  1. Going beyond the joke week in week out as players banned for this and that as rugby league is hard Gladiator game.Unless placed on report by ref think necessary take control back as the game is NOT tick+pass(do enjoy it though)it’s become very clear fluffy carrying clipboard officials killing game.
    As for players constantly asking for penalties with flayling arms it’s a trend that disrespectful to our game(football copybook) so that is being seen by kids in the game who think it’s ok.
    Not very impressed with players feigning injury by way of holding the back of neck at play the ball as poor sportsmanship.
    Stop chipping away at the best sport I love the game as appealing for common sense.
