Referee’s boss Stuart Cummings says Wigan need to buy a new hooter at the JJB Stadium.
It comes after Friday’s match against Hull KR which saw referee Richard Silverwood allow a Rovers try after the half time hooter. Wigan had led 6-0, but went on to lose 20-12.
Cummings said: “Richard didn’t hear the hooter, and this isn’t the first time this has happened at Wigan. They need a louder hooter.”
Silverwood’s decision sparked fury among the home supporters and coach Brian Noble said: “The try was clearly after the hooter.”
