I donít know a lot about Australian R L but this would seem to be his 7th NRL final in 9 years.
Is Australian refereeing in such a poor state that they have to continually appoint the same person or is it just that he is outstanding at what he does?

Australian RL refereeing is not in dire straights and Sutton is not that good either. The powers that be currently won't appoint referees like Grant Atkins for some unknown reason. We also lost Matt Checchin this year who retired. He was imho the best referee but again fell foul of the powers that be. Sutton's real rise to the top occurred while his brother has in charge and he has not shaken that tag. Two years ago he was the Assistant referee to Ben Cummins and overstepped the role and this saw Ben ultimately make a game defining decision. Ben has never recovered his status from this and has not done a State of Origin match or finals game since then.
