Another referee bites the dust

REFEREES boss Bill Harrigan has made his second sacking of the week, this time removing video referee Phil Cooley of his duties.

Cooley's paid the price for incorrectly ruling that Storm prop Bryan Norrie was onside in the build up to Cooper Cronk's first half try against the Raiders.

His sacking is the second this week, after Harrigan also removed Jarred Maxwell from the lineup for his offside blunder in the Tigers' win over the Sharks.
