So, overall a game with another high penalty count. The official who watched this game with me said a couple of penalties could have gone either way. The missed forward pass by McGilvray late doors was a poor decision that should have been picked up. But overall he said Mr Klein had a decent game and his hands were tied with having to give some of the decisions but others could have gone either way.
