in regional towns, does not need you.

The young ref who has been spotted as potential NRL material, does not need you.

He's been flown up here to help raise the standard of the local competition, a competition with several ex-professionals and plenty of potential, being let down by the idiotic actions of morons like yourself.

Regardless of what you thought of his officiating, what right do you have to do what you did?

At least he's out there, if you were so critical of him, why not apply for your refereeing badges and have a go yourself?

A great game battling to improve its image doesn't need "fans" like you, and let it serve as a timely reminder to all involved in local sport, a game is but that, just a game, no matter the score or the level of your passion, don't ever let a game make you forget common decency to others, including referees.
