If Bousqets can get away with potentially lethal thuggery like that in a televised game, god help the poor sods playing in Yorkshire division four.
The RFL has basically offered a green light to every thug/coward up and down the UK to commit potentially tragic acts of thuggery. Theo would've been better off reporting the incident to the police.
Watching that incident and then reading about some of the stuff that goes on in the grassroots of the game, why would any sane and responsible parent direct their kids towards rugby league right now?
please, do me a favour - it was a bad hit end of. Hardly mass genocide ! It was quite mild in comparison some challenges made by the likes of Hock, Morley, Peacock and other such thugs - the Elima hit on Jonny Lomax at the GB a few seasons back was far worse for example...
The main thing is that he learns from his mistake which La Fray will hopefully help him with and of course that Theo is back playing asap
Talk of bringing in the old bill is a joke - grow up mate, it's a mans game, that's why we love it so much !
