RL arent usually that sentimental and I would still expect to see Klein in the middle.

"This will be followed by a spectacular double header at Old Trafford with the womenís final up first.

Belinda Sharpe will be in charge as Australia and New Zealand meet in a clash of the southern hemisphere giants and she will be supported by Wyatt Raymond and Darian Furner as touch judges. Reserve referee will be Kasey Badger and video referee will be Adam Gee.

The menís final between Australia and Samoa will be officiated by Ashley Klein, who will take charge of a second World Cup final, having previously done so in 2008. Jack Smith and Warren Turley will be touch judges and the video referee will be Chris Kendal. Reserve official will be Gerard Sutton."

Congratulations to all, very deserved appointments.
I wonder - does it say something about the standard of refereeing in this country when, despite Australia being in both finals,  all 5 officials in the Ladies Final are Australian and we can only provide touch judges and video ref for the Mens Final in which both referee and reserve are Aussies too.
Any thoughts from those more au fait than myself?

Absolutely unbelievable scenes in the wheelchair final just now - the French touch judge got overruled and had an absolute meltdown, shouting at his fellow official and gesturing at him and the crowd. Never seen anything like it. He later stood behind the posts during a conversation and started hurling the flag around!

Obviously not fully aware of the rules etc and how the 2 officials are meant to work and who is senior, but it did appear that he had already disallowed an England try in the 1st half which was considered very harsh by those better informed than me.

He also objected to the winning try that was very clearly a clean try - extraordinary

Hi Can anyone provide a link as the BBC is geoblocked  here in Australia. And clearly it is not on the official highlights from the RLWC

This is a small segment of it https://twitter.com/Nick_Metcalfe/status/1593714741838495744

But it went on for a lot longer - he was hurling flags around when he was behind the posts, and he refused to put the medal around his neck during the medal ceremony. Extraordinary.

Footage has emerged of that official kicking off at the tournament director as well and having to get escorted off the pitch, also reports that he stuck up his middle finger at the crowd.

Think it's safe to say he won't be officiating again!

Yes, I think he might be 'rested' for a while, in the same way as the French football referee who took instant retribution after he was accidentally bowled over!


Babyref - 'sad', the whole darn saga not your post! Thank you for posting.

On more positive news, I thought Klein was very good in the final.
