  1. The "late hit" on Lomax - the Huddersfield player stood his ground, Lomax initiated contact, good no call. If Rugby League is serious about head injuries, incidents like Matty Lees' high shot on Ashton Goulding needs to be a red card. It was a swinging arm with direct contact to the head.
  2. This is a game Cas should be winning and, in all honesty, *need* to win. So I'll go for a home win.
  3. Apples and oranges. Christianity hasn't been illegal in this country within living memory, homosexuality has.
  4. Lots of people talking about freedom of speech/religion and how everyone is allowed their opinion and so forth. And that is all perfectly true. That being said, if you are objecting to a shirt showing inclusivity towards a historically marginalised population, I'll use my freedom of expression to call you a bigot.
  5. If that was enough evidence to overturn the on field decision, I hope neither you not Liam Moore ever serve on a jury...
  6. How he can be 100% sure there was green to overturn that decision is beyond me. Was it green grass or a shadow? Crazy.
  7. Cas are bang average be fair but Wire haven't been much better. Cas have somehow won 8 of their last 12 so with home field advantage I think they edge it.
  8. I hope he gets the help he needs and I'm glas Cas are going to help him. I also can't envisage a situation where Cas don't resign him if he decides to return to the game.
  9. Shoulder charge by a defender is illegal as it is deemed dangerous. Somehow, shoulder charges from attackers aren't dangerous?
  10. To be fair, Welsby was clearly offside so maybe should've been penalty defence. No Try correct though
  11. If a defender hit an attacker like that it would've been a red
  12. I disagree. Without the on field call and having seen the ball held up with no evidence it was grounded, I think it would've been no try. As things currently stand, there is no point in going to VR for decisions where the ball is at the bottom of a pile like that, because there will never been enough evidence to overturn. Just make the decision and save us all some time.
  13. He's held up, he's held up, he's held up... I can't see the ball...try. I know it's the rules, but that was ridiculous. I hate the on field call.
  14. Because there was contact to the head, albeit a head clash, once he had called it late he had no choice but to produce a card. The problem is it wasn't late.
  15. No, he didn't have time to adjust, and contact to the head could've been avoided had the KR player not ducked into it.
  16. This is getting ridiculous - lesson is duck into tackles and watch players walk.
  17. Marshalled this week. Almost as much fun as doing the run. Even ran the last 500 metres or so with one of the back markers, offering encouragement. Given the heat, I'm glad I didn't run the whole thing!
  18. I'd like to try other ones, but I don't drive so it's difficult getting there. I've done Doncaster once, which was a nive change because it's flat.
  19. I love Park Run. I've been doing it at Thornes Park in Wakefield for about 18 months - this past weekend was my 56th (in addition to a handful of volunteering weeks) and I hate that it is not on this weekend coming! I'm not the fastest - until relatively recently I was the slowest. Started by walking round in just over 52 minutes. Set my PB a few weeks ago by doing a jog-walk-stagger combination at 39:11. You should have seen the celebrations when it was clear I'd got below 40 minutes! And not just from me either. Park Run is one of the most positive things in society right now. Don't know what I'd do without it.
  20. Book 2 at our book club is The Remains of the Day. I kept saying throughout reading it that it was rubbish and I didn't like it, but I read it in about 4 days (some kind of record for me), so it can't have been that bad. The image I had in my head, though, was of Grandpa Simpson and his rambling stories...
  21. We recently started a book club at work. I'm currently reading our first selection - A Handmaid's Tale. I didn't watch it when it was on TV so I had no preconceived ideas about (I didn't even know what it was about!). I'm not sure what to think about it yet (I'm about a third of the way through), other than it is very different from the sci-fi book I usually read!
