Although Rovers comfortably won on Saturday I have to say that there is
little point in introducing the amateur teams. Not so much for the point
scoring and run out for the "professional" side but more with the attitude
of the opposing players. Whereas Wath Brow in the previous game were a
credit to themselves and the amateur game, Leigh MRI were a very poor
advert (and I'm not using the words I should here). Once they had fallen
behind the tactic was obvious, try and seriously injure an opposing player
with ludricous head high "tackles" and dangerous play. The tactic (to a
much lesser degree) if the score was close to try and "rattle" a team into
mistakes could be argued as valid, 30 points down then it is just pathetic
and dangerous. The finale was the Leigh MRI players making extremely rude
gesters to the crowd, intent on causing trouble.
So I have to say that Leigh MRI were extremely poor in their attitude and
went way beyond the "normal" tactics when facing a professional side.
It's my opinion not anyone elses
