My point wasn't about the fairness or not of the officials decisions, it was more about Fax's discipline, which is poor season on season with no improvement in sight.

Yes, that's how I read it and very true even though it's been a constant topic of conversation between coach and players.

In fairness, arguably the biggest asset of our threequarters is their dynamism at the play-the-ball when tackled - Briscoe, Robinson and Taulapapa have all been racking up the penalties in pre-season, they all take a bit of putting down and are very proactive at going for fast play-the-balls so I don't think you'll be the last team to concede a bunch of penalties around the ruck to us.

Absolutely, the term win the penalty comes to mind but it’s more accurate to say win the right to a quick play the ball in this setting and Rovers won the ruck fair and square through their energy and we couldn’t handle it again.

It's blatantly obvious to anyone who's ever tied a bootlace that MUrrell is carrying an extra few pounds this year around his waist. (Fev crowd certainly spotted it! ) It is bound to impact on his fitness and his speed levels although downhill at Batley he will be good! It's loose forward for me to allow for an extra pivot using his hands. To be fair he always has been a good defender and he showed he has still got that.
Fev game showed us the speed around the pivots and we were left chasing shadows with Ridyard who likewise anyone can see has lost a few pounds and really looked in good shape and a few yards quicker for his try.
Bottom line is with the dual reg we can see the difference in physical fitness whether they can play better or not.

Incorrect. The final penalty count as reported by League Express and League Weekly was 10-8 in Fev's favour.


Just watched it again and being a bit sad I counted - was 11-9 to Fev

Penalty counts are often wrong. Easy to forget to write one down.

You don't see them overstated. Always understated.

Ours was 11-9 last week. League Express said 11-8.

You usually find more often than not that the count to each side is not too dissimilar, it just depends on the stage of the game and the area you receive them in. Listening to the Fev game and following on Twitter as I was on nights we seemed to concede quite a few in the first half at times when we were putting pressure on.

Whatever we need to improve in this area.
