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.

Best of a bad job but with Thaler sending everything upto Hicks as the video judge the game will last 2hours 12 minutes. It could be worse, it could be the other way round with the game lasting 3 hours 47 minutes with Bent Haler wanting his time in the spotlight.

I watched Hicks performance, with interest, when Toulouse played Featherstone and I thought he had a very good game. Guess what? Video ref was not available.

It didn't make any difference but they were the Dream Team. Dudson's 'try'? Double movement - never! Lussik grounding the ball short and not moving forward - not a problem. Farrell in one on one ball steal attempt - definite penalty and so on and so on.

I hope, in a sad way, that they get the Grand Final and do exactly the same. Maybe then, things will improve.

Hicks is a far better referee than the rest of them,Tyler should be on the stage he plays to the camera in my opinion and is poorer because of it.
