I would have been happy with an even count at the end, look at how he refs it on the tape. The little things that matter, ptb interference, 10m, what he calls to the defence, and where he positions himself. He was bent and working to orders.

Jesus h arkwright. Craig. come and see me. we can work on that paranoid dillusion of yours. I'll charge only "mates rates", it won't cost you a fortune!!!! :lol: :lol:

For most of the season some Fev fans, including me at times have believed that there was an agenda against us as we have been on the wrong end of refereeing displays on many occassions. In reality it's just that the referees are not up to the job. I haven't seen the game on disc yet but if we have got the rub of the green then it's probably one of the only times we have this season so i'll take it.

I agree we might be one or two light if the disciplinary panel go to town on the incidents but if Leigh get to the final they will not have 2 of the players available who started on Thursday.

It was only recently that Fev had a try disallowed when 2 Batley defenders obstructed each other...work that one out. Refs get things wrong. I will agree that maybe Leigh might have had the McNally try allowed had there been no screen; Us fans cannot change anything.Its gone now and the Leigh players need to forget what happened and get their team to the final cos I'm sure it will make a great final with a great atmosphere;

Incorrect play of the ball pulled ONCE in both Sl play off matches tonight so Leigh are now part of an elite club ;)

Just watching a rerun of the game and have this question, we have had a player put on report for tripping, one for kicking out and one i haven't reached yet. If those players are found guilty what will happen to the Leigh player who lead with the elbow to the face? as dangerous if not more so than tripping. A penalty was given so is that it or could the RFL consider further action?

If not then it seems unfair that we have players on report and they don't. The signal against Briggs was for tripping so the ref surely must have seen it so why put it on report?

What about England running in and throwing punches? The ref was a disgrace to be quite blunt. I think Fev need to decide whether they want to play rugby league or wrestle. IN my opinion they hold down more than any other team in the Championship and got away with it through weak refereeing..

Thought it was Karl Harrison posting there for a minute!!

The referee was a pure disgrace by the way for both sides

I think the British game wants to get up to speed with the rest of the world or stay behind by 10 years like they currently are.

Not disagreeing with what you are saying just asking the question using an example. We could have players suspended through incidents put on report where the referee clearly saw what happened yet he didn't put other stuff on report that he saw which was just as bad if not worse.

Fev often hold a player up,turn him then complete the tackle. We score lots of points, have a good defence and more often than not come out on the wrong end of the penlty count (see earlier threads about how harshly we are treated by referees).Funny that when we do lose matches the wrestling debate isn't flagged up as an issue. 3 League leaders titles, one Grand Final and a runners up, i'll take that and if your coach wants to use the same tactics then go for it, if not don't complain just find a way to combat it.

You should always come out on the wrong side of a penalty count because thats how Powell coaches you, he will allow penalties but not QPTB's. Thats why Harrison and others are so p'd off with how you are allowed to do this when the directive to clubs is so different. I hope we get Gnason should we meet again, he will slaughter you and not be afraid of using the bin, whilst most refs hit you then give up. Great tactics if you get away with them as Wigan did in 2011 btw, but you should be penalised every time.

Which just makes us better at playing the margins than Leigh Craig. Quality coaching if you ask me!

I'll bet you wish Leigh were in the same position and able to utilise the same margins. :lol: :lol: :lol:

If I am honest Robin I feel if thats how all coaches coached their teams it would be awful to watch, my fear is that if you are allowed to get away with it again and again thats what coaches will drill pre season. The result will be awful, did you watch the Wakey v Widnes game the other week!!!!

No. I don't watch SL - unless it's free or I can rip it off for nowt, and then I'm not an avid follower of that comp.

We're always going to cencede penalties because we're coached right to the edge of what is/isn't acceptable in the tackle. Rightly so. But in the knowledge that we will be able to defend our line if that is the case. It's part of the game. It always will be. The better coaches will be able to adjust ammend their coaching to suit the changes in the law or approaches from the referees. It's what our lot do so well.

I really do get fed up with people who moan about our tackling technique. The fact is that per game Fev carry out more dominant tackles than anyone else, stopping the opposition dead in their tracks, driving them backwards into the ground. Referees are not going to penalise for that. The knock-on from that is that referees are slower to penalise Fev when we do transgress. Other teams moan about it because they get penalised for taking players straight to ground and then laying all over them thinking they are doing what Fev do but being well short of the mark.Fev have a better tackling technique than two thirds of Superleague clubs. So to all you moaners, shut -up and stoip sucking those sour grapes!

Whats penalised in British is encouraged in Australia.

If you cant get a quick PTB, run harder, win the contact and get a better PTB.
