Annesley addresses the controversial decisions from Tigers-Cowboys clash

The NRL’s Head of Football Graham Annesley has conceded the Wests Tigers’ second try against the North Queensland Cowboys should have been referred to the Bunker where it would have been overturned due to a knock-on.

Annesley’s concession came in his weekly briefing with media over the round’s decisions.

However, despite Cowboys coach Paul Green and a number of other rugby league figures’ criticism of the penalty try awarded to Michael Chee Kam, Annesley has defended the call.

The referees boss said ultimately the law comes down to the opinion of the official involved and that there is never definitive evidence available.
