Disciplinary

Post by josie andrews » Mon Apr 05, 2021 2:29 pm

Wigan utility Willie Isa being cleared of any charge after being involved in a collision that saw Wakefield winger Tom Johnstone leave the field during their defeat to the Warriors.

Trinity coach Chris Chester said he expected Isa to be banned as a result of the tackle, with Johnstone being unable to return to the field after failing his head injury assessment.

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.

No charges facing Wigan Warriors from Wakefield Trinity win


No Wigan players have been ruled of Friday's Challenge Cup tie with York due to suspensions.

Good.

Never had an issue with Chester but there was obviously nothing in that collision and to call out a player was poor form.

He’s a coach under pressure and he is looking for any excuse.

Chester posted a video on youtube with a tackle on Fafita and screaming for the disiplinary to take action nothing came of that either

We all accept that Chester is worried about his job and I feel for him but surely his incorrect claims bring the game into disrepute and he should be spoken to and/fined ? Powell has tried similar tactics in the past. We can't have coaches trying to influence the decisions of the disciplinary comittee. I'm sure that several big name football managers have been in trouble for similar comments.
