Exercise4less at Wigan...

Recommended Posts

So apparently Powells is influence is causing the Cas players to show a lack of respect for officials.

Looks like Wanes influence is a positive one on his players.....

Powell had 2 instances of his players breaching moral standards last year (one didn't hit the headlines). Neither played for the club again. I wonder if Mr Wane will apply the same standards if it means losing his favourite pet thug!

I see whataboutism is alive and well in Calder. Of course, historyand best practice says the club will take action. Who, though, is this favorite pet thug you talk about? I think you should tell us.

In other news, Castleford Tigers have been officially renamed as Castleford Itsnotfair, playing at the Stampfoot Stadium.

For my part I was musing on whether the coach moaning about refs making correct decisions was connected to a player being sin binned for moaning about a correct decision.

Which is 'not meant to come across as taking the moral high ground, more it is reflecting on cause and effect on the pitch.

In pretty much every other way Powell is a model coach and is massively and correctly lauded for it. Cas are a much praised and much loved team. I can see why you are anxious as part of the group likely to be scrapping for 8th, but read more broadly and you will see very wide neutral support for coach and club:

As for the correct course of action, let's wait and see before going and burning any more paediatricians' houses.

If what I'm hearing Is true it's a bigger incident than just Bateman and Mossop. Although Mossop needing 58 stitches is pretty big.

Why wouldn't we comment?  The Cas team have put in some great performances recently as the few Wigan fans left on here have said.

Twitter says Sooty has a broken jaw, there are a few more players involved, complete mess - will be interesting to see who gets out of this alive - Bateman for Aus this summer I think if he can go without a criminal record - allegedly

Yep and I don't know what the truth is - I do hope probably like everyone else that Sutty is cool, Mossop isn't a mess and Bateman still has a future and anyone else that was there is actually OK

 

I would prefer this had not happened but if it has get it out and deal with it quickly please

Surprised the media aren't all over this yet if it's true.

Just been on Talksport news that Manchester Police are investigating an incident at a gym in Wigan on Friday night.

 

Sounds like it's beginning to leak out into the factual world rather than just the Twitter and Facebook rumour one.

I have no idea what has happened. Never-the-less from what I gather whatever happened in a public place, seemed to consist of some sought of affray or assault. Hence it should not be hushed up and should be out in the open whether it consists of the general public or well known people.

 

If the club don't wish to comment or make little comment then that is up to them... for the police and media it should be clearly communicated what the reports are and why investigation.  For the media its a matter if its news worthy enough.

 

Although for the club I would have thought best approach is transparency. Never-the-less that's their choice but surprises me they don't communicate what the incident is and how they plan to deal with it.

The club has issued a statement, as have the police. There was a fight between 2 players, some damage was done to premises, no charges brought and the club are looking into it. Not terribly exciting. I hope that is sufficiently transparent to put people's minds at rest.

pretty simple then, a simple fight between two people whom happen to be Wigan RL players.  Surprised with all the twitter stuff, just shows how people exaggerate.

Quite so, though I doubt it will.

I don't read much on twitter but hasn't it replaced "a bloke in the pub knows someone whose girlfriend was talking to..."?

Oh, and Brett Kenny was spotted in a chippy in Scholes.

At a GYM!

 

RL players have not got the idea of this have they?

 

The idea is to get caught in a fracas outside a bordello in Tucson, captured on camera leaving a low Paris night club with a football wag or two in tow, seen in fisticuffs on the front page of the Sun inside a taxi with Adele, but caught outside a gym in Wigan! What caused it, who should have the running machine first or did someone's towel go missing?

I think there may have been a degree of wishful thinking involved. Even from some people who normally don't like to see bad news about Rugby League.

Wane speaks. Warning:NSFW

I thought that was short for "News shows fighting Warriors" and was somewhat disappointed.

I think your spellchecker is playing up - it replaced "relieved that nothing much out of the ordinary occurred" with "disappointed".

Of course, must get it checked.

 

I think also that "NSFW" should perhaps have been "NSFWBC".

They're tough in Hull. Didn't flinch at the photo of Wane?

Would this be an apt time for the "it's not fair" picture?
