    She will do a horrible fucken job but it wont be any worse than the current mongs fucking up game after game. The NRL might as well employ rock apes to officiate, it cannot get any worse. Good onya luv, don't burn the scones at halftime FFS.

    What a pioneer indeed. Woman of power ! Would love to see her do well.

    I suspect regardless of her performance, some dickheads are just going to focus on any marginal errors she might make.

    I hope she shows that she no better or worst off than her male counterparts, so we see more women in the game.

    I have no doubt the players will show her respect but I’m not so sure about those in the peanut gallery.

    Associated rule changes:

    1) Penalties now awardable for infringements 8 weeks later.

    2) Selected previous infringements never forgotten, raised when convenient and penalised again.

    3) Captains querying decisions told ‘If you don’t know what you’ve done’.

    A dogs game anywhere equals loads of penalties to the opposition mate. Lol

    @Realist90 :grinning: woman can be referees too!

    Probably a scape goat. If she has a shocker NRL will sack her and say "see we do sack refs for bad performances".

    Problem is why is a QLDer from Brisbane doing a game in Brisbane for a QLD team.

    That stinks, nothing wrong with being female but send her down to Sydney and have her ref one of the games where there is no conflict there.

    Good luck to her indeed. Nothing against a female in the job, the blokes are doing a ratshit job so there is no harm in trying something different. Can't see her being much chop though TBH, I remember her running the touch lines in NYC a few years ago and she blatantly missed a ball bouncing 50cm over the sideline.
    At least she will be thankful that Hungry Haynesy isn't on the field.

    4) When querying where to take a penalty kick, Ref "I don't care. Where do you want to kick it from?"

    Look, I'm going to make a point here. Do people remember the Women's SoO that was on a few weeks ago? Why didn't she officiate that game then? Why have a male referee in the middle when this one was available? If women really want equality, why not have them all officiate women's games, and have men officiate the NRL games (and this includes the touch judges)?
