#3184663 Championship Shield Match Thread

Posted by RLDave on Today, 10:34 AM

Haven got about 7 players missing today. Wonder which muppet at the RFL thought it would be a good idea to play games on a CC weekend?

What has the CC got to do with it?

Whilst we're on the subject of the challenge cup, did you know Sheffield once beat Wigan.

#3181717 So little use of the sin bin

Posted by RLDave on 24 August 2015 - 10:42 AM

I asked a current super league ref while on my recent match officials course "why do we never see players marched 10m for dissent anymore, is it still in the rule book?"
His reply "yes its still in the rules"
"So why not use it and the sin bin more?"
"What you need to realise is that rugby is more than a sport now, its a business and decisions like that can cost teams games"
That response totally pee'd me off. It is a sport and if players break the rules they should be punished, if the team suffers its not the refs fault.

That's a pathetic reason not to use the bin. It's the decision of the player and his actions that (should) result in a sin binning, so the ref would be blame free. If it affects the clubs business then they should take it up with the player. The amount of head high tackles I see go unpunished these days is beyond a joke and if that's again to do with business, then that's very alarming that player welfare takes a back seat.

I'm just surprised it took so long for a thread about it to appear.

#3174254 Super 8s - a joke

I did once have a kit kat and a break though so it's hard to know where to draw the line sometimes.

You are Marwan Koukash and I claim my five pounds.

That's you getting sued.

Great to see KC putting his faith in the St Helens youth system.

How's Bowen coming on? :ph34r:

#3147555 Danny Maguire

I think the Rugby gods decided to shine favourably upon Danny Mcguire on this occasion.

#3146198 Tony Smith

Posted by RLDave on 23 June 2015 - 09:20 PM

His last 3 overseas signings Asotasi,Simms and Gidley to come have been poor
Add to that Clarke being way off form has'nt helped

I take it you must've been back to the future to see Gidley playing poorly next year?

#3145555 Time to bring back Great Britain....yaaaaawwwwn!

Posted by RLDave on 22 June 2015 - 09:29 PM

I'd personally love to see Australia v Great Britain and Danny Brough in the halves with Widdop, Also wouldn't mind seeing Daryl Powell coaching that side but that's not really my business is it.

Now that I've mentioned him I think a halves combo of Tomkins and Widdop with Hardaker at full back would be erection-worthy so perhaps home nations will have to be the way.
