Counting down the top 50 biggest moments of the 2018 NRL season: Part 1

39. Red flags

One of the biggest refereeing controversies of the season was when touch judge Ricky MacFarlane incorrectly raised his flag in the lead up to a Sione Katoa try against the Raiders in Round 19. Canberra players stopped defending and Katoa shot through to score, with the Bunker confirming the try. It was a blow for the Raiders who were fighting to keep their season alive.

36 Wighton whacked by NRL

After being charged for a violent and drunken rampage in Canberra’s CBD in February, the Raiders suspended their fullback for six games. After witnessing CCTV footage of the incident, the NRL came over the top of the club and slapped the 25-year-old with a 10-game ban, ruling him out for the remainder of the season, as well as a $30,000 fine.
