Podcast: Discussion on the disciplinary and big interview with Ryan Brierley

Ryan Brierley on the Love Rugby League podcast

Ryan Brierley is in the Love Rugby League hot seat after another rugby league week dominated by the disciplinary.

Editor James Gordon and reporter Josh McAllister go over the big talking points, give their views on Luke Gale’s red card and ban as well as the good, the bad and the ugly for this week.

And in the feature interview, George Riley catches up with Ryan Brierley – who opens up on his traumatic experience at Toronto and his emotional homecoming with Salford.

The good

Wigan full-back Jai Field has caught the eye at both ends of the pitch in the opening rounds of this season.

His efforts against Leeds last weekend make him this week’s selection for ‘the good’ of rugby league.

The predatory hunt down of Rhinos flier Liam Tindall a highlight, as he scooped maximum Man of Steel points for the second week running.

The bad

Storm Eunice (and other associated storms) didn’t just claim three Championship matches as its victim.

Considerable damage was caused to Barrow Raiders’ ground, with club figures estimating a six-figure cost.

We hope that the Raiders can get things sorted quickly, having seen the club revitalised in the past couple of years at the heart of their community.

The ugly

It has to be the fall out surrounding the RFL disciplinary process.

Whatever your opinion of the Luke Gale red card, discussion surrounding the disciplinary has dominated rugby league this week.

Ultimately, without the actions of the players in the first place, these discussions don’t happen.

It’s a war of wills that will hopefully die out in the coming weeks.
