    I don't think it is just the disciplinary process that is a disgrace, it is the RFL in its entirety. What we saw on Saturday was the the worst I recall seeing in 55 years of watching the sport. Two teams completely out of control, and given the level of mayhem that ensued I don't believe any official in charge could have dealt with it - and I include Eric Clay, Mick Naughton and Billy Thompson in that statement. I am amazed, but I shouldn't be, that the RFL has done absolutely nothing in respect of sanctions or punishment against the two clubs involved. Total shambles and I don't think it will be too long before we see a repeat performance somewhere.

    I get the impression they want to take pressure of him and out of the superleague spotlight this weekend. There was always the risk he might over compensate and get really tough on his decision making.

    For me there should be an immediate directive to the clubs on the way they approach an official in the immediate future. It will be interesting to see how Thaler tackles Hill and his Henchmen on Thursday, for our players I dont think its much of a problem and we can include LMS in that.

    I haven't seen anything official, but according to Clarke on Sky Sports website he has been dropped. I usually think Clarke spouts a load of rubbish, but I think he has got this one right.

    I've never gone in for all the conspiracy theories but something is really not right with this shambles. I've also never rated Childs and he's made plenty of mistakes in the past but the way he's been treated is quite honestly shocking. I wouldn't blame him for quitting but what I think would be more appropriate was if all referees made a stand and made all games this week kick off 15 mins late as a show of strength to the RFL.
    Agreed. Think it's disgraceful the way he's been treated & I'm not his biggest fan by any means

    He is right I agree. Typical cop out from the governing body as usual. They aren't fit for purpose

    It really is a farce,the rfl needed to come out and back him and demand the players show more respect for the ref. We all have a moan at the ref from time to time and the be honest they are on a hiding to nothing.Every game the could blow far more penalties than they actually do. IF he had sent players off earlier in the game then we would of had the " he ruined the game " brigade out in force. Back the refs,make teams show more respect,penalise back chatting with a penalty like it used to be dealt with,the players will soon learn and if they don't then ban them for a game or two.

    I'm not a fan of bagging the governing body when clubs go bust or we have system changes.

    But they have been very very weak on this one. The message is clear, if you abuse the ref and have a brawl then the ref is to blame.

    I hope the juniors fully understand they have no responsibility to respect the ref or the game do what the •••• you like, it all the refs fault.

    For balance Child has only refereed 2 Super League matches since May. He's basically become a Championship who gets the off Super League match now

    Perhaps the strangest thing to come out of Edwards disciplinary hearing, he was represented by McNamara and amazingly Stuart Cummings, makes interesting reading on the disciplinary site, basically claims he was not inciting the crowd he was encouraging them to sing the Catalan anthem and was unaware of what was taking place , I didn't have much time for Cummings before this, now I have none whatsoever

    Doesn't Cummings whore himself out for this generally these days - an ex-ref helping players get off on technicalities and the like? Sure I've read about him helping another player out, too.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.
