Three match ban


Recommended Posts


But nothing for Mr Magoo?  Not that I'm bothered as we really need Wigan to give Toulouse a good towelling next week. 

Surprising though. 🤔

Looks like pretty dangerous tackling technique to me. Would be easy to do a lot of ankle or knee damage with that

Indeed and that is why people get bans for doing it.

Similar weighted “techniques” have been discussed a fair amount in the NRL lately and coming down heavily on players is the right way to go. 

Very apt wording...

That's a 3 game ban, I can't see how anyone can question it.

Someone will, though.

The sport really needs to stamp out these kind of tackles,can’t really understand how anyone can think 3 games is harsh.

It’s harsh because the RFL are picking on my team again is the real reason

Just noticed this was posted by a Wakefield fan, was he expecting outrage at the ban handed out to his own team player or was he sharing this example of an awfully dangerous bad tackle so we could condemn it too?

Think 3 matches is about right for that. Using a "scissor" technique to trap a player's leg is very dangerous.

Scissor tackle?

Are your eyes painted on?

No. Are you familiar with the action a pair of scissors make?

Yes. It's not a scissor tackle.

Body weight is dropped on the legs, but not in a scissor action.

Have another look, then come back and retract your comment.

Still a shocker of a tackle that deserves the 3 game ban.

Quite possibly.

But it's not a scissor tackle, which is something quite distinct and deliberate, is it?

And the hip drop wasn’t deliberate ?

I don't believe so, no, not at all - but that doesn't change the fact it's a foul action.

I have no issue if you think it was though (well done for reading KTs mind BTW).

What is indisputable though, is that it's not a scissor tackle.

I think what is indisputable is that you really can’t handle any criticism of anything Wakefield,not a good trait to have on a RL discussion forum.

How do you figure that?

I've stated it's a foul action. It deserves a ban I'm sure.

What's not a good trait is to state something blatantly untrue.

It's not a scissor tackle.
