‘You can’t do that’: Barrett blows up

Summary

The Dogs boss was furious over the call to award back-to-back tries to Herbie Farnworth as the Broncos came from behind to deny the home side a second consecutive victory to start the season.Farnworth stripped Braidon Burns of the ball and ran 40m to score his first four-pointer in the 51st minute, but Barrett felt the tackle needed closer examination as it involved three players and Burns’ momentum was almost halted.But it was Farnworth‘s second try in the 65th minute, which pushed Brisbane out to a matchwinning six-point lead, that really had him fuming.There was a hint of obstruction after Brisbane winger Corey Oates stopped in the defensive line from a scrum win, slightly impeding Burns and throwing the defensive line out of kilter.“The obstruction off the scrum, you can’t do that,” Barrett said.“It’s in the rule book and you can’t do it and it cost us badly. “That will be something we need to get some answers on. I don’t coach the players to lie down but maybe I will now.”Even Brisbane coach Kevin Walters admitted his side received the rub of the green on the second contentious try. “We probably got a little bit of luck there … ‘Oatesy’ did pull back on it,” he said.“We will take that one, but it could have gone the other way. “We lost a couple (of calls), so I think it balances out in the end.”Barrett conceded his team had multiple chances to seal the game but a lack of composure and poor execution cost them.He said: “We still had a lot of chances to win the game. We should have iced it.“But I thought we moved the ball a lot better than we have for a long time and we picked up where we left off last week in terms of effort and attitude and our defensive resolve was really good.”
