The issue came to a head in round four, when referee Ben Cummins blew the pea out of the whistle 33 times in the match between Cronulla and Melbourne.

Rugby league Immortal Andrew Johns was scathing of the penalty count and claimed it had ruined the spectacle between two of the NRL’s fiercest rivals.

“Firstly I don’t blame the referees,” Johns said.

“I’m blaming whoever’s telling them to do this.

“Every ruck if you want you could award a penalty for different things.

“I went home as a fan after watching the Bulldogs-Rabbitohs game, sit back and enjoy the game, and it was destroyed by the referee.

“I was so disappointed, it just took away from the spectacle of two of our great teams, who have had a rivalry for the last five or six years.
