HI,JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT I WAS APPAULED THAT NO ACTION WAS TAKEN
AGAINST THE ROOSTERS AND FREDDY SHOULD HANG HIS HEAD IN SHAME.
BAR HUM BUG IF I WANT TO TAKE MY KIDS AND WATCH FOWL PLAY LEAGUE SHOULD ACT STRAIGHT AWAY AND NOT SIT ON ITS HANDS
its rugby league not netball.
I am sure that a good hard game of league or any other sport is far better than any dirty tactics. Lets see a good game as was the case between Eels and Dogs.
Not doing anything about dirty play will only make things worse for the young future players who then belive that they will get away with these types of tactics.
Good on you Ron, I will back your comments.
Matt, There are more injuries in Netball than league except they are not caused through dirty play!!
