Nuff said I guess. I have to admit it looked a bad one, though I can't imagine there was any real intent.

Slightly surprised at McDermott's reaction to be honest. It was a bad tackle, and Paul admitted as such to the committee, but talking about, "deliberately putting someone in a wheelchair" is way over the top in relation to this incident. There isn't, and hasn't been, any suspicion of it being "deliberate" to the best of my knowledge, and the RFL ban would have been much, much longer if the video had given that impression.

I can understand in the heat of the game (I can get carried away at times) but not in the more reflective period afterwards. For Macca to say this, against a player he will have played with at Bradford, and possibly (?) coached at Quins and must know isn't a 'dirty' player is a bit off.
