If Poore was deserving of a send off then Farrell should have gone with him, however, neither should have walked. It was poor officiating from Hicks who's stupidity finished the game as a contest before it even got going. This was the first ten minutes, the forwards were into each other and Farrell threw a punch at Poore who retaliated, what else is he supposed to do just stand there getting hit.

The cleansing of the game is ruining it as a spectacle, I don't want to see us back where we were in the 70s & 80s but they're taking it too far!

If, as the radio suggested, that Farrell threw the first punch, then Poore has effectively been sent off for throwing a better one. Bizarre.

Yorkshire Radio. Said Poore led with elbow/forearm which Farrell didn't take kindly to, threw a weak punch so Poore retaliated.

Heard Wakey were down to 12 whilst at the game at the KC.

 

I said at the time it would be Poore and somebody suggested Cockayne.

 

Not often I'm right.

yeah lets now hear it from someone who was there, Farrell pushed him away with a hand in the face which was stupid, it was never a punch, Poore flattened him with a good un and regardless of how many minutes are gone, it was a straight red. only one person ruined the game and it was not the official! Hicks did however allow Wakefield to lie all over the ball all day long to slow the game to a standstill, Tomkins was a disgrace with his antics at the play the ball and should have been penalised on several occasions I was embarrassed to be a wigan supporter.

Farrell could have sat down for ten for the push / jab, but Poore was the instigator leading with the elbow in the tackle and then clocking Farrell with a pearler that would only ever result in a send off. Mellars should also have walked for a high forearm shot to Burke off the ball.
