    How so like? It's not me who's fuming because someone on the internet questioned your quite obvious and overt manliness.

    Btw, I take you don't do irony, using lolol and very immature little boy on the same post.

    Oh, and I really doubt the Disciplinary will consider anything over 2 game bans for Wire players with Wembley coming up.

    And although Austin has been anonymous against us everytime we've played them this year, I'd rather he be missing for the final.

    I've never been to Cats but know plenty of people who have and not once has anyone said there was an ounce of trouble (I have been to Warrington loads and not seen any either). I've also not seen the game but it appears to be bad tempered. There must be something underlying here.

    Year before last there was a bit of trouble with Saints fans, but the actions of the stewards put it all out of proportion.

    Don't forget the Wire Stewards as well, that didn't go down well a couple of seasons back.

    Some p*ssed-up teenwolfs were trying to cause trouble outside TTWS the other week, chucking beer (well, fruity cider ) at Saints fans as they walked past.

    So you were taking the •••• and nearly got a slap? Then you wonder why? Aye, that's happened to me a few times too.

    And yes, Warrington do have a section of arseholes same as most teams but it's hardly like walking round Milwall's ground in West Ham colours.

    I didn't say it was right but it happened to me more than once, luckily I was a lot quicker than some ••••ed up beer monsters, different times in the 90's though.

    This was in the 80s!

    And yeah, we started legging it - but a number of Saints fans gave the 'wtf do you think you're playing at?' to the bunch of Wire fans, who sort of slunk back.

    The Wire fans say it was caused by Catalans fans throwing bottles and chairs down onto them.

    But the question must be asked: why, when they're winning easily and they've never done the throwing stuff down onto opposition fans before, would they suddenly decide to do this out of the blue?

    Doubt this would make a difference. Pubs close to the ground do a roaring trade for hours before the game. The ‘fans’ would have had every opportunity to get tanked up in advance. And the palaver involved in buying refreshments inside Gilbert Brutus makes it not worth the hassle IMO

    One of the WarringtonRL fan site members is blaming James Child and although that is rubbish, I don't criticise referees generally but Childs does not seem to have the necessary empathy and rapport with players particularly in games which are likely heated meetings.Equally players don't seem to treat him with the respect he needs because of this.On another point there did appear to be a lack of stewards in the area where the trouble was taking place, apparently this is a known flash point and with the apparent record numbers of Warrington fans going, the baking heat, and obvious consumption of alcohol you would have thought there would have been a line of stewards between the lounge area in question and the Warrington so called fans. It might not have stopped the the awful scenes entirely but it might have lessened it. This in no way lessens the responsibility of Warrington to try and do something about their hooligan element, all clubs have problems with this, but it does appear that Warrington have always been the worst and have a much higher proportion of idiots

    The Warrington fans sound just like those poor, misunderstood English football fans:
    “They started it...”
    Too many pathetic justifications, even the Warrington Guardian tries to cover it up a little. One of the videos on there shows someone lashing a beer at one of the Catalans players. At least a few comments on there call these idiots for what they are.

    I watched the game from start to Finnish ,the referee let the game get out of hand by the hooligans in blue all started by hill who should get a lengthy ban but won't,the so called fans should be banned from any future matches they should be easy recognised on camera I've never seen scenes like it at a rugby game to me caused by a referee who should have taken a stance in the first half and sent at least two off

    That’s ridiculous and totally unfair in my opinion. I, too, watched the whole game and Childs was on a hiding to nothing. He sin binned Hill and Macalorum in the first half, he could be repeatedly heard telling players to walk away and he penalised both teams on more than one occasion for questioning his decision. It was a red hot atmosphere played between two very physical, aggressive teams - neither of whose forwards wanted to take a backward step. As for the scenes at the end - if Child’s has finished the game early - some of the Warrington players would have gone into the crowd after the whistle and that could have caused yet more unpleasant scenes. He at least tried to stay calm - you could hear and sense that from his comments which could be clearly heard on TV.

    Couple of posts on here sympathising with Chris Hill, I couldn’t disagree more. He is Warrington’s captain, yet conducts himself like a school ground bully. No respect for the referee, constantly gobbing off, and certainly no respect for the opposition players. The team and to some extent the fans probably follow his appalling example

    I'm still trying to work out what happened

    Th game seems to be a typical escalation of aggression, hard to know who's fault if anyone's individually without watching everything back fully and the fighting numerous times in slow motion. My guess is it's several players escalating the problem

    As for the crowd it's looks ridiculous, why we're wire fans climbing up into that area? Seen claims that chairs were thrown, I'd like to see footage before judging, but even if they did I'm not sure that's the solution

    Hill did a few sneaky things throughout the game, and should get a ban, others for me weren't that bad, but the reaction due to escalation of aggression made them look worse, how high was the final tackle to spark I think all? Didn't look that bad to me but the players were waiting for the blue tooth paper to go off

    Large bans and fines are required

    A genuine question.

    What would have happened if Child had abandoned that game like some of the Warrington players were trying to get him to do?

    Absolutely spot on Saint George.
    Chris Hill needs to look at himself in the mirror if he thinks that his actions are justified.
    He walks around the pitch like he's carrying rolled up rugs under both arms and like he's crapped in his pants.
    He constantly questions the officials in an intimidating manor and tries to bully the opponents.
    Wouldn't mind - but he's a decent player on his day.
    The RLF need to set an example and punish the fool - and the Warrington Club need to fine him and strip him of the captaincy.
