whether this has been handled correctly is a different issue, if there have been issues here, they should be investigated - lets not forget only Hetherington has made this claim. It is a distraction on whether there was an offence on field though.
I think I asked this earlier in the thread, does anybody know the process of match reports etc? Will the full report have been compiled, read and discussed by the time of the post-match conference, for example?
Chris Irvine claimed in on BackChat. Not that that adds any credence
How far is it from Huddersfield to Leeds/Bradford airport? (or is Manchester closer?)
The only direct flight on Friday is from Stansted and that's midday.
There is a flight from Southampton on Saturday at 15:25, which will get to PGF at 18:35. Which could make for quite good TV, as they could intercut the match with live updates of the shield being transported from the airport to the ground!
I note in a BBC article he is being tipped for England after excelling in the NRL.
For myself this isn't a good thing. Cooper last year wouldn't be in most peoples top 10 England props, he wasn't anywhere near the best at Wire. Just because he is playing well in the NRL shouldn't mean he should automatically considered for England.
Luke Burgess couldn't get into the Leeds 17 went to the NRL got rave reviews and people were mentioning his name for England selection. If you had mentioned his name for England whilst he was at Leeds people would of laughed at you.
I appreciate the NRL is an overall higher standard, but I don't think it's right that if people play well in the NRL it automatically means they should play for England.
