I just think it cheapens a tough and honest game and people who encourage it will be the first to be upset when the sport turns into soccer and respect is a distant memory.


Totally concur with both paragraphs, with the first one being my thoughts too.

Lack off biff has allowed all sorts of negative traits into our sport. Annoying
What's the rumpus, Tom?

The RFL and Super League can change it if they wish. Award a penalty for ungentlemanly conduct.

LMS has been acting the tit for years. It’s hardly a new thing players rubbing heads and howling at mistakes/big tackles.

Unlike LMS though at least Partington has shown the stones to back up his antics and take the next carry.

There’s plenty ways to ‘sort them out’ legally.

Partington ruffled McShane’s hair... after McShane had been penalised for sticking the head on him whilst he was on the floor, which kicked off the aggression. Doubt Powell and the Cas moaners will comment on that though.

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

I suppose Jake Conor is a hard man too.

Let’s be honest, it’s just a little bit pathetic. There seem to be sections of fans who applaud players for cheating (holding arms in tackles etc), faking head tests and acting with a childish lack of respect. Fair enough, doesn’t do it for me though.


You must have missed OP swatting off Liam Watts like he was nothing prior to the knee incident.
