In Topic: It really is the RFL's fault

Yesterday, 06:28 PM

Directives are sent out to stop this and that every season,they last a couple of rounds at most,then fall by the wayside.

 

Well then both the governing body and the referees need to grow some cojones and implement them.

Problem solved,kick Leeds and Saints out!

 

Whilst that quote is said in jest, I personally think our clubs are the two biggest offenders in the league. It could be solved very easily by a directive from the RFL sent to all clubs with any subsequent offenders sent either into the sin bin or sent off if they don't learn their lesson.


In Topic: Salford apply to RFL to have this Friday's game postponed (merged threads)

Yesterday, 05:51 PM

Leeds played Castleford a few years back on the same weekend as England v Exiles and had 10 players missing. They played kids and actually won, 12-10 or something like that. They didn't ask for a postponements. They got on with it. Teams have an u20s and should use them.

 

Not every club has the resources and development programmes that Leeds have. I agree that Salford need to play some of their U19s but I think my point still stands about clubs cutting the playing roster so thinly that cases like Salford are currently facing may become more likely.


In Topic: General Election 2015 - Poll & Discussion Thread

A remarkably insular one too. I know they're not the issues that win elections, but usually someone at least bothers to express a view on:

- Climate change / the environment
- energy
- what they would do to improve the EU (and other international fora).

 

I'd like to add a serious debate about foreign policy and defence to that list.

Take a spoon of cement Salford and harden the **** up!

It's part of the game. All teams go through a bad run at some point. Get on with it.

 

Whilst I understand your sentiment, this is a clear indication that clubs aren't strong enough in terms of a player base. Clubs have cut the 'A' teams, U21/U23s etc and now don't have enough players in the system in order to mitigate against hard times like Salford are currently facing.
