In Topic: Malta vs Belgium - coming to Headingley 21st June

Not sure that is correct as Sammut didn't sign for Workington until late on Thursday evening and the club were too late registering his signature which prevented him from turning out for them on Sunday against the Bulls.

Maybe they were hopeful of being allowed to play him so didn't release him. I'm just going by a conversation with the Malta coach on Friday. Either way, they got the win

A shame that Sammut couldn't get released from his club, but good for them to win without him and that will have been great news for the London-based player that replaced him

Why? Think hitting any prone, defenceless player of similar magnitude. Probably not quite as bad as the Flower one due to the 'out' element but certainly a long ban.

But to Abletts credit he held his temper and didn't throw it (or more likely lost his bottle ;)

When Ablett comes in, you can see Sneyd lift his arms to defend himself. He's not "defenceless". He's also conscious. Nowhere near as bad as punching someone in the head that's unconscious!

Kicking out in the tackle is dangerous too

I imagine I'd lash out if my ankle was in the process of being broken

They had a few French-based players, I believe.

 

Malta were up 34-18 at one point before Belgium fought it back to 34-34. Belgium scored 1 more try than Malta but were let down by the kicks, with Malta getting the vital DG with about 5 minutes left
