Really tough game and we'll one to the Rams for breaking the hoodoo.

Thought the work rate of all the forwards was outstanding tonight,

Great to get off to a winning start.

The basic problem is, and it has always been, if the ref penalises everything then the game will never get going, if the ref allows the gam to flow he will be in trouble for not penalising.

Do you want penalties or rugby, its your choice.

Absolutely right. I reffed a junior rugby union game yesterday, a fast open game of rugby, end to end stuff, reffed it leniently, kept the game going and I had three people tell me I'd missed a penalty. I hadn't even missed it, I'd just let it go. And then people were saying what a good game it was to watch. I could have given 50 penalties if I'd really wanted to, as rucks and mauls are full of penalties. And League is no different with joke scrums, persistent laying on, offside at the PTB etc.. As Padge says, do you want penalties or a game?

Good news for all concerned and pleased we've got him this year.


Will be joining ex-Rams Anthony England, Liam Finn and Steve Crossley in SL. Good to see young English players progressing ahead of ageing Aussies

Was very surprised at 1300 gate. They did open a second gate, I went to the office bought my ticket and was inside in 5 minutes. Agree it can't have cost much to open a second gate but hindsight is an easy thing.

Oxfords game reckon 3-400 as it looks like being mostly reserves.

London won't bring any, so 5-600 would be my guess

We shouldn't r switch the gMe as Leigh are full time and we are part time. Our players would be playing off the back of a day at work so would have even less chance of winning.
