Brandon Smith will miss Melbourne’s next three games after being referred directly to the NRL judiciary for referee dissent.

The Storm hooker called referee Adam Gee a “cheating bastard” during the Storm’s 28-6 loss to Cronulla and was sent to the sin bin.

Smith took issue with Gee’s decision not to award his side a set restart midway through the second half after maintaining Cronulla’s Aiden Tolman had made a second effort in a tackle.

A contrite and forlorn Smith appeared before the NRL judiciary via video link on Tuesday night.
