A former Super League referee took to Twitter to criticise the input of another former official Stuart Cummings for his role in Sky’s coverage of tonight’s Wigan vs Warrington clash.
Cummings’ role on Sky Sports has come under fire in the past, with Richard Silverwood now questioning the value his fellow former ref adds to the coverage after he seemingly instantly agreed with a controversial obstruction decision given against Wigan by on field referee Ben Thaler.
Reffing is tough and we/they get plenty right and wrong. Wish Stuart Cummings would be honest and call it right and not just back the official up. Never obstruction. Why be on there if your not honest. Makes it even worse
