no, Dorn shouted to the ref, Sinfield then started shouting at Dorn, Dorn was provoked. Imho.
Provocation isnt a great dedence for Sinfield, not that he needs it either.

Try watching it again.While I don't condone Sinfields actions,Dorn certainly said something to Sinfield before contact.He's got a two game ban,as far as I'm concerned,that's it.

i accept he said something, he certainly didnt start the battle of words though. The person who started the debate, and then head butted the otger person would surely struggle to claim provocation?

No one said he had claimed provocation but on the same standing was the attack unprovoked as some claim.

Championship players seem to get worse sentences for less crimes than Sinfield has picked up.    Double standards!!!!


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

You obviously don't read the RL Express every week where they publish offences looked at by the Review Panel, etc, and see how many SL players have - No Charge compared with Championship players who get charged.    A young lad never sent off in his short career put on report for a late high tackle - 3 matches.   You only see what you want to see!!!

Hasn't this been answered before. I'm sure its down to costs to part time players. So championship players will get a lower fine and more games.

So, are all head butts a grade C offence carrying a maximum three games?

Two games and back for the semi will do me!

Definite nudge and wink about the quote from Hetherington earlier:

Leeds Rhinos Chief Executive Gary Hetherington commented, "Unfortunately this is another example of the pattern of inconsistency displayed by the Review Panel of the RFL. Earlier this season, Kris Welham of Hull KR was charged with an unprovoked head butt and received a Grade A charge and no suspension. I can fully appreciate the growing chorus of discontent throughout the game with the performance of the RFL in these matters."

Yeah, right!

We should let the RFL make their judgements on a case-by-case basis in the best interest of each player. We are dealing with human beings being disciplined - we are not issuing out parking fines to anyone who commits for the same parking offence. Correct?

Which is what the RFL do.

Not sure, but it's pretty idiotic and has no place on here.

If that were actually true wouldn't we be more likely to see full-time professionals charged more than semi-professionals.   Comparing the two lists in RLE there are far more "no charge" in the SL one than the Championship list !!

Did you just compare a headbutt during a rugby league game to the murders of 13 innocent people?

Astonishing.

Report the Sutcliffe comment then - instead of winging all over this topic about it.
