  1. Sky cameras should be on Thaler in his next few games to see if he is as intolerant of verbal abuse...
  2. We'll have to agree to disagree on this one: I feel that refs pick and choose when they are offended by this degree of action. And I feel Cas had a reasonable argument for a penalty their way...
  3. Certainly wasn't being sarcastic - I love rugby league debate! I'm not sure he'd already blown for interference - and besides, cant he ping a player for the worst offence at the tackle e.g. even if he had already blown for the interference he could override it with the aggressive actions by Bateman?
  4. But, for a knock on, don't we only judge on the "first bounce" - everything after that is open play?
  5. Fair enough, calling me on my vocabulary - but by your own admission, IT WAS A FOUL - so why didn't Cas get the penalty?
  6. The ball travelled backwards?
  7. Bateman belted the guy on the top of the head - surely that was the first offence on that whole melee
  8. Confirmation, if needed that he doesn't belong in our game!
  9. No, no! NRL teams play out-of-this-world rugby that our teams in the Northern hemisphere couldn't possibly live with. I thought you'd know that!
  10. ...just that the others are falling into my trap of misinterpreting your 'salesman' comment and latching on to a negative element.
  11. I was baffled when Saints signed Travis Burns and have yet to be convinced otherwise. Defensively, Walsh is suspect but is a class act with ball in hand and has a great kicking game, but i'm still not sure what Burns contributes other than to be a niggly, aggressive mini-McIllorum.
