Here we go again with some idiot comparing amateur rugby to Super League. I used to coach an under 14s team and it can be a nightmare trying to control parents. It would be good if we had stewards and security like they do at SL but we don't and amateur clubs work hard to make their grounds a safe place for players and spectators alike.
As for not playing 16 year olds what do you suggest, do you say you can only play first team rugby if you're over 18 built like a brick sh**house and can fight. Or do you say you're only 16 but have played rugby since you were a kid, never miss training and are good enough to be in the first team so I'm not going to deny you that just because of your age. What about the young TJ are we going to say they have to be over 16 too ? Where do you stop ?
I was at this game yesterday and neither Warriors or Mayfield did themselves any favours. Mayfield players instigated the trouble but the young Hunslet kid you're talking about certainly seemed to give as much as he got so I wouldn't be unduly worried about him. Mayfields tall lad the number 6 had been itching for it throughout the game and Warriors number 6 was just as bad. Warriors officials could have done nothing to stop the lads father running on, I talk from experience when I say you have to have eyes in the back of your head, he was only on for a minute and didn't touch anyone from what I could see,
but once a spectator enters the field of play, the ref has little option than to abandon the game. It was a shame because it had been a good game up until then with Warriors I thought the far better team.
firstly iam not an idiot ???????? and iam sure mr lowes will deal with it in the proper way and if iam not mistaken didnt this happen a few years ago at hunslet against the same team ?oh yes it did and it was not hunslets fault it was the ref again ? iam sure they got booted out of the leauge for some thing same as this ? can you remember this or again was this the refs fault ? iam not here to argue or get called names iam here to give my views and if you dont like my views dont come on the site have a great day tally ho my friend !!!
