The one which saw the officials 'change the emphasis', as Noble alluded to post match.




My favourite refereeing call was when that ratboy scrum half with the 'tache elbowed Stephen Wild in the face three times and the resulting kickable penalty went to the Crusaders! I'm still baffled by that one.

That's me.  I'm done.

For most of the game Thaler was letting Cru lay on at the tackle as long as they wanted, but penalised Wild (to let Cru score a penalty) as he was actually getting up...there was one period in the match when the Huddersfield ball carriers were on their feet after the tackle and pushed back onto the floor and no penalty...so one decision isnt so clear cut, if Thaler had been reffing evenly throughout then it almost certainly wouldnt have been an issue anyway.


As for comments on our crowds, I wont post my real thoughts for worry of being banned, but there are some people that really havent got a clue what they are talking about.

Giants average crowd is higher than about 7 other SL clubs...

It has shown continuous increase year on year since we rejoined SL (up 111% since 2000, have any other clubs managed that?)

Our game this weekend was the only fixture to show an increase over the corresponding league fixture, and thats for a kick off time that is about as unfriendly as it gets to spectators. (with a full local ARL, Cricket, Soccer, RU programme on a the same time, and of course the usual saturday shopping to be done)

As for cheap/free tickets...show me a club that doesnt do that. Seriously. Any single SL club that doesnt do that.

You odious "$"$&^%&*% cretins.

Oh, and where were the criticisms of Saints last season when, with over 1000 Huddersfield fans making the trip the crowd there was only 6157?
