THESE are the crystal clear images which prove that Jarryd Hayne was right — Parramatta were robbed on Sunday.

The Eels coaching staff yesterday reviewed the controversial loss to Manly at Brookvale and found blatant inconsistencies from referees Jared Maxwell and Grant Atkins.

And the NRL has conceded that the two whistleblowers made mistakes.

Frustrated at losing 22-18 in the final 53 seconds, and having to overcome a 10-4 penalty count, Hayne exploded on the field at fulltime, describing the refereeing as "disgraceful".

The NRL yesterday resisted the temptation to fine Hayne $10,000. But Hayne had every right to be angry. The game was littered with refereeing inconsistencies.

In the seventh minute, Parramatta prop Fuifui Moimoi was penalised for a hand on the ball. But when Manly's Glenn Stewart and Dunamis Lui committed a similar indiscretion in the 29th minute, Parramatta didn't get a penalty. Sea Eagles hooker Matt Ballin also wasn't penalised for a hand on the ball in the 71st minute.

It didn't get any better for Parramatta when it came to high shots.

Manly winger Cheyse Blair avoided a penalty despite a dubious tackle on Hayne in the 37th minute, but Eels winger Semi Rad­radra was penalised for a high shot on Daly Cherry-Evans near fulltime.

Parramatta were also dudded in the play-the-ball. In the 27th minute, Eels forward David Gower was penalised, although Manly's Josh Starling avoided a penalty despite a dodgy play-the-ball in the seventh minute.

And Manly's James Hasson got away with a horrible play-the-ball in the 79th minute — seconds before Manly scored a late try to win.

"We were definitely disappointed with some of the decisions," Parramatta coach Brad Arthur said yesterday.

"At the end of the day, we need to be better ourselves and not use these things as an excuse if we lose a game.

"But some of the decisions — I'm not quite sure what they were about.''

Arthur contacted NRL referees elite performance manager Tony Archer to vent his frustration.

"I just asked him to explain what we are doing wrong," Arthur said.

Asked whether Manly received the "rub of the green", Arthur said: "Definitely. But the really good teams don't let these things affect them. But it definitely didn't help us."

The NRL reviewed Hayne's comments but didn't believe they were "excessive" or attacked the credibility of the referees.

NRL head of football Todd Greenberg said: "We are still finalising reviews of round three but across the opening rounds the quality of the football and the standard of the refereeing has been excellent.

"Our match officials make hundreds of decisions every match. They will make mistakes from time to time and there are some errors we have identified in this match.''
