Re: Asante

Do they honestly expect us to believe this is a completely unrelated groin injury to the groin injury that has seemingly plagued him forever. He does seem like a nice bloke so I really do hope it turns out well for both him and us but it might be best for us to just wrap it all in. And how would we...

Re: Rugby League

As I said we were lucky with a couple of decisions that went our way, but you do make your own luck. I also agree that a different referee should have been appointed. The gap between the top clubs and the bottom clubs has never been so big as it is now. You may get to a point were Championship club...

Re: Rugby League

Yes a great game, I think Wigan were a bit lucky with a couple of decisions, but our defence is world class and Bevan French and Jai Field are extra special. We were lucky with a couple of decisions, that could have gone the other way. I thought Penrith were very gracious in defeat and especially N...

Re: Rugby League

Leeds is always a hard game for us at CP and so it proved yet again. Mid-afternoon I was wondering if it would be played at all because we had so much a hard rainfall. I know it cut up, but I think it held up quite well all things considered. Not sure why Leed's first yellow was not red under the ne...

Re: Rugby League

Felt sorry for Castleford that the sending off shouldn't have happened. I think RL should adopt the same stance as Rugby Union, were there is a 10 minute period, were there is a revue and the decision is confirmed or the player returns after 10mins. Still Wigan did a professional job and rather wor...

Re: Blue card & sin bins

The deterrent of yellow cards hasn’t been enough - primarily because they are not handed out nearly enough or quite often officials don’t hand them out to players already booked as they don’t want the drama. The way around that is normalising it and telling people you’re doing it within the existin...

Re: Blue card & sin bins

Will this "force" clubs to have a keeper on the bench?

A blue card for a goalkeeper will force teams to choose between putting an outfield player in goal or making a permanent substitution under planned new sin-bin trials. (Telegraph - subscription required)

Re: Blue card & sin bins

The proposed introduction of a 3rd card will make referrees' role harder, but the idea of a sin bin is an improvement. If a player gets a yellow card, there is little enough benefit to the opposition, however a 10mn cooling off for the player & penalty of having 10 v 11 would be a better deterrent....
