SL player you dislike the most due to them "allegedly" play acting and receiving penalties?


Recommended Posts

Up at the top it has to be Lee Gaskell, the single biggest play acting professional RL player I think I've ever seen.

A close second, Alex Walmsley, throws his arms up and stares at the ref nearly every time he plays the ball.

But special mention to Jack Wellsby, who has unfortunately earned the nickname of "The Milkman" in some areas of social media.

Not far away, Mahe Fonua at Cas, although he did plenty of his antics while at Hull FC.

Any other offers?

 

"When I saw the Pistols and The Clash I realised it didn't seem that difficult, they didn't seem like they could play very well either, so the thing was to form a band then work it out. We didn't even know who was going to play what - we passed around all the instruments until we found what we were comfortable with. I wasn't comfortable with any of them so I became the singer."

Don’t all players throw their arms up in the air wanting a penalty.

Appealing for a penalty should be an immediate penalty against you.

Fonua at Cas is one who continually tries to milk penalties when playing the ball.   He once made 3 carries and got knocked on/didn’t play ball properly yet conned 3 penalties from weak officiating.

Walmsley is a god at walking forward disrupting markers/defenders after playing the ball. He gets away with it constantly.

Wholly agree, Padge.  You are spot on.

Can't remember what I was watching now but it was some sport and I remember a pundit on there trying to defend players doing this in sport in general, his argument being that players do it to make sure the referee is aware an offence has been committed. If a referee has been trained to the correct standard he will be fully aware whether or not something wrong has gone on and it doesn't need a drama queen rolling round on the floor screaming to make him aware of that. What kind of excuse is that? And what kind of example does that set to kids who will be watching that pundit who is supposed to be a respected voice of the sport? Rhetorical questions.

I hate walking off the mark at the PTB. The markers are obliged to interfere and are consequently penalised by a Ref who is cleaning up the PTB.

If the markers don't..........

Thing is we all have seen this behaviour rewarded. As a coach/player- what do you do?

Not fair!

Among the players I mentioned was Mahe Fonua who gained his reputation in this thread while at Hull FC.

So there.
