The Queensland MP was asked about his thoughts on Belinda Sharpe being selected as the first woman to referee an NRL game.

'He was a sheila, there was no doubt about it. I kept shouting from the stands ''You sheila, you bloody sheila'',' Mr Katter said.

He then followed that up with detailing some of his football injuries.

'I can't help but make the comment if you looked at photos of me when I was much younger I was very handsome but now my nose droops and goes sideways and one of my eyebrows droops,' Mr Katter said.

Ms Langdon interrupted saying she couldn't see how this was related to female referees in the game.

'We don't want women playing football cause they'll have a nose like mine - and if you're not playing football it's a bit hard to see how you could referee properly,' Mr Katter said.

'I'm just going to say okay,' Ms Langdon said after pausing for a moment.

Sharpe will make her refereeing debut on Thursday night when the Bulldogs play the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium.
