We commented at the game how many times Hull players took a dive as they were getting up to play the ball. I lost count of the times they feigned to play the ball as well and then looked to appeal for us being offside.


Funny that Nicky, we commented the same thing, but it was Wigan doing it, funny old game. Best team won, hope you come to the away fixture and we give you a better game.

Proof that we probably only watch the opposition when it comes to gamesmanship and questionable tactics. It’s creeping in across the game and needs looking at.

No doubt mate. Fans are all pretty one-eyed when it comes to this sort of thing. It's always the other side that's 'miles offside all game' or 'getting away with lying on in the tackle' too. The fact is it's a game wide issue and ALL teams do it. I was merely pointing out that, unfortunately, any team that doesn't is putting themselves at a disadvantage. I'd rather it wasn't the case of course and it's certainly not an attempt to suggest we are any less at fault than other teams. I can't see it changing any time soon though.

I was just watching the NRL trial games between the Storm and the Warriors, and it was very noticeable how the Aussie refs encourage the players to just get on the game; when the ball-carrier barges forward as NK mentioned, they are told to go back and play it on the mark. Yeah, sure, they even have been penalised, but I think this approach works. Like when a tackler is (a bit) in the way in the ruck, the dummy-half will stoop and catch the ball and play om, rather than milking a penalty. Surely keeping the game flowing, without blowing too penalties, whilst still not allowing the players to take the mickey, is what we all want?
