  1. Players across all clubs are meant to be observing strict protocols, some are treating those protocols more serious than others.
  2. Agreed, it seems like the Trinity players have all been worshipping at the Church of the Poisoned Mind but Karma will hopefully catch up to those responsible unless they really want to hurt me!
  3. Wakefield will pretty much have their first choice 13 on the field and a decent bench however I can’t see past the heavy defeat Wigan 42 - 6
  4. I’m guessing Fury will hit n run all night and stink the place out as he did against Wladimir Klitschko. That may get him the win but if he wins that way it’s a pretty hollow one.
  5. I can’t see Robinson getting the big chair yet! He hasn’t had a long coaching apprenticeship, maybe just 3 years with some of that being at Senior Academy level. I can see the club insisting that he stays as an assistant to whoever does get the job and maybe next time it’s available he’ll be fully ready. Huddersfield won’t re employ Thorman for the very reason they let him go!
  6. HKR though, haven’t come out of the changing rooms yet, some awful defence
  7. Surprise surprise same situation but Leeds get the penalty! Its the correct decision but highlights how inexperienced refs are influenced by the bigger named clubs
  8. 2nd try I agree but the 1st try they shouldn’t have even been defending it was a penalty to KR
  9. That was a joke decision by the ref, the Leeds player clearly raked the ball out of the KR players hands and it results in 6 points to Leeds Thats just pathetic officiating and undermines the game
  10. Joe Lydon and Jonathan Davis at Full Back must be in contention also Graham Steadman! Lee Jackson is just edged out by Daryl Clarke as the fastest Hooker
  11. Micheal Jackson at Wakefield was the fastest second Row I’ve seen, very closely followed by Rod Reddy the original ‘Rocket’ Bob Lindner at 13
  12. Not a chance! Offiah had a Full next gear that Addo Carr hasn’t got and of course an Ausie would pick another Ausie, they hate the fact that they don’t own every record in Rugby League.
  13. Bit harsh on Leeds that last penalty Lots of teams, in fact nearly all teams don’t put 2 markers in when inside their own 10 metres. It’s not for the ref to tell them they must have 2 markers there.
  14. Jowitt BJB Lyne Tupou Senior/ Johnstone Bailey/ Miller dropped? He’s in terrible form! Hampshire Kopczak Crowther/ K Wood King/ Navarette Pitts Tanginoa Westerman J Wood Green Gwaze/ Arona Aydin/ Kirmond I count 5 changes through unavailability Don't throw in Ashurst because Tanginoa was the best Trinity player on the park Fifita has been stood down by the club, their choice! Im not sure who the 14 missing could be unless you’re stretching the truth beyond breaking point or making some very weak cases for players not selected. Everybody is dealing with the virus in some way or another, everyone’s preparation is being disrupted.
  15. I admire your positivity WCL but we just got beat by a busted Hull FC who had a number of young kids in the team themselves. Not only that but they haven’t been able to buy a win apart from beating Huddersfield’s Academy team last week. Seriously The Giants literally had 15 fit players for that match and 2 players who’d been ruled out through injury bravely put their hands up to play in that game. Well done Hull FC but Trinity need a new coach and support staff!
  16. Ryan Sutton was the standout Englishman this morning IMO. Williams was great with the boot but between them none of the Canberra playmakers could open the Roosters defence which was just too well organised and committed. Whitehead was solid and looked likely a couple of times without actually ever breaking the line. Bateman was good in defence and kept Cordner in check but he never troubled the Roosters line with his trademark footwork and odd style. The Roosters still look a cut above everyone when the big games come, if they continue in this mood and form they’ll win it for a 3rd time.
  17. Ref going back about 8m and allowing Sts to be a yard offside! Sts are way too good for a very young Giants already but that’s killing any chance of Huddersfield making progress
  18. No try, double movement! no momentum, ball carrying arm hits the ground then lifted and promoted over the line WTF!!
  19. John Wells no one in either code of Rugby who can change direction with no loss of pace than like Grace!!!!!! except maybe Ponga, Papenhausen, Aldo Carr, Tuivasa Sheck, Tom Johnstone, Watene Zelezniak Shaun Johnstone
  20. Disappointing defensive effort from two of the senior players in the team
  21. Yeah I noticed that! Wells is very quick to criticise a young 19 year old for getting a kick wrong but can’t get his own job right to the same degree he demands of the players.
  22. It’s a skinny 10 from the ref and an enthusiastic Sts are borderline offside at almost every tackle. McIntosh, Jake Wardle, Innes Senior, Jon Luke Kirby are all recent Academy produced players that would have played but are unavailable. Louis Senior, Dom Young, Olly Russell, Sam Hewitt, Matty English & Sam Wood are all recent Academy players that are playing. That’s an absolutely superb output from the Youth System at Huddersfield. Let’s not forget older Giants Academy players like McGilvery, Cudjoe & Lawrence. As Barry Mac said in commentary, Clubs have to back their Youth programme with Time, Money, Facilities and equipment instead of paying lip service to it! The game in this country can’t afford not to develop its own players and too many clubs just employ unqualified yes men to take a development role.
  23. I think Hicks has been a bit harsh on Salford on 5 or 6 occasions! There were a couple of hairline 6 again decisions in the first half that got Castleford rolling and ended with a try. The same type of offences haven’t resulted in 6 again for Salford though. The knock by Ackers was actually Richardson losing the ball as he tried to offload and it ended up with Richardson dropping a goal. That ball strip was legal as Matautias ball carrying arm hadn’t made contact with the ground and the strip occurred during the momentum of the tackle. It once again ended with Castleford scoring 6 points.
  24. Apart from the ones I’ve already listed as other than, which players are NOT seen as First Choice alternatives in the team that played yesterday? Are you saying that the team that played yesterday aren’t capable of better than what they served up? Heres the team that beat Warrington 18 - 8 earlier in the season. 12 either played or were fit and available yesterday while Tupou switched to centre to replace Arundel, Gigot replaced Lyne, Kirmond replaced Pitts and Arona came into the team. All three of those are First Choice alternatives to those not selected. In addition Fifita was available but the CEO chose to stand him down. That’s 3 players added to the 12 who were available or played leaving just the two young wingers who replaced Johnstone & BJB. As I said in an earlier post, the injury excuse does not hold up when you look at it. Wakefield 18 Vs 8 Warrington v Yesterday Jowitt - Jowitt Tupou - Croft Lyne - Gigot Arundel - Tupou Johnsstone - Senior Miller - Miller Hampshire - Hampshire Kopczak - Navarrete (Kopczak was Available) K Wood - K Wood Tanginoa - Arona Pitts - Bachelor Ashurst - Ashurst Westerman - Westerman Subs J Wood - Crowther (J Wood was Available) Tangata - Tanginoa (Tangata was Available) Batchelor - Kirmond Navarrete - Green
