Leeds not happy

Nelson Mail - - SPORT -

Leeds claim they have been blind­sided by an NRL de­ci­sion to play tonight’s World Club Chal­lenge against Mel­bourne with two ref­er­ees. The Rhi­nos were told on Wed­nes­day the AAMI Park game will be of­fi­ci­ated by two NRL ref­er­ees de­spite agree­ing with the Storm two months ago that the game would be played un­der in­ter­na­tional rules, with only one whistle­blower. ‘‘For the NRL to move the goal­posts at 48 hours’ no­tice and af­ter no con­sul­ta­tion with our­selves is to­tally ar­ro­gant and sim­ply not on,’’ Leeds chief ex­ec­u­tive Gary Hether­ing­ton told the York­shire Evening Post.
