    It has been mentioned and I am sure Ref's can be influenced, its only human nature and its one of the reasons I tell my players to be nice to the refferees and also try to be as welcoming as I can myself towards them. At the end of the day if you have a group of people screaming abuse at you compared to a group that are been nice, in the heat of the moment who is the more likely to get those 50/50 calls? Also its not a good rep for a team to have when a ref does not want to ref certain teams.

    Not always true I'm afraid.

    I always tried to have a bit of banter with the refs in RL and got on with most, RU refs didn't seem as open to having a joke with or sometimes wouldn't even talk.

    But my point is I played at some intimidating often hostile grounds and even hostile away crowds at our home games, the ref was certainly influenced and didn't like to give decisions against them teams.

    On one occasion while playing away the opposition player dropped the ball, to which the ref picked it up gave it him back and said just play the ball!!!

     More seriously if I were them I would be on to the RFL to try and wangle an invite into the CC.

    Their recent playing record would justify it and the YML have spots open to them.......

    Surely every team from the YML would want to play in the challenge cup if it was just a case of asking to go in.

  3. This could see players not register n not bother playing,

    It might only be a small amount to some people but its the rfl hitting the same people all the time.

    Players n familys are already paying to play and supporting clubs with subs,signing on fees attending games etc now the rfl want to get in on the action and hit the same pots,well it wont be long till them pots dry up and say up yours!!
