That was really a dumb move by Maurice Blair.

Reminds me of Chris Houston clapping the referee after getting a yellow card, thus turning it to red.

Good shout but he only received a word from his club IIRC.

I could be wrong though, it has been known.

The match commissioner usually stands in the exact spot where Blair left the field once sin binned.

I'm not sure whether he could have brought it to the ref's attention when it happened but, if he could have, why didn't he?

It was caught very clearly on the coverage. Either that or he was just answering their question on how many times they’d lost to Hull this year

You mean Ginger Lino missed it?

Not surprised Blair is in trouble. He's fortunate it wasn't upgraded to red on the spot.

Obviously his head was on fire. He ran off the pitch gesturing right in front of us. As Ullman says, I rather think Hewer was very lenient giving him just a yellow.

Just watching on telly it looked like Hewer struggled and at times looked lost as what he was doing

Tomkins got a £1000 fine from the RFL suspended until the end of the following season. Wigan also punished Tomkins.

Five games is massively excessive for a one or two fingered salute. I’m not sure fans can get on the moral high ground here either, they were obviously dishing it out to him and he’s reacted back. Hardly the crime of the century. 

When you consider that Morgan Knowles got an overly excessive four game ban for an apparent tip tackle at Catalans earlier this year, a maximum of five games for throwing the bird is ridiculous.

True, hardly the crime of tbe century; that would have attracted a life sentence without parole.  

I realise some players may  never appear on University Challenge, but is there any need for them to show their disappointment  on the field?

Similar to the way that some far east posters air their  disappointment at failing their refs ticket by becoming keyboard refs.

Surely he just has to claim that he was having a bad personal time and someone abused his pet goldfish and he a momentary lapse, no case to answer sorry for wasting your time Mr Blair.

Hey, goldfish abuse should never be underplayed. It's a first-world problem, and should be dealt with compassionately.

This will somewhat weaken Hull KR's campaign against relegation, since Blair is one of their best players.

To be fair, it was a bit harsh of the match commissioner to boo him off the field.

On a more serious note does anyone know if the rules/playing conditions were changed after Tomkins got his fine and no ban for his 2 fingered salute? As 3 - 5 games is crazy really.

Stop carping on about it Jim. You're usually quite koi.

Two parrots were sitting on a perch.

One said to the other " can you smell fish"?

That’s almost as bad as the joke you posted about two goldfish in a tank.
