Sky can keep banging on about 'all the penalties Leeds conceded' but the point is that three of them were in the space of about four tackles. This is a classic Leeds tactic incidentally; once you're on the back foot, concede a few on the trot and make sure opposition gets no momentum.

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.

Another poor decision for the "rip". He just lost it in contact.

Lets hope Ablett and JJB are no where near the England team. The Aussies will wind Ablett up all game. JJB is just 5h1t.

Agree with Ablett - was just thinking he is a one man penalty machine

I honestly cannot remember the last time Leeds scored any points that didn't come from a mistake or penalty.

"After a fatiguing clash against the Bulls" said Eddie, whilst praising Leeds.

Let's not forget they had the longest turn around of all the clubs.

Some of the commentators remarks about Leeds are almost sickly.

On a side note, Sinfield has kicked 71 goals from his last 72 attempts.

I can see a nice 5 year spell in the NFL when he retires.

Nasty tackle from Bailey - deliberate swinging arm to head should be yellow card. That saying Catalan are not averse to a cheap & nasty shot either - tasty second half coming up?

Bailey has real anger issues that goes far beyond been a hard rugby player. He needs help or he will end up in serious trouble when he retires.

Another ref trying to ruin our great game of rugby league. Shame on you Ben Thaler.

Ryan Bailey, definite red card, forearm to the head.
But, that was never a try.

Eh? A shoulder charge to the head that was late?

How could it be anything else?

Completely agree, I've seen much worse go unpunished. It was a penalty but no more than that.
