NORTH Queensland back-rower Luke O’Donnell has sought assurances from referees boss Robert Finch that he is not being unfairly targeted by officials due to his aggression.O’Donnell held talks with Finch yesterday, at the urging of Cowboys coach Neil Henry, in an attempt to clear the air between the referees and the Test and Origin player, who was penalised three times, marched an extra 10 metres and sin-binned in the space of 80 seconds during the Cowboys’ round-five clash with Wests Tigers.O’Donnell was subsequently suspended for three matches for a grapple tackle on Tigers winger Beau Ryan.O’Donnell revealed yesterday he had phoned Finch to ensure he was not being unfairly treated – but also to clarify that he does not have a problem with the officials.”We had a chat, and we’ve gone over a few things,” O’Donnell said. ”It’s all positive. ”I don’t have a problem with referees and he’s assured me they don’t have a problem with me … It was good to have a chat with him. I know everyone’s moving forward.”Glenn Jackson
