Cronulla Sharks coach Shane Flanagan has blown up at crucial decisions made by the referees that he believes cost his side their season. 

At the post-match press conference Flanagan described the referees performance as disgraceful. 

"We talk about decisions, crucial decisions and they were all wrong," Flanagan said. 

"We talk about getting people to the game but we have bigger issues, we need to fix this." 

However, as noted by Triple M's Gorden Tallis it was the performance rather than the referees that cost the Sharks the game.

"The Sharks missed 37 tackles compared to the Cowboys 10, only completed at 62% but it was the referee that cost you the game ... don't think so," Tallis said.
