  1. I'll be honest, this is a bold take... I mean, Matau'tia should've been sent off for a punch, that Coote pat back in from the penalty kick to touch was a joke and the decision to penalise Tomkins at the end was interesting. But please, do go on about how Saints didn't get a fair shake. Nevermind, just re-read the OP. Missed the tongue-in-cheek final paragraph. My bad.
  2. Absolutely. Definitely Watts' fault. Cooper's shoulder charge with contact to the head had nothing to do with it.
  3. Castleford have played more games this season than any other team. But do go on about they are cancelling all their games.
  4. Of course no team has ever fielded a weakened team before. Let's not forget that as well as the injuries, Cas' academy system was shut down for Covid reasons, meaning they couldn't call up players. But it was against St. Helen's and, as we know, everyone is terrified of them so of course they just forfeited the game for a laugh.
  5. Even as a Cas fan, this is a good point, well made.
  6. I don't agree with it and I'm not excusing it. I'm pointing out a *possible* reason for it. Like I said, it would be good to have the video ref mic'd up so we could understand the reasoning. As it is, we'll never know.
  7. The only reason I can think of for giving that is he thought it went backwards off Connor. I don't think it did, but I can't think of any other reason. I really wish Sky would mic up the video ref like the BBC do, so we could hear the reasoning.
  8. Jake Connor has all the talent in the world but ye gods he's difficult to like.
  9. I think the defence has been decent, given the absentees. Attack has been terrible though
  10. My biggest issue with the Fages try is the way he jumped up and screamed his delight like he'd just scored a worldie. Would've preferred to see him just get up and walk back. Nothing to be proud of in scoring that.
  11. Weird that. I thought the comms in the first were from the Salford video team. Strange how perspectives can be so different.
  12. The one-on-one ball steal, the ref shouted held just before the strip. Unfortunate for Salford, but the ref has to shout held at some point and once he had the steal was illegal. The trip for Watts' try, I thought that at first. On replay it looked like incidental contact - certainly didn't see anything that would overturn the try. As an aside, when did drop goals for conversions become a thing again? I have a distinct memory of a Cas player doing that several years ago and it got waved away and he was told they couldn't do that any more. Not complaining, just interested.
  13. I think you are about 7 years late for this... For me, as a Cas fan, I kind of expect us to be competing for honours now, rather than just hoping against relegation.
