Tautai's three game ban

Post by wall_of_voodoo » Mon Mar 11, 2019 5:02 pm

Wigan prop Taulima Tautai has been banned by the Rugby Football League for "other contrary behaviour" in Friday's Super League defeat by Huddersfield.

I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

We never lose any games
We just don't win them (always the refs fault anyway)

other contrary behaviour??

So not the very harsh sin bin?

If two people throw you down like the did to tautai you legs naturally come up.

Did he questions the refs integrity?
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

support verb [ (ENCOURAGE)

"to agree with and give encouragement to someone or something because you want him, her, or it to succeed"

Stinks! It was an accident there is no way he could even see if there was someone near his feet because of the player who was lying over his face.

What about the shoulder charge on Manfredi?? We didn’t even get a penalty!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

The slow motion is pretty damning. There is a definite pause between Tautai going onto his back and kicking out. It didn't look good at the time and he did make contact with the face. However, three matches is a bit harsh. Possibly they took into account the late near-shoulder charge on the kicker earlier in the match.
He was charging around looking for aggravation all the time he was on before the sin-binning.

I said to my wife on Friday he was lucky not to get a straight red so the ban isn’t a surprise
