Good luck with that one, remind me how did it pan out last time moving to Salford/Leigh ? :THINK:


I wonder how things may have turned out differently had he not left Castleford. The move to Salford put his family life under strain as he moved away from his wife and child and also removed him from a close support network (both personally and professionally) and he eventually split from his wife. He only rejoined Cas after getting back together with his wife and seemed to be back on track and content again. He's only gone off the rails once more now he has split with her again.

I suppose my point here is that there is more to a rugby player's life than rugby. In Rangi's case, he seems to need his family (wife and children) to keep him focused and in control of his mental health. Once he doesn't have this, he struggles and it leads to the kind of bad decision making that lands him in bother.

Rangi (and anyone else) should be free to go and watch a game of rugby. That's not the issue here. The issue is that he was extremely drunk.
Interestingly, my understanding is that Rangi was punched a number of times before he retaliated and prior to this, although drunk, he was not aggressive or trying to 'start a fight'.
His stupidity was getting drunk, but this is often the symptom of a person's mental health difficulties.

Not like rangi not to get the first one in, that's probably because the bloke didn't have his back to him.
Aye it's a bit stupid getting drunk, I can't imagine anybody in their right mind doing that.

Exactly. Drunken behaviour leads to bad decision-making. If he hadn't been drinking, he probably wouldn't have gone to the Featherstone game.
I have sat alongside many players from other clubs at Cas matches. Not once have any of them been drunk.

So it's just down to him being drunk then, whose faults that then the landlords' what served him.

Sometimes it is nobody's fault.
Chase has mental health issues. Unfortunately these make it difficult for him to make rational decisions.
It's an illness, not something he chooses to suffer from.

Mental health and idiocy argument to a side the biggest thing about chase seems to be where ever he plays the teams struggle, regardless of how good he was at Cas 1st time around they were dwelling at the bottom of the table and favourites for the drop the year he left. Suddenly he was gone and Cas haven't looked back.

Salford were pretty dire with Chase, Leigh looked a better side without him, can't be all a coincidence

So how do you explain Cas this season then?

Granted, they've played much better with Roberts on the pitch than Chase, but they've hardly been bad.

Bulb short of a chandelier but he needs the love. It's all well & good mourning big Tez and going on about the so called RL family after he departed. Some right nice people on here.
