Dane Gagai, sin bin, video, ref abuse, Newcastle Knights, Roosters, result


Dane Gagai allowed frustration to boil over during the Knights’ dismal loss to the Roosters when he unloaded on the referee, leading to the Newcastle firebrand being marched to the sin bin.

Gagai was sin-binned at the hour mark of the Knights’ 42-12 defeat to the Roosters in Newcastle on Friday night after ripping referee Peter Gough.

“That’s the second time this set,” Gough was heard saying to protesting Knights players.

Storm forward Brandon Smith was slapped with a three-game ban for calling referee Adam Gee “a cheating bastard” in his side’s loss to the Sharks in round 17.

He was charged with contrary conduct and referred directly to the tribunal, where his fate was decided.

The Knights’ loss to the Roosters was not only soured further by Gagai’s sin-binning, but Kalyn Ponga failing a head injury assessment.

The Knights co-captain and superstar fullback left play in the eighth minute after copping a lazy arm from mid-season Roosters recruit Matt Lodge.
