. In a post-match interview,

Steve Corica

has criticized the referee’s decision to reduce his team to 10 men. When asked if the red card was fair, Corica responded:

"No, but nothing's fair is it?"

he said.

"We all make mistakes and I think the referee tonight probably made quite a few mistakes and in the end, the red card, I don't think so.

"His foot was high, yes, but it wasn't a nasty challenge at all."

He added:

"If he got a yellow for that he would have been sent off tonight," Corica said.

"Like I said to the fourth official, yes, I think that's a yellow card. I'm not sure what game we're playing but it's football, not basketball."
