Worcester coach Dean Ryan has voiced his dismay at the late penalty decision that saw his side lose 20-18 toLondon Irish in the Premiership at Sixways on Saturday.
Ryan said his was "astounded" after Ed Shervington was penalised with four minutes left, allowing Ian Humphreys to slot the winning points for the Exiles.
"For the second week in a row there has been some random refereeing," fumed Ryan after the game.
"There is an element of ill-discipline but I believe we are not getting a fair crack and I was astounded by the award of the last penalty."
Ryan had equally harsh words for his players though, after they failed to build on a strong start.
"At 10-3 up, we were in control of the game and playing to our structural plan," he said.
"They were down to 14 men but our ability to keep sides under pressure is non-existent. We should have gone on to be 20 points up but we failed to nail it.
"We have good footballers in this side but we need maturity as we are undoing all our good work by blowing pressure situations."
Exiles coach Brian Smith conceded they were somewhat fortunate to scrape their first win on the road this term having claimed just one away victory last season.
"I know they'll be disappointed as you hate to lose games in that fashion," he said.
"The teams were evenly matched, it was see-saw stuff and we nicked it at the end but we played with great spirit."
Smith hailed Marland Yarde's two-try effort.
"His finish is lethal and he is as good as there is in the game," said the coach.
"He was finding his feet last season but now he's the real deal. His biggest strength is his willingness to learn but I believe there's still 25 per cent improvement to come."
