Robinson to escape fine for bunker blast

Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson is unlikely to be reprimanded for his spray at the NRL bunker following his side’s NRL loss to Canterbury.

For the second time this year, the under-fire Roosters coach took aim at the video officials after their decision to overturn a Josh Jackson’s go-ahead try midway through the second half.

The Roosters eventually went down by four, and Robinson was livid with the call post-game.

“That was a no try, it was just an error again from the bunker, I just don’t understand it,” he said.

“I looked at it on a laptop in a change room and I saw Aidan Guerra’s hand pushed by Lichaa and they have I don’t know how many angles they need to see that and they just get it wrong.

“If you are going to spend that money, if you are going to have those camera angles then get it right.

“You guys (the media) need to ask questions. Because we are down the bottom of the ladder, we will move on and we will get a silent phone call and saying sorry we got it wrong.”

An NRL spokesperson told AAP the comments were still under review, but it is understood Robinson isn’t likely to face sanction.

Robinson was fined $40,000 earlier this year after attacking the credibility of referee Ben Cummins in an explosive aftermath to their Anzac Day loss to St George Illawarra.

Robinson, whose 15th-placed Roosters now face the near-impossible task of winning all eight of their remaining games to make the finals, simply said the bunker shouldn’t have got the call wrong.

“It is the rant of a losing coach I guess. But it is just unacceptable. Who is holding them accountable?” Robinson said.
