Is it my imagination or have they increased so far this season. The cynic in me has noticed that head knocks seem to be occurring to forwards after they’ve been on the pitch about 20 minutes.....

Don’t point out to Wakey fans that George King pulled that trick on Thursday night after a 30 minute spell and his team being down to 12 men.

But he didn't.

Saints player gets poked in the eye, and its a concussion injury and they get an extra sub, Leeds get two players injured and not got to come back on and lose two subs, this rule needs scrapping as it's being abused.

I didn’t lose last night as I’m not a Catalans fan, but if they are getting called for it every week which looks inevitable then why can’t other teams when it looks obvious? Why is it ok for Catalans to be accused of it but not others?

Would you be having a go at me if I were accusing Catalans or any other club?

What did you hope to achieve with the George King comment?, I know your answer will probably be that you were stimulating debate, but coming out with sarcastic comments like that is surely not the way, and fwiw there has only been one Castleford fan that has accused Catalans of such tricks, so your sarcasm was unnecessary and unwanted.

Possibly so but we have a different view point when it comes to accusing people of cheating.
I have to say I didn't see an obvious collision of heads with King, but I don't instantly accuse him or the club of cheating. When he got up he clearly looked distressed and looked like he'd caught something in the eye.
I'm inclined to believe that it was genuine.
And to be honest he hadn't been on that long. Of all the players to bring off he would have been low down the list.

As for you, you just seem to suddenly have an issue with all things Wakefield. That is a shame as I enjoyed the more constructive discussions.

The thing is I don’t, I’m just genuinely given an opinion on the game and Wakey fans dislike it so much that it has to be an agenda or hatred against them.

Catalans get accused of doing it against Cas....cheating French sods. Catalans get accused of doing it against Hudds....cheating French so and so’s. Wakey get accused of doing it against Catalans.....how dare you Printer you have no concrete proof.

You may disagree but theirs enough their especially timing wise to suggest it was dodgy.

That poke in the eye was an odd one last night. From the replays it was exactly that, an open hand contacting the face with fingers near the eye (accident) It didn't strike me as a concussion. It's interesting how the physios go straight to the head and support it. Is this part of the dupe!
