Re: Thoughts on Head Contact

I'm sure that, in the first game of the season, one of the Hull players was taken off for a HIA using data received from his mouth guard. The commentators mentioned it. Why wasn’t Thompson? It suggests that they are not functioning correctly. How can you make that suggestion without having any info...

Re: Game Sold Out?

Why, when the sold out signs were up, were there still empty seats and a crowd figure of only 24,091, when the capacity is 25,032? Is this another RFL cock up? The actual capacity for the DW is 25,133. But H&S rules that it cannot have a full capacity now. The Good Friday game v St Helens in 20...

Re: Wigan vs Penrith

I’ve not watched it back yet but watching it live l also thought Kade Ellis was absolutely magnificent, never taking a backward step, repeatedly taking the ball into heavy contact without being bullied, and tackling anything that was in reach even when he must have been out on his feet. I also thin...

Re: Wigan vs Penrith

Thought the game highlighted the difference in physicality between SL and the NRL. They were on another level. We also got the "rub of the green" more than I can remember a Wigan side ever getting in 40 years watching the team. That said, Wigan really did dig deep and that alone has to be...

Re: Wigan vs Penrith

Absolutely thrilled we won. The boys did amazing and I think our defence won us that game. We definitely got some favourable decisions from the ref but that’s just the way it goes sometimes. Penrith made some uncharacteristic errors, not kicking on the last for the first 30 mins was strange but thei...

Re: Tanya Arnold on ‘huge’ BBC deal, potential audience & end of Super League Show

Who made the decision for BBC to show at 1730 on Saturday and clash with Sky Sports showing the Premier League?

Re: Stevie Ward to Sue Leeds

Not taking a shot at anything what I was trying to highlight is there are set safety guidelines in the building trade with ppe as law. There is safety ppe for all sports played including headgear but no legislation in place to make this mandatory in adult rugby. What suprises me is the amount of pl...

Re: Stevie Ward to Sue Leeds

[/b] Not the best example. You couldn't sue anyone. He would not be allowed on site without wearing a hard hat and all ppe so building company has fulfilled his duty of care. I would also argue as same sort of scull cap is easily available for rugby players. I see, take a shot at the example, but n...
