For male pitch invaders, you just set Sam Kerr on them

 

I hadn't seen that before.  A couple of observations from me.

One.  He is first class A, top line knob and we have to discourage people like that coming on the pitch. Taking the soft approach with pitch intruders only emboldens more class A knobs. 

Two, Kerr got booked for it which is weird as that was essentially outside of the scope of the game I would have thought.

There is a three as well.

Because the actual legal law around pitch invasion is so old it doesn't actually list women's sport as something it is possible to invade. The plank on the pitch was, I think, charged with something else but couldn't face the same punishments as someone who, for example, invaded a Chelsea men's match.

And I agree with your first point. It's essentially zero tolerance unless it's a celebration of (say) winning the league and, even then, for safety you'd want opposition players and any home players who didn't want to be involved out of the way.

Agreed, however the tackle is ridiculous, she was clearly a woman and it was just a bit of fun, she wasn’t wielding a knife ffs. 

clearly a woman?  What difference does that make?

Criminal offence to go on to the pitch.

Is it?

Can you point me to the law which specifies this? 

Clearly, this is outside the UK and I'm not sure of the laws there, but inside the UK (afaik) it's only illegal at a designated (association) football match, I.e. not applicable to RL.

I think he would have - the streaker deserved it - man or woman.

You can't just let people break rules as they please - how do you know she didn't have a knife to attack a player....

If she'd done the job properly and got her kit off, it would have been blindingly obvious she didn't have a knife.

Nowt wrong with it, it was a text book tackle, perfect timing and technique and as for it being a woman - well they want equality so i hope that's how he tackles men too.

I presume the laws for entering the field of play and the security companies policy for dealing with pitch invaders are all the same regardless of gender?.

I don't think he was stood square?

Although the tackle was OTT and heavy handed there’s the genuine possibility of numerous copycat incidents disrupting games for social media clicks.

There has been at least three I know of in a few weeks.

The pitch invader at the Raiders game the other night was the fastest pitch invader I’ve ever seen. He sprinted diagonally across the field, jumped the boundary fence, sprinted up the corner ramp and out of the stadium. The security guards around the pitch ignored him.

Spot on John.

If women want equality then it is equality across the board.

Imagine the furore from some of the feminists if the Steward had gently held the streakers hand and said ‘Come on love, let me escort to you the sideline’.  Then the next day the club give the streaker a lovely bunch of flowers for any upset caused.

Play on for me that.

On a serious note, she invaded the pitch, she took that risk knowing it's not allowed. He may have 'tackled' her hard but it wasnt particularly dangerous, he didnt drop her on her head or punch/kick her. She ran at him straight and he took her down. She even said she was sore but no regrets. 

Move on, good stewarding and a warning to other morons who are desperate for twitter likes.

Why would any security guard attempt to tackle or take down a pitch invader now? This guy has being vilified for doing his job and it’s a possibility he could be disciplined or lose his job. Security/stewards are best just to stand back and watch, leave the pitch invaders to do as they please, and keep themselves and their jobs safe.

Good point, she posted on tiktok before it. The desire to get likes and be outlandish etc could just lead to copycats.

I think this is the crux, we've always had pitch invaders but the advent of social media and especially newer versions (Tiktok) could see a big increase in this type of thing trying to get 5 minutes of infamy.

Then there is obviously the protest angle, and how it can be seen as a decent tactic to get attention for their cause. We've seen flares on the pitch, attaching themselves to lamp posts, how long before someone decides to attach themselves to a player?

The relative innocence of a streaker etc might be over as stewards won't be able to presume that this is what they're doing.

Throw in the booze factor and it could become a potential nuisance problem for the NRL.

All that being said the whole event was mostly received with humour amongst both players and fans alike and got a lot of social media attention.

I see at some football matches a few fans have been running onto the pitch, is it a fine over here for doing that and a ban. Or is it up to each individual club. What happened to the lad who went on the pitch at the Leigh/Widnes match ?.

He side stepped 1 player and out ran 2 others so was given a 18 month contract by Leigh.
