NRL touchie axed over forward pass gaffe

Touch judge Gavin Reynolds has borne the brunt of the blame for the missed forward pass in Manly's NRL loss to Parramatta after being dumped to the Toyota Cup this weekend.

Reynolds will referee the St George Illawarra-North Queensland NYC clash in Wollongong on Friday night, with his axing following the extraordinary gaffe which allowed Joel Reddy's 74th minute try to stand despite an obvious forward pass from Kris Keating in the lead-up.

The try was part of a dramatic Eels fightback, as the home side recovered from 20-0 down to beat Manly 24-20 at Parramatta Stadium on Sunday.

The other three members of Sunday's officiating crew - referees Shayne Hayne, Brett Suttor and sideline official Jeff Younis - were all retained, with the trio to again work alongside each other in Monday night's Cronulla-South Sydney clash at Toyota Park.
