I thought Thursday was bad, but today’s Game at Warrington has more than matched it masterminded by Mr. Morals!!!! Only downside is we have to face these teams more than twice if we make the playoffs.

If we keep our discipline and don’t let them bully us we should beat them. The only caveat to that is you need a strong ref who doesn’t get bullied. Thaler took no sh*t from the Wolfpack.

I thought the ref was excellent today. Despite the number of cards he showed he was very patient to be honest. Toronto's behaviour looked very familiar. If we play our game, give them no space and keep our discipline, we could get under their skin. I'm looking forward to our games with them.
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.

Their lack of discipline was shocking and it was all self-inflicted. Warrington didn't need to get under their skin. They just took the hits and got on with playing RL. Kay's yellow card was the start of their problems but what followed struck me as a team that is used to bullying other teams and then ultimately going on to win. SL teams are their for a reason and Toronto's rough-house tactics then backfired on them big time. If we can keep our heads when we play them and get them involved in an arm wrestle of a game i can see us winning.

Rowleys ineptitude and lack of tactical discipline was all to evident once more. He only knows one way, sadly.

Question. Was Sims that kind of player at Warrington, or were Dixon and Hopkins under Jukes at Leigh?

Rowley should have been man enough to apologise for that debacle today.

Live on BBC to the nation. Deary Me, at least RFL officiating stood up to Rowleys shenanigans and to that degree, Ben Thaler can be proud he did a splendid job indeed.

Clear evidence if it was ever needed that Rowley will never follow Neil Jukes and coach a team in Super League.

Watching Toronto today was exactly like watching you 3 years ago and even Rowley been interviewed at the end proves what a horrible little grub he is

Judging Toronto on their second half flop and ill discipline is unfair because first half they were brilliant. Played great rugby to watch. Sure, when the going gets tough they need to sort out their discipline, but, for me, the men that lost their heads (Kay, Dixon) were out of their depth and it shows. That's when frustration sets in and silly decisions are made.

With money, it's clear Rowley is building a SL squad, far better than what he built at Leigh. And with those better players his brand of rugby will get them up, where they'll spend again and stay in SL, whilst also entertaining all.
The "thuggary" may be encouraged by Rowley to some degree but he doesn't have enough players he can trust yet. You watch, your Higsons, Dixons, etc etc will all be replaced soon and Rowley's tactics and brand will prevail.
I like the man, regarding his rugby and his confidence - even his bull dog spirit ways. I don't know the man so can't bring myself to dislike him.
And he did say 2nd half discipline was poor, so he's not that arrogant or stupid.

For what it's worth, I was cheering on the Wire and even laughing at Toronto imploding. Commentator even called Toronto "the Canadians" at one point. Ha! It's a bought, SL and NRL team etc to get to SL as fast as possible. Riding all over the history of British RL with 2 fingers shoved up at the likes of your Batleys and Dewsburys etc.
