I'd let them back, in time.  Although I'd insist that they completed their referees qualification and officiated for over 100 games before I heard their appeal.

this is true,

but it often works out as one for all intents a purposes

 

they should be banned for life though.

Indeed and not just from rugby league either. This is one area where inter-code co-operation would be a good idea. What's the deterrent of a life ban from one rugby code when you can go and be a thug is the other?

Historically any RL bans applied to RU and vice versa not sure if the agreement is still in place or enforceable.

Both players were tried and convicted of assault in the Magistrates Court following the attack on a 19-year-old referee.[/size]

Think that just about ends any defence of these players.

Both the RFU and RFL have upheld bans from the other codes against players trying to register for clubs.  There was one last year if I remember rightly where the RFU upheld a ban, can't remember the details though.

Haha, or let them play on the agreement that refs won't be looking out for their interests...

I think respect is a two way thing.

 

When was the last time you saw a referee or any match official abuse a player, spectator or club official?  As a match official I do not abuse players, spectators or club officials.  I always show the utmost respect for them so what makes anyone think it is ok to abuse me or even physically assault me?

Absolutely!

 

Very good point.
