    This got through to the keeper and a very low key Facbook announcement. It's almost like they don't want to answer the question "So what will Archer be doing ?"

    Former Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire will overhaul the NRL's referee ranks next season, pushing Tony Archer into the new role of national referees director.

    Former referees boss Greg McCallum broke the news via a Facebook post on Monday, claiming Maguire will step in as a referees coach.

    It means Archer no longer has any input on the appointment of match or video officials each weekend.

    After a year full of controversy and drama over refereeing decisions, the NRL hopes Maguire can clean up the mess.

    He was recently linked to a move to Parramatta after his former club South Sydney stole ex-Eels assistant Peter Gentle to work under Anthony Seibold at Redfern.

    Maguire will be joined by chief video reviewer Bernard Sutton on a three-man panel to appoint referees weekly.
