Sandow sent to the bin after comment to ref

The 60th-minute sin-binning of Parramatta linchpin Chris Sandow proved the turning point of the Eels’ heavy 46-20 defeat at the hands of Melbourne at AAMI Park on Sunday.

After the visitors conceded a penalty on their own try-line, Sandow asked referee Ben Cummins: “How much are they paying you?” Presumably he meant the Storm, but whatever Sandow’s inference was, he questioned Cummins’ integrity and was immediately despatched.

The Eels trailed by just eight points at the time and well were in the match, but capitulated while they were a man short as the Storm rolled in for three tries and built an unassailable 40-16 lead.
