  1. Some refs have dual roles at the RFL to make it worth working FT for them. Ben Thaler for instance does some development work with the NCL refs for instance
  2. Nothing other than a life ban + assault charges should be the outcone Speedy recover to the ref. Nobody deserves for this to happen to them
  3. So you didn't really need treatment if you ended up leaving....
  4. Yep no problem with that. Strange he wasn't there to begin with if that was the case though
  5. Ratchford replaces Widdop in the squad
  6. So because he conceded a few penalties you believe he was out to get referee through an assault? 😂😂😂
  7. Carney was viewed as deliberate contact as he raised his arm Houston was viewed as accidental contact Even though he hit the ref with much more force There are differences with every case so always open to interpretation.
  8. It's a 9s tournament played every year, and he played in 2012 at 21
  9. He wasn't 16 in 2012, he was 21
  10. Another player who treats representing a country a joke: Austin represented Portugal at the 2012 Cabramatta International Nines. Austin has said, however, that he does not have Portuguese ancestry.[16]The Sydney Morning Herald joked that he qualified "because he had eaten a Portuguese chicken burger".[17]
  11. Or WB doesn't watch enough of SL to make the right decisions. Also as he's only gone to that limit with Cas I'd say it's not been a hinderance
  12. SL clubs agreed to have a second double weekend of fixtures in 2017 for WB's training camp. So I think they've been very generous to the International game - but If WB simply looks to NRL first what's the point in the English clubs trying to help England RL if decent players are just getting snubbed
  13. Only Castleford are affected by the 3 player rule so there would be options elsewhere. The rule was a concession by the SL clubs as there's no free weekend - it could have actually been fitted in but the free weekend was built in for the Dubai training camp that didn't happen
  14. Maybe he just wasn't offended. Not that it should matter. If true Carney should receive a very long ban
