We all watch the game and know Cas don't usually play in that way. But it brings home how bad things have got when one of the better attacking sides pulls a stunt like that. Unsurprisingly, folk would prefer they didn't. Still, if it's prodded Ganson into some sort of activity it may be no bad thing.






"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

“Leeds just wander around looking like they’re doing nothing” (Jon Wilkin)

Which rather proves the point I was trying to make doesn't it - if that clip, and the reactions to it, have forced Mr Ganson to accept that there is a problem with the interpretation of this rule, such that even the morally spotless Castleford Tigers will exploit it, then it's served its purpose.

I don't think Shenton will suffer as a result - he's a fine player and an upstanding young man - and if it improves the game for everyone, I'm sure he won't mind taking one for the team. Maybe they'll change the laws and call it the "Shenton Rule," thus guaranteeing him RL immortality long after he's hung up his boots.

:lol: it has a lovely ring to that Sharon's rule






“The bond between the players is something I’ve never had with any other club. Everyone comes into one and we’re all one group. Whenever we get a new signing, everyone just embraces the culture. It’s what I love about this club and I just can’t wait for the journey ahead.”
