- Not in the same league as Clint Greenshields
- Not as quick as he was when he first came to Leeds
- Poor discipline
- Adds to Catalans already poor disciplinary record

Catalan should change their Dragons name to "Dirties!" Dirtiest team in the SL by a whole mile(and I include Widnes in that!) :rolleyes:
2009 Warrington 25 Hudderfield 16
2010 Warrington 30 Leeds 6
2011 League Leaders Shield Winners
2012 Warrington 35 Leeds 18

Challenge cups and league leaders shields everywhere! We need more silver polish!

Brian Mac hauled Webb off against Wakey when he gifted us a try through his ill-discipline last year, and I think never played again. He should have been put on a plane then. A real bad example of an Aussie taking the place of a local lad. He has nowt to offer Catalans that a young French lad couldn't offer.

True, he's a total liability. I thought they should've stuck with Stacul.

Maybe Wire should get shut of Westwood, following Webb up the pitch for a feud was a stupid as anything I've seen.

I'm no Webb fan by the way, but Westwood should have had a red.

Silly moment from one of Wakey's finest, but he's so much more disciplined than he used to be. He's allowed to chance going to the bin with 9 mins to go when the game is in the bag.

I agree, but Westwood does offer good performances.

Leeds last year always looked better without Webb than with him for me.

As I said, I am no Webb fan. I certainly am not defending Webb. however Westwood was an idiot and was lucky that the ref...

Having seen Hock grab a ref and try and gouge a player over the past few years Im surprised you thought Westwood squaring up to a player who had had a running battle with so stupid.

That said, you do have a point - I wouldnt have been surprised if Westwood did get a red, and I certainly thought they should have got the penalty.
Somebody snapping and starting a fight aftrr 70mins of provocation is hardly a hanging offence though.

I wish I was as thoughtful as you, nice response...... I think Padge was on fishing alert.

Elima,Webb and Westwood were all equally embarassing,as was the 'commentary' again.Five minutes of conversation,as the game was carrying on,before eventually realising that they were all wrong and the touch judge was absolutely right.Then another five minutes of conversation,asking each other what the rules are - you really couldn't make it up.

I agree with CM, there are far too many Aussies/Kiwis in tr Catalans team. There must be a young French lad who can do a better job than Anderson and Millard.

Well said Dave. If Westwood had been sent off, conceded the penalty and Webb had stayed on, I still would have defended Westwood. Webb had it coming to him. It's just a shame Ben didn't get a chance to come back on and do the same to Elima.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Hock is an altogether different level of stupid, but I'm still surprised that people think Benny's some sort of angel. They really aren't that far apart on a regular day. (Not defending the eye gouging in particular mind. That was inexcusable)

as a team i thought catalans were disgraceful, elima and webb appeared to be intent on causing harm to someone, as one poster has already said the dirtiest team i have seen for some time..............
