There was certainly a lot of controversy at last night’s NRL Grand Final, but as the referee fallout stole the show, there was an extra layer of drama simmering under the surface of the evening.
In the week leading up to the final match of the season, sports presenter Erin Molan has been the subject of abhorrent trolling because she is apparently “feuding” with former player Andrew Johns who finds her “difficult to work with.”
Last night, fans noticed her absence from the core coverage of the night, turning to Google in droves to ask: Where’s Erin Molan?
Sidenote: Here’s the most awkward thing that happened on TV during last night’s coverage. Post continues after video.
Channel Nine spent about 12 hours broadcasting yesterday, and Johns and Molan never had to so much as eyeball each other. They had very different roles during the day.
Although the broadcaster has since confirmed to Mamamia that that is comparable to recent years, fans still noticed the distance between them.
