7-8 Mar: The Betfred Championship Match Thread

Recommended Posts

Toulouse was behind at half time and is only leading Batley Bulldogs 12-8 in the early second half.

This is very strange. Batley has no prominent player other than Shaun Lunt. Toulouse should be thrashing Batley, especially when playing at home.

Personally I agree with all of you that disagree with D/R. I have been totally against it from day 1 and yes my team uses it but I still abhor it. As Wolford posted above last week Bradford played 2 young players from Hull,leaving out 2 promising Bradford players. One of them played for Hull last night.This week the two promising players are back.One of them is on a year long loan from H.K.R. but was left out for one of the Hull lads. I agree with Harry,if that was me I would tell John Kear to stick it and go back to H.K.R and play in the academy if I had to.As anybody against D/R has alluded to it totally skews the League table,clubs are getting more of the share of the monies available,whilst the clubs without D/R get left further behind. It is time the RFL completely scrapped the idea and insisted clubs field their own players.If they can not afford to field 17 players,tough,.It is a farce being able to play 5(is it) players from another club instead of using your own players.

No1 Son is at the match doing the stats for TO, he is spitting bullets. 3 Tries ruled out, the referee is having a mare of a match (from a TO point of view)

That's the unfortunate perception I get too, having watched a fair few TO  home games....they do seem to be massively punished where the opposition is allowed leeway. I can't believe is conscious prejudice but it seems to happen more often than not, and the same applies watching Catalans home games too. Not sure what to make of it but it doesn't seem right.

I am in the fortunate position to be able to watch the whole match on video so I get to analyse (very forensically) each match in detail. To be honest, there are some bizarre decisions i.e. WTF!!! but others tend to be a lot more subtle and borderline. The outcome of which is very much on which side you are supporting.  In the *live* moment something that looks obvious on later reflection looks less so.

Bitching about the result won't change it. 2pts to TO is what gets marked up.

Dewsbury, Widnes and London Broncos next up, which are a much bigger challenge. Then Leigh and Fev to look forward to. Some cracking games coming up.

Glad you see how interesting the next few weeks will be , all your opponents feel exactly the same 

Love Toulouse being part of the Championship

 Evan Hodgson and Keelan Foster were needed for the reserve game mid-week, we don't have enough squad depth so are going to use Dual-reg when needed.

"We used DR because we needed a couple of players for our reserve team" is my new favourite DR excuse of all time.

Whats up with the lads stepping up from the Academy, even first teams in SL have had to do just that in times when they have been affected with a number of injuries, surley stepping up to the Reserves would be acceptable?

An extremely important thread running on TRL about referees and abuse and here are TO fans claiming conspiracy theories about bizarre decisions and disallowed tries. And that after a comfortable win.

That's always s been the case though; conspiracy theories, bias, brown paper packages left for the ref...It was ever thus, though usually over a few pints in the pub rather than social media, but nothing really changes. The biggest problem with referees has always been that, unlike fans, they just don't care who wins.

Its endemic. All refs are against our club is an allegation levelled at referees throughout the game.

A visit to our own clubs forum highlights this perception Mark.

I've given up trying to argue the point. There are those who genuinely believe refs are bent. There are those who don't. I'm kind of opting out of that discussion now cos I believe its daft just as those on t'other side of the argument think i am.

Aye. Fair do's but when these ridiculous theories boil over into the type of bile Mrs. SL Ref is talking about on another thread then the sport has a huge problem.

TO get the VIPs in too pre-match. The new facilities help as well.

I hate dual registration. We have shedloads of players but last week played two Hull players. This week, one of them was in the Hull run on side. We were just getting their players match fit. It stinks.

I don’t like DR but by all accounts both had a real dig so that’s the best the lads can do.  I doubt either really wants to play for another team.

Some French believe in an Anglo-Saxon conspiracy of English refs being biased against them because they're French.

The French complain at every decision against their team.  Just normal.

I would hardly single out the French in that respect. It seems to apply to fans of all RL clubs.

It's just something we all need to think about following on from the abuse thread.

Blaming the ref (I really try to avoid it, but...) makes you look a muppet. That goes for coaches (unforgiveable really) club officials (also unforgiveable) and fans.

Plenty blaming ref today (he got some things wrong) but i wouldn't say on a purpose against Rovers and  he wasn't tackling when Swinton scored but they still blamed the ref.
