I see Cas as a ream that will rip Hull to shreds with their ball movement.

Big question for me is how they will deliver on the below statement -

RFL was working with other partners to produce an improved calendar for international competition that will benefit the national team

Who are these partners?

If it's the NRL we could be waiting a while for any international fixtures. If it's the RLIF, could this explain why we haven't seen big Nige for a while. He's been locked away in a dark room talking to himself!

Theres 6 potentially career ending incidents listed here in round 21 of the SL :-

Crossing the road has the potential for life ending consequences, should that be banned as well?

I'm coming into line with other posters who think you are a wind up merchant.

If I find examples of 10 needless career affectling tackles/incidents made in the SL this year, will you eat your words and admit that more needs to be done to reduce it?

You will be lucky to find 10 career ending injuries which came about as a result of illegal play. Infact you will be lucky to find 10 such incidents over the last 20 years.

As someone mentioned above, I suspect there are more such injuries in football, which is virtually a none contact sport nowadays.

Please remember RL is an attritional collision sport. As such it rewards controlled aggression and players are therefore encouraged to take this upto the legal limit. Just watch State of Origin to see evidence of this.

As the game is played by humans sometimes tackles go wrong, punish them yes, but don't hang them out to dry. I agree where the act is done with premeditated deliberate intention, then throw the book at them. This is one area were the judiciary could be stronger IMO.
