Is it just me or is the game becoming very scrappy to watch, its just tacklers try to rip attackers arms or legs out the sockets then wait for the ref to shout held then put the player on the floor, then when the ref shouts move the defence stands up by pushing the attacker who in turn is pushing the defender whilst trying to get up quicker than the defender, then the attacker plays the ball whilst pushing the defender who is in turn pushing his knees into the attacker, then a hit up and it starts again!
The tackles are getting as slow as a union ruck!

Or is it just me!
It seems that there's just legs and arms everywhere on the tv screen!

Just a little moan!

I like a bit of wrestle and niggle, win the collision, move the ball show some imagination! A thousand ptbs all going the same smooth way, 1.3 seconds every time would be boring.
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

Which is exactly what J. Flatman waxes lyrical about in todays sport magazine - and I agree with him. A rugby player/team should experience play in all weathers
