Championship referee Robert Hicks will take over from Steve Ganson as the referee for the Catalans Dragons v Harlequins game on Saturday in France.

Good call by the RFL to drop him.

In other news Wigan Warriors have Phil Bentham who they have yet to win under this season.

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.

How do you know he's been dropped? He might just be injured or unwell?

I am no lover of ganson but to be fair he has been found guilty at this moment in time of.................nothing! I always dispair when someone arrested "on suspicion"(and suspicion is all the police need apparently to arrest someone)has their name dragged through the mud. He is innocent until proven guilty and only then should this story have been released.

I agree.

I would have had Ganson as the Ref for the Final wink.gif

It's fair enough to say he's innocent till proven otherwise but surely the RFL also has to take into account his ability to do what is a tough job. I think it's fair for them to make a judgement that he is perhaps not in the correct frame of mind to do the job. Can you imagine the extra abuse he'll cop? I know it's not a pro level, but a few years ago a local ref here lost his brother in the days leading up to a game but still insisted on reffing. He had a shocker and it was generally accepted that he just wasn't up to it emotionally. Different situation but perhaps a similar concern here.

Well I can't find where it says he's been dropped. The fact he's not refereeing this weekend is obvious but is there anywhere that gives the reason?

Micks turf accountant?
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Locked for the same reason as the last one.

Until the legal process has run its course, please don't start any further threads relating to this matter.

Thanks.
