I unfortunately missed the one game it appears was worth the while watching this weekend, Catalans V Hull, although Sheffield to their credit did try to compete.
Sadly as far as Huddersfield and their NON-committed performance went ( yet again) which I would propose is the main reason that this team is so poorly supported, as the fans there are so fed up of such inept showings from them whenever any game has a prominence around it, they just always seem to produce such rubbish as they did yesterday whenever there is something at stake.
And tonight for only the second time I can recall I have switched off a match well before it ended, this in two consecutive matches on TWO consecutive day's!
I apologise for this rant but in all honesty this CC competition is doing far more harm than good for the Game of Rugby League and I am more certain than ever that it has by far surpassed it's sell-by date and should be taken from the shelves.
I did manage into the second half yesterday, but tonight it got to 22 nil, less than a minute a point, when I switched off, shocking is ther best that I could rate both of those matches.
I switched yesterday from the C/Cup to the NRL to watch Canterbury V Melbourne, which Canterbury won 39- nil!
But even though there was such a margin between the sides involved there was throughout a very well contested and competitive match on show, with some fabulous HARD-EARNED tries being scored, sadly that cannot be even contemplated in the CC game I saw and this is not good at all for our game, so I believe that the C/Cup should now be played for between the lower divisions with the S/L clubs confined to S/L and its G/Final, it is the only way forward for a competition that no longer , for me, is even worthwhile staging in its present form, when even two of our top sides cannot produce a decent match in the comp then something surely must be wrong with it.
