Result v Batley

What disappointed me was your player Ormsby making gestures to the crowd after twice going into tackles late with his knees, and then doing a silly dance after. Total prat. It's a shame he didn't get what was coming to him instead of Mills. Shame too as he also looked a pretty decent player. He made a great break in the first half.
If you can start to take your chances, defend a bit quicker from dummy half and get your key players back, there's no reason why you can't sneak into the 8.

You cannot condone but you can understand players, especially forwards, loosing it in the heat of the moment. I was also very umimpressed with Ormsby, though. During both fracas he ran in and threw punches whilst shielding himself behind other players. He had no need to join in and his actions looked cowardly from where I stood. Well done to those players that chose to calm thing round rather than get involved.
A wiser ref, of course, would have brought out a yellow card (or two) in the first fracas to just calm things down.
Its interesting to note, though, how we see things the way that we want to see them, depending on team loyalties. My eyes say that Mills was punching in the tackle and that a red card was justified. No doubt a review will provide a more even picture of events than those provided by excited and biased fans, like myself!
