Sportsbet has tweeted and emailed punters saying it has refunded over $130,000 with bonus bets for those who backed Newcastle or the draw in Saturday night's game.

Kosta Barbarouses scored the only goal of the clash in the 9th minute, but replays showed that three Victory players were offside.

The goal was greenlighted by VAR. 

Football Federation Australia has since revealed that a technical malfunction meant the video ref broadcast feed was partially lost for 30 seconds leading up to the strike.

Victory went on to claim their fourth Championship, ending the Jets' fairytale run which had took them from last season's cellar dwellers to Grand Finalists.

Sportsbet said: The "justice refund" was made because the "early Victory goal was incorrectly awarded after a clear offside was not called".
