I haven't seen it, but I don't think anything that was said will bother him. He has a vision and he intends to achieve it. I hope he does. It will be great for the game.

So what was the problem tonight. Ok, a Widnes try should have been disallowed for a dropped ball, but the ref gave it as he saw it. People moan when they go to the video ref and they moan when they don't. I thought (as a neutral) that the officias had a good game tonight.

Oh wait...you're serious?  :blink:

Yes I am. He had a fraction of a second to change direction or stop. Try it yourself, running at full speed, concentrating on looking at a rugby ball. Go on. Do it.

Just watched it on Boots n All and seen the slow mos on this thread. I find it incredible that people expected Gareth Hock, having run full speed to the ball, touched it and knocked on, in wet conditions to suddenly stop or change direction within 3 paces. He would have to be superhuman to do that. A total accident in my view. If it was deliberate as is claimed, then why wasn't he given the full 8 match ban?

Oddly they are bringing in 2x12=3x8 next year to ensure there is something to play for to boost crowds.
However as is being pointed out on this thread again by you good sir, there is already a race for the top eight this season providing something to play for.
How are crowds responding to these exciting games?? Heard the Salford.v.Hull game had an awful crowd.
Sorry to quote you to make a point John, those of us who do attend games find this fascinating but it's not a crowd puller for the floaters, and that should be noted before people get into wishful thinking about next year,

So what will pull the crowds in? I do despair sometimes at the apathy out there amongst supporters. This is an exciting Salford side. Potentially the best for many years. And there are less than 4000 who turn up. I certainly don't think not having a top 8 play off would bring in more. It will be interesting next year with the split to see if that generates more interest.
