I really think you are over thinking this.  I am not talking about the crowd, we discuss that topic enough on here.

But on the pitch.  I would argue that the length of the field tries Warrington are scoring today are far more entertaining for the neutral than a last minute thriller.

Not for me Dunny, I want to watch good contests with the result in doubt as my as possible. I was one of those mentioned who left this game for a while.

Did the official say that Thewlis did a Swan Dive, missed that.

Had the officials agreed with you that Connor shoved him into the hoardings then he would obviously have been in the bin at least.

But, like me, they decided he didn't.

But he is now anyhoo.

So Thewlis pushes Conner in the face weren’t Wire fans calling for this to be penalised when Knowles did it to him. 

I mean you could watch it and see it's very very different. Thewlis was prone with Connor on top roughing him up. Literally zero like that incident.

Leeds fan being.... 

Well, we can all play that game. 

When did you last see Leeds fans throwing bottles and glasses on the pitch ? Name me one game.

Connor really is such a liability. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wind up merchant with thinner skin

That's the really weird thing. If you play that game you really have to expect for others to give it back. As a result you are likely to be fighting a losing battle with several players doing it back to you for 80 minutes. If you can't deal with that and consistently come off worse and be detrimental to your team then it's really not the thing for you.

Conner is slowing both PTBs down in frustration both players push out and catch him in the face. Pretty similar for me.

The chat was about attracting new fans.  My point is the fantastic tries scored would be a good start. And arguably much better than a close game would provide.

Obviously a close game with loads of great tries would be fantastic - but, as I say, I think we expect too much sometimes.  Neutrals just want to see quality and exciting play.

Thaler.

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

I didn't suggest you did. I was referring to your classless post.

Then he’s offside forward pass wouldn’t come into it. 

I cannot remember an offside given for a player recieving a pass who is already in front of the passer when the ball is delivered, albeit it is the correct call.

I'm not gonna debate the incident from weeks ago again mate. But Thewlis did nowt wrong in that incident 

As far as I'm concerned he was fouled twice and should have been given two penalties. 4 points.

You're getting your licence fee's worth if Ben Thaler saying 'just slow it down, slow. slow, slow ' is your entertainment of choice.

Hasn't there only been a couple of VR decisions? And a bucket full of fantastic tries?

Not often I disagree with you but Connor was hardly roughing him up. Certainly holding him down too long but Thewlis caught him in the face with his hand.

Not supposed to take the law into your own hands, both in the bin for me.

On a par with your classless fans then.

  • Wide scoreline: uncompetitive blowouts like this are a DISASTER for the game.
  • Close scoreline: dour slogs like this are a DISASTER for the game.
  • Amazingly skilful try: poor defending is a DISASTER for the game.
  • Solid defence: the attacking side are clueless and this is a DISASTER for the game.
  • The Ref calls it right: he should have checked with the video referee and this is a DISASTER for the game.
  • The Ref checks with the video referee: why can't he call it himself and this is a DISASTER for the game.

And so on until the Heat Death of the Universe.

You're right Dave. I was just joking based on that 2-minute cameo of his. Though if it had carried on much longer I might have forgotten the tries / turned off the game.

Watch it again mate, he had already attacked Thewliss' head when he was in the floor. Not masses in it, but as much as Thewlis' response maybe. I expect the ref would judge that as 6 of one and told them to play on. 

I wasn't genuinely appealing for a double penalty BTW 🤣

I've enjoyed both semis.

Some outstanding rugby from Wigan and Warrington.
