Fans have reacted to the NRL's first female ref at a Toyota Cup game, as Kasey Badger blew the whistle at the Manly-Titans clash at Brookvale Oval.

The flow of Twitter comments was positive despite Matty Johns earlier suspecting she would "cop it a little".

In contrast Kasey said the players are on the best behaviour around her.

"A lot of them will apologise if they swear around me now and say 'sorry miss'," she told The Herald Sun.
