  1. Fair enough but does 10, 5 ....1 mistakes or obvious penalties let the Referee off with any responsibility towards the game? I'm struggling with the correlation between a Rugby mistake and a Free Pass for the Ref. So often I can't see it in a match.
  2. No. But I'd be surprised if a Ref did do what you suggest. But he can kill a game stone dead. Again and again.
  3. Sometimes we have to admit we have a great spectacle to offer.
  4. Noticed a thread on a cycling forum asking 'Should Cav swallow his pride and retire'? from 2019! Tbf it was a reasonable question a week ago.

No, I'm not overly looking forward to the usual occupants winning in the GF. Again.
  10. Great Game. Fell in /out of love several times during the match. Dont worry 'Winter's coming'. Well Done Warrington.
  11. For me it's the random nature of the decision to penalise. It may well be a perfectly justified penalty but then so were 50% of the previous plays.
