Anyone got a defence for Swan's stamping?

Wonder what will happen at the disciplinary. If he gets a long ban will it
be for WCC games only or extend into Aus SL?

stamping seems to be more in RU when the player try's to pretend he's after
the ball. Swanns attack was pureley malicious which can be seen in any
street fight.
I don't think he'll have a further part to play in the VWCC.

Hey, come on. The way you guys are talking you'd think the St Helens boy
was carted off in a body-bag. Trust me, he'll live. It looked accidental
to me. He was*** onto Swann's foot and in struggling to free
himself Swann knocked the lad. Bad luck on your bloke, but hardly
malicious. Cripes, but didn't Auckland play some pretty football, eh?
Some of that handling was absolutely classic. Pity we can't get them
entry into the English league instead of the Aussie comp. Stacey Jones -
isn't he magic? Made Bobby Goulding look about as threatening as the
Queen Mum, bless her.

Hmmm, you're right. It probably was accidental.

After all decking a young ladd off the ball having two digs with your
legs before ramming your knee into his face on the floor could quite
easily have been an accident.

To be honest till I saw the replay I thought it may have just been a
clash but know having seen it let's face it, it was deliberate...

No arguments with the Goulding point though. But as I can't stand the
guy....

It obviously was.

I'm obviously not a member of "you people" because I don't recall
saying it was a stamp ever.

My amnesia back again or are you seeing things?

I have nothing against Kiwis, only Aussies. The Kiwis on the other
hand seem to believe that the whole world is against them all the
time...and carry on whining about it regardless.

Maybe the French had the right idea :) (That should stir it)

Let's get something straight. He isn't a local lad for me and I'd
rather support a team of Conservative MPs than St Helens so I have no
feelings one way or another for Andy Haigh.

It was a dirty play. Face it, the sun doesn't shine out of Kiwi arse
this time..

A team of Tory MPs against the Aussies. Now I like that idea :-)

Well, your replay must have been better than the one I saw for I
couldn't honestly tell. It looked to me like Swann was trying to get
away and was being held and perhaps stumbled as he tried to free
himself. Maybe it was deliberate but I certainly wouldn't convict and
hang on the evidence I saw. Just how good was YOUR view anyway? You
people initially said it was a stamp. Now you say it was the knee. Is
there a lot of stamping done with that part of the body in the UK, or is
it only visiting Kiwis who do it?

On the TV aspect, I think you Brits probably were stirred up by the
commentary of Stevo and his mate. Talk about over the top! Any time a
local lad was hit by a tackle higher than waist level that pair made it
sound like the Warriors were holding down one of the St Helens lads and
sodomising him. Mind you, the way they played, you probably wouldn't
have to hold 'em down!     :)

Yeah, right, and the Saints lived up to their name, eh? Not one bit of
dubious play all day. Certainly none that Stevo and his fellow one-eyed
mate would have noticed.

Yeah well I reckon Britain and France deserve each other, what with the
chunnel etc you'll probably be part of greater France before too long.
Anyway, I think I'd rather have Australia for company. Britain's let us
down too often.

What, we found you a nice new home down there, don't blame us for the
neighbours,

Back to the point.....

I was a clear knee in the face, Swann was being impeded, but he clearly
aimed a knee at the head.
