Just read on sky sports that a similar thing happen in SL n the team got a fine but when it happened in the NRL the team got a fine n the points deducted the NRL game finished 28-26 not sure of the SL score. Id guess the fact this game was stil in contention will go against salford

the Wire v Bulls game where this happened had almost identical circumstances, so I still expect no more than a fine.

The thing that may make it worse is I think they introduced new processes after the Bulls one so this really shouldnt happen.

Sky said Cas had put in the complaint, after reading this thread probably

I would think it more likely that they learned of it from www.casforum.co.uk, some posters on there are VERY close to the Castleford club.

As always, how can anyone possibly determine the intention? I think the rfl will make an example of us and dock us the two points. I can't honestly say I'd blame them, it's unprofessional at the very least.

If the player entered the field without using the interchange card then IMO Salford as a club have a much stronger case to answer. Players are focusing on the game and want to get on/stay on so you have to give them a little leeway in terms of the process but there is always a member of the dugout staff whose job it is to organise the interchanges. They simply have to get it right. I wonder whether there was one interchange official (the Reserve Ref) or two (often a volunteer from the local society or at SL games could be a reserve TJ). The RR usually notes all the interchanges so there will be some written evidence and maybe video too since it was on Sky.

Some players are less inclined to leave the field when called than others but as professionals they simply have to do it. As an interchange official I've never done a 4 man interchange in one go, but I've done 3 at once quite often and that can be fun.

Largely the system works well and I don't think fans or clubs would want a system that only allowed interchanges at stoppages in play.
