My super scientific Masterchef rankings:

Warriors fans have had enough to deal with already this season without the added third team on the field impacting on the results but for once, it hasn’t been an issue exclusively for the New Zealand NRL franchise to have to contend with.  The Daily Telegraph and Fox Sports Stats have uncovered what most of us already knew. There has been at least one game of each of the seven rounds of the NRL so far that has had dubious refereeing decisions, ultimately impacting the final outcome of the 2014 premiership competition.
