wath brow ref criticism

Recommended Posts

I attended the Wath Brow v Thatto Heath game on Saturday as a neutral.  I enjoyed my visit to Cleator Moor.  Thatto Heath scored a very late try to tie the game. At the end of the game  I was a little disappointed to hear a large number of home supporters soundly booing the ref as he came off.  He had to work the game alone as there were no official touch judges so cut a somewhat lonely figure as he came off.  I thought he did an adequate job overall and did not deserve to be boo-ed off.  What about the 'RESPECT THE REF' campaign that was featured in the match day programme?  No point 'talking the talk' if you don't 'walk the walk'.  I appreciate that emotions get high, but it was not the ref who failed to deal with the bomb that led to the equaliser.

On a lighter note why can I only get XL cheese crisps in west Cumbria?  Now they ARE something to shout about!

I wish the Brow good luck for the rest of the season and I hope to see them in the NCL grand final, presumably at Widnes.  Maybe even against Thatto Heath?

Sorry must disagree about you saying that the ref done a adequate job, in a fixture that was so important to both teams a matured and experienced referee should have been appointed to that fixture, and the ref that was knocked over to the floor by a Thatto player and uncited of a knock on before the bomb, in fact the rule states if that happens it should have been a scrum and feed to Thatto, so to say the ref done a adequate job is rubbish.

I haven't heard about that rule ... what does it actually say in the rule book about it ?

Featherstone more than likely to be the venue for Grand Final and Div 1 promotion play off
