Finch drops
Nash and admits Lyons got it wrong

National Rugby League referees coach Robert Finch has dropped touch judge Steve Nash over the controversial ruling in Saturday's match between the Dragons and the Bulldogs which led to the Dragons being fined today.

Finch also admitted referee Steve Lyons got it wrong in awarding a penalty to Manly that led to the historic first golden points in an NRL match yesterday.

Lyons has a calf injury and is unlikely to be fit to referee this weekend. The Dragons were fined $10,000 by the NRL over comments by coach Nathan Brown in relation to Nash's decision, which proved the turning point in Saturday night's game at WIN Stadium.
