    Does anyone know what actually sparked it all off? I've no idea but pure guesswork would suggest events on the pitch

    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?

    I do feel sorry for the genuine fans caught up in it,, especially the women and children

    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.

    Not sure but guess it would look very bad on the sport, even worse than what we have

    Wire should have just got on with it, all the running round trying to get players off the pitch made it worse, they only had to pump it out which they eventually did

    I am 100% with you on this he is a disgrace, I am a prop forward fan but the way he tries to throw his weight about pee's me off. Proper players especially the Captain get on with the game no histrionics if you get hit hard you hit back harder but fairly, his constant whining is disgraceful.


    And I wish he'd get to a dental mechanic and get a gum shield that fits instead of rolling that one round his gob all the time.

    Let's see the wonderful Wolves promotions department explain this one, will they be flying the plane again?

    It must be in the Warrington genes. I started watching Saints home and away from about 1965 and Warrington was the place my mates and I liked going least of all because there was always bottles thrown and trouble outside the ground before and after the match. In those days only Hull had a worse reputation and I never went there.

    I think the move from the boulevard, changed the Hull dynamics.

    Been a couple of times in my saints shirt and had no issues.

    Also the mutual affection for Steve Prescott, brings the fans together under a good cause.

    Always felt safe at Wigan. The players maybe schooled in the skeritt mold, but once the game is done the fans have been fine.

    Anyone remember Warrington fans at the semi finals in Bolton last year?

    Proudly waving their Catalan flags.

    Like I said, there won't be any bans that cause any Wire player to miss Wembley - least of all Hill, who seems to have the same immunity as Shirley Temple.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.
