The Triple M Grill Team's Matty Johns has come out in support of the Referee's, after they've copped a backlash over the number of penalties they have been blowing.
"The rules over the last couple of years have been slightly bent, slightly corrupted to the point its nearly got out of control. If players and coaches and clubs want less penalties then stop breaking the rules, its simple, stay onside, don’t lay on the tackle too long" said Matty Johns.

NRL boss Todd Greenberg then called in to back Matty and said "The referees are doing exactly what I've asked them to do"
"They are going to keep blowing penalties, and i'm going to keep giving them that direction"
