Last week it was announced Gerard Sutton and Ashley Klein would referee the opening game of the 2018 State of Origin series.

It was concurrently announced, Matt Cecchin who many regard as the number one referee in the NRL was not only overlooked for the first Origin game but was demoted to assistant referee for Round 13. 

Triple M's Bill Harrigan has absolutely ripped into Bernie Sutton's decision to demote Cecchin, saying he was "flabbergasted" when news filtered through. 

Billy certainly didn't mince his words during a heated "Judge Billy."
