Not one to comment on referees usually. As they have a hard job. 

But that game was the most appalling refereeing I have seen this year!! I hope an assessor was there, and the linesman who became the ref watches the footage.

The young ref who came on - First games as ref at this level. They emerged from thier aftermatch debrief about an hour after FT. 

The most puzzling decision for me who missed a lot of the action was the United Keeper jumping over his defender to catch the ball and landing on a TW player on the other side - who got yellow carded?

That was one among many strange decisions as the linesman and as the ref.

The assessor appeared to be Peter O'Leary. He was wandering around in NZ Football kit with a notepad.

Sounds like the type of performance I would expect from a VAR observer. Am I warm?

Some keyboard warriors need to remember that they have never read the laws of the game, immersed themselves in it, nor put into practical application. Consider piping down with just garbage opinions.

1: Yeah I know there is angst at Nick right now but he came off yesterday with a blown hamstring. That will probably rule him out of attending the WC seminar in Doha in 6 weeks time? Anyone on this forum going?

2: Chris Bennett who took over from Nick has only refereed Cap Premier and NYL - not even Central League. For a young developing referee with a great future and just done a half as an AR, he came on probably not expecting to in the 45 mins prior. Yeah, he may well have some mistakes but considering the jump in level he has just made, sounds like he did a reasonable job on a debut that’s still probably 4 years away.

Some of you guys need to serious zip it up with ignorant opinions on stuff you know nothing about. Don’t @ me either unless you are prepared to get your hands dirty yourself and referee (let me guess, because of the abuse?)

Chris Bennett did an excellent job given the circumstances - it was great to see him manage the game the way he did. He should be proud of his performance and he's going to be an excellent NL referee as he develops more.

Nick made some 'interesting' calls about whether things should be goal kicks or corners, at least one was horrifically wrong, but other than those he was fine on Sunday despite the angst (myself included in that).

Echoing this, have worked with Chris on a few occasions, and he's a great guy with a great love for the game. Capital are lucky to have young refs like him, committed to  hard work and focus on continual improvement.

I must say I like this statement. I was hoping to read about the actual game from people there as i am not in wellington, and was disappointed to see the thread focus on referees.

@journey fan expected a more reasoned opinion. @lone gunman you have no idea about refereeing.

was that in response to my comment on Nick Waldron? I was taking the piss, especially about the agnst round the VAR

He did make some what I would call "odd" decisions in the first half but it was as Pat said calling thrown in's \ goal kick \ corner decisions nothing major

Thought Chris did great when he came on and reckon he will go on and do well from what I've seen of him. The only thing I think he got wrong was when Draper jumped over the TW player and he booked the TW player, but he may have seen or heard something I didn't, but it did seem odd

Well said Chris.

However, if this young referee is lacking experience at any level above Capital Premier or NYL, why was he put in the position of having to take the whistle when the appointed referee broke down.  In the olden days (yeah, I know) we always had someone "in reserve" who was able to make a seamless transition if the referee called off or fell over.  Yes, the reason (or excuse) will be budgets, lack of money etc but that doesn't wash with me.  This is allegedly our premier competition which deserves the appropriate "third team".

I hope that Chris has not been put off by his experience.

Not good enough by NZF. 

I don't need anger management. I just need people to stop pissing me off

I thought it was always the 4th offical who took over if the ref went down? The replacement was on the line in the first half.

Fourth was Aaron Clarke which has about the same experience (or even less) than Bennett, so I would question why he was made fourth. Out of the three other referees working with Waldron, there was Mark Whitehead, Chris Bennett and Aaron Clarke. Whitehead was probably most experience referee but I'd say Bennett was the best choice to take the middle.

I'm an optimistic pessimist. 

I'm positive things will go wrong.

The replacement for the ref is technically at the discretion of the ref. Yes, in top level leagues, the 4th official is a direct replacement.l and comes from that select group of refs. (Top euro leagues also keep a standby assistant in the stadium).
