Re: 2024 | Disciplinary : Tue Apr 02, 2024 6:42 am  
The issue with the disciplinary is complete lack of consistency from week to week. Sangare and Smith copped bans this week for offences that were barely penalties.In Sangare case its third time hes been up this season so that could be a factor rather than the actua crime. Ackers and O Connor both got off a couple of weeks ago for far worse tackles! Looking at Wire whilst I can understand the ban was Vaughan tackle any worse than Harry Smith at start of the season.

Game against Wire will be hard enough without more players missing

Fortunately for us Warrington will be missing several forwards. Including Vaughn who is suspended, Vaughn for me is one of the best forwards in the competition.

Agree with all of that. Unfortunately rugby league and rugby union are facing some staggering claims from former players. A substantial amount of these claims are supported by factual medical evidence. The clubs are concerned that the insurance companies will not foot the bill for these claims.
This on the basis that the clubs were grossly negligent in clearly playing people who had suffered major concussions.

Unfortunately we are Leeds and classed as frivolous. We could change either players name by deed poll to Morgan Knowles and see if that helps.

Excellent idea, haven’t taken much notice who is on the disciplinary committee. Someone mentioned Paul Cullen, he was an absolutely gentleman playing the game, on the other hand maybe not.

There is a difference between the evidence linking brain injury to contact sports, which seems pretty compelling and not a shock; and clubs acting negligently. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Rather than litigation maybe benevolent funds should be set up. The point is with disciplinary action; do the bans help protect players from brain injury? Cam Smiths doesn’t and is just weak. Sangare’s made some contact so I can wear that as long is it is consistently applied.

The MRP are doing their best to ruin the game. Smith's ban for you is an absolute joke. Richardson should have been banned for his pathetic dive.

Appeal put in to overturn Smith's Ban. Will it be successful, Will it stay, Will it get extended, place your bets now please.

Lifetime ban, Leeds relegated and HQ bulldozed to make way for a Lidl.
