I thought it was a sending off, but wasn't as dangerous as many others. The Cats are certainly a "physical" side though, and still have a lot of talented players. Glad we don't have to play them again.

Sending off was justified, but was more poor technique and reckless rather intention so a match ban at most I feel. Unlike some Wigan fans I thought the reffing was fine, Catalans are a physical side but Child was lenient for both teams and let the game flow which is all I can ask. Just glad to come away with the win.

Just seen it on the rewind and it was never a sending off.

Thats a good win and i see with only four overseas imports.

With Liam Farrell and Lee Mossop coming through i'm not sure Phil Bails Bailey will get back in the team.

Another good 2 points for us.

Coley's challenge was no worse than Peacocks's on Tomkins in the cup quarter final and Peacock didn't even get a yellow.

In the end a good win against an improving Cats at their place, where we have never done too well in the past.

Bit of a drop off toward the end, but not unexpected when down to 12 men, and a depleted bench through injuries (McIlorum ankle injury early on, followed by Prescott off for a while needing stitches).

As for the sending off, no problem, but on a different day and a different ref who knows what the outcome would have been. And that is the problem, inconstancy. If every time something like this happened it was an automatic red there would be nothing to debate. However, at the moment it seems to be luck of the draw whether you are punished accordingly at the time, or it is left for the disciplinary to deal with retrospectively.

Well I see that Coley has been charged under Law 15.1 (cool.gif for his "high tackle" in this game. I for one, would like to know why this law applies to Coley in this instance but did not apply to Peacock for his reckless high tackle on Tomkins in the Cup quarter final.

If contact to the head is illegal in this instance why was Senior's contact to the head of the other Tomkins with the boot deemed less illegal than an identical incident a week later involving a Castleford player?

The penalties towards the end by Childs I thought was to keep both teams apart.
Their had been quite a few digs and the Cats were a bit like cheap shot merchants. Not seen that before from them but things like treading on hands, kicking ankles etc. There were verbals going on throughout the game. If he hadn't done then there could have been a brawl.
Childs could have done with more help during the game from the VR Bentham. Alas Bentham was as useless at VR as he is on the field.
Until the sending off I thought it was as convincing a win as you'll see.
After Coley went the final score flattered Catalans.
