I agree Ablett should have been sent off and the Bailey incident was a penalty, nothing more. Rob Burrow takes high shots every game (he took two head shots last night), he doesn't whinge, just picks himself up and gets on with the game. It seems that because he is small it's just accepted. There were a lot of issues with Ganson last night, for both teams, why does he suddenly start to implement the offside law 60 minutes into the game when he has completely ignored it up til then??!

Don't forget that Clarkson knocked on in the act of scoring Leeds first try - why Ganson didn't go to the screen is beyond me. What is more, this aside, Leeds would not have scored in a month of Sundays but for the Coley sinbinning which again was beyond me.

the shocking thing about ganson was he lost his temper!! refs should not get angry at players he lost it when he binned coley and if he is a man he should apologise.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

well seeing as Im still here,
Id just like to clarify, after another towering display, this time as video referee,

He is as incompetent as a 9 bob note.

Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.

Ganson made suspect calls for oth teams not just Leeds. And he never looks acros the line to see if anyone is offside.

Spot on there

From my point of view, I would have sent Ablett off, wouldn't have sent off Bailey (but I didn't notice the knee that everyone else seems to have), and I was on my way back from the shop when the Wigan player was binned so can't comment on that.

I also noticed a wigan player knocking the ball into touch and Leeds getting penalised for it and another incident that went wigan's way unfairly (but 2 days ;ater can't remember what it was)

Season so far then -

Normal League matches
Leeds 0-2 Wigan

Knockout matches
Leeds 1-0 Wigan


See you in the playoffs!

Yes coleys sinbinning was wrong but if were gonna go through the game with a fine toothed comb he should have been in the bin in the first half. When leuluai was looking to offload to webb on the wigan line and coley was holding webb back off the ball that is a mandatory sinbinning surely. He eventually got his ten minutes, just a bit later than he deserved it. As for the clarkson try..............that's why you are a certified lunatic.

Ablett charged with a Grade C - Striking with forearm - reckless - potential ban of 2 - 3 matches.
Bailey - no charge.
J Tomkins - no charge for high tackle on Senior.
Coley - sin bin considered sufficient for 'late challenge' on Burrow huh.gif

Just been told that the Wigan supporters coach was bricked last night by the allotments on St Michael's Lane. Apparently two girls received facial injuries and many other supporters were showered with broken glass. The Police were called and the ambulance service was required to attend to the injured. The supporters were unable to set off back to Wigan until around midnight arriving back at about 1.30am. Just hope the injured girls are OK and not put off from following the club in the future.

I have to say that at every level, from the chief executive, through the coaching staff, the players and now down to the speccies, The Leeds Rhinos is a club that is leaving a bad taste at the moment.

Thugs on the field and thugs off it.

It is about time that the authorities brought them back to earth - some hope!!

This sort of behaviour was condoned by you after the C.C game, why are you bleating now? Is this the same fella that said hopefully something would be thrown at my head? What goes around comes around.

Two wrongs don't make a right - RL does not need this sort of behaviour regardless of which team's supporters are involved. Most Wigan fans didn't condone what happened at the CC game, albeit a lot less serious incident than the damage to the coach which caused injury. Sometimes I think supporters of both sides need to show a bit of common sense and not apply a one-upmanship or revenge mentality with regard to regrettable incidents that have no place in the game.

You do yourself and your credibility no favours with this post, notwithstanding the provocation from BoaB in the past.

Firstly i've got to say i agree with you totally that missile throwing of any sort is unnacceptable in our great game. Secondly i wouldn't seek to differentiate between a brick thrown at a coach or a coin or lighter that could blind someone inside a ground, surely you're not trying to tell me one is worse than the other ? I don't think i've tarnished my credibility by pointing out to "scoop" that not so long ago it was all a big joke to him and that the actions of a minority of your fans have led to a copycat "revenge" attack by some of our undesirables. Lastly, although you state most wigan fans don't condone what happened at the C.C game i didn't see many condemning the idiots at the time. Most seemed to have the "Arsene Wenger" syndrome or simply chose to make light of it on here. It's not acceptable and i never said it was.

Be surprised if even ablett cops a ban after slow mowing it numerous times and freezing it, elbow to upper chest, depends how they view the forearm to the neck/chin

I'll go with 2 games when all things considered

Or nothing at all


Thats covered me bases

A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

Ablett's challenge was no worse than what O'Loughlin got away with on Robinson at Murrayfield so by rights he should only get a caution
