Re: Sir Barnes

JP14, what would you suggest to make it a smoother process. When you have 16 Substitutes, 2-4 doctors, 4 water carriers, plus 4 coaches in the Technical Area..it does take some managing.

Re: Why is he not part of our set up????

It would seem to some that the Club cannot do anything right....mistakes have been made and lacking the depth in certain areas. There has been a clear out of players and new players coming in....surely they must be given a chance instead of being beaten down before they have even started with the cl...

Re: Sir Barnes

How is that role a farce? Not the role necessarily, the process, it takes too long in my view. The coach requests a substitution to the 4th official. 4th official lets the ref know via radio, so next time the ball is dead players are then substituted. How farcical is that? :smt017 Why is it farcica...

Re: Why is he not part of our set up????

I am struggling to accept the negativity that appears at times. Tigers had a poor season....accepted. The coaches do not play the matches so the players cannot be fully exempted from their part in the season. Injuries, suspensions and back up in these positions has not been up to the standard that i...

Re: Sir Barnes

Sorry TMO or whatever they call him. When there are big screens the 4th official should bring video "evidence" to the attention of the ref, discuss it as required, but the ref should be the one making the decision. C M-K didn't even seem to look at the screen. Would refs like Barnes or Owens not lo...

Re: Sir Barnes

I assume that is the last domestic game he will officiate in, as he hangs his whistle up after the World Cup. If it is then thank you Sir Barnes, for the part you have played in hundreds of hours of enjoyable rugby and enjoy your retirement :smt041 Talking to him a few weeks ago he was puzzled as h...

Re: Challenge Cup 19/20

It may be a second tier competition but there are quality teams in it which will make it a very competitive tournament. Teams will have to be on their mettle to do well and win this competition.

Re: Geordie up before the beak...three week ban!

Nowhere has it been stated that he swore at the official and only those that were present will know. You can abuse an official with anger and rage without swearing or make insinuating comments. Whatever was said has been included in the match report and a disciplinary hearing was set up. Murphy has ...

Re: Geordie up before the beak...three week ban!

Well, all I can say is Murphs got what he asked for. He must have known he would get a ban. Perhaps you find the total incompetence of the TMO system acceptable then ? This has nothing to do with the TMO system......Murphy has said something out of order to an official and it has been reported. The...

Re: Bodies

There are female physio and conditioning staff in the sport and the Team Manager is Theresa so it cannot be dismissed or taken that they are male references.

Re: Bodies

He is probably using it in a general terminology and could mean, players, coaches, medical, conditioning people to join without giving the specifics away. Have no problem with the term bodies as it will all become apparent in time. May not just be men that are being brought in.

Re: Geordie up before the beak...

Whatever Geordan has said, there are correct channels and processes to deal with any issues. If he has made a insinuating statement to an official, even if it is in the heat of the moment, and the match official includes it in the match report, the RFU will consider it and take the appropriate disci...
