Won’t he have just the Wigan fans behind him if he’s down the western side.? Wonder if that will influence him?


Well it made no difference with a couple of thousand trinity fans getting on his back when he completely missed Gaskell being taken out off the ball. It had the opposite effect as he then penalised us with no clear offences committed which appeared rather cynical.

I fully expect him to beckon to the Wigan crowd though being a top team.

It speaks volume when fans are more concerned with what the touch judge will give or have influence on rather than the actual ref or the players.

The enjoyment was sucked out of me last week with the inept officiating that I’m actually contemplating if it’s worth going Sunday (though I will).

I blame Smith as well for that he was totally oblivious to what had happened, and just stood there with flag in hand totally unmoved

Am I dreaming or was there a period in recent years when clubs could raise objections against certain officials and veto them from officiating at their games? If there wasn't then there should be.

I was talking to someone from the club earlier on in the season about the hkr match away.When willie watched the tape,think wakey had 3 knocked off forward passes & kr had 2 allowed from forward passes.He asked ganson to watch the tape who admitted all 5 decisions were wrong,are tries ok hkr tries forward when asked what would happen said ref would be dropped following week. when willie asked if that was it, his reply was, if one of your players had a shocker you would drop him the following week. so yes they do ask about decisions but this might explain everyones frustrations

That is likely all they can do but that’s because there’s not enough depth in officials or investment in the infrastructure/training they fall into. I’ve said it before but you get what you pay for and for a professional sport I would dread to think the level of investment we have in the officials and the process behind them. You would think there would be some plans to create a better functioning system.

Just another thing for IMG to sort out and restructure I guess. At least the reigns have been handed to an organisation that probably has a clue how to plan and actually put things in motion.

On another side note, I do hope we keep challenging the officiating and document it after every game for reference. It would certainly build up an accurate picture of whether the fault lies with the officiating or the players discipline on the whole.

Don't think any surgeon would be of use "seeing" that its obvious that Grants' eyes are made of glass.....

Had eye surgery 3 week ago which is still causing me a bit of a problem, officially that's my excuse for not going, but I'm with you on this for the same reason.
I had a op about a year ago on a cataract and it took a good 3 months causing some dryness, used the drops they gave me for infection but later used a dry eye spray that helped endlessly
look after your self pal

Had Laser surgery on both and it was successful, unfortunately after a week I got an infection in the right eye, shouldn't have been a problem I say shouldn't but they gave me the wrong medication which meant I'd to start all over again, the good thing is that by turning the sound off and the picture being blurred I don't get to watch baz and tez and that other dick from Cas :D
