Truely laughable,referee courses are available if you wish to apply.Easier to criticise without knowing the rules or making any effort though isn't it.

there you go old lad, is this not making an effort to ignore a perfectly good try that he has a clear and unobstructed view of??

Only to be followed up with comments about our club after the match...... ask AV what was said but extremely unprofessional

To be fair to Ben, it was a muddy day, and there was enough doubt as to whether an Earthworm was under the ball, stopping its grounding. And his view of the line is obscured because of the ball that is on it.

he actually said he was short of the line....... official decision

Stan Wall did same on your dad at Widnes in '85', your old fellow was only about two foot over on that occasion.

Well yes Gazza, that's true and that's why I'm reluctant to comment on Ben Thaler's fitness to ref, cos I haven't seen too much of him.

However, if I kept making poor decisions, communicated badly or didn't know rules/regs in my job, I would be supported, re-trained, performance managed, disciplined or dismissed!
That's why I wanted to debate the fitness to ref of Ronny Laughton a few weeks back. There's a ref who appears to me at least to make a series of howlers in almost every match I see him in. When that happens when I'm a neutral, it kind of reinforces to me that somethings wrong with that individuals ability to ref at this level and feel confident in making such an observation.

at least it appears to be happening in SL

Mr Thaler and Mr Crashley - arn't we blessed. Rob had better reduce the width of the pitch and we all know about Mr Paranoid and the "doctored photo" He was still on about it last season.


Why 'Mr Crashley'. It is common knowledge that Paul is a lifelong Featherstone fan, and as far as I know still his first team.

As regards the decision for the drop out, in the league game v Cas in 2005, what people forget or do not realise, is that decision was given by the touch judge not Ben Thaler. Also after being slowed down on the video, it was subsequently found to be the correct decision, although by a matter of inches.

When we get a fan of the opposing side, he doesnt care, when we get a Fev lad as ref, he does his best to make sure he cant be accused of bias towards his home town side! <_<

There's nothing doctored about that photo, I can assure everyone of that. Ben made a genuine error in my opinion and as I said at the time we should be looking to increase the use of video technology at games. That would then have been a try no doubt about it.

As some of you might know,Paul Crashley was a regular visitor to the Travs in the early eighties and was well known to the rugby
team. During the early part of his refereeing career he came down to Purston park to referee a cup match i think. At the end of the game
the consensus of opinion was that in trying to show his impartiality he had gone a little bit too far the other way which was fair
enough. He got alot of ribbing for it though after the game. For someone on the casforum to suggest that he might have an influence
on the way the game on saturday is refereed because of his featherstone connections is so wide of the mark as to be moronic and
worthy of the professional attentions of Robin Evans.

What does the match comissioner even do? Are they involved in anything that can actually have any affect on the game?
