I'd be staggered if he ends up at Bradford now.

Toronto have flown out to Canada today but Ryan Brierley hasn't. He's been kept in the UK. Read into that what you wish...

One potential issue I see with the amendments is this though. Depending and what falls into the category of being 'in and around' the ruck, surely defenders clearing the ruck could intentionally run in the path of the acting half-back and first receivers?

It says in the amendments the ball carrier should take a step backwards if necessary and won't be penalised. If a defender is legitimately in the ruck they'll be penalised.

I miss away trips with you boys. And I suppose.

How do you figure that to be the case, Mark?

Still need to find a way to stop ball carriers locking limbs of defenders and flopping around on the floor like a beached whale but it's a good start.

Well done the RFL and Steve Ganson. A move that will help clean up the rucks massively while still rewarding ball carriers who win the wrestle. A step forward.

Yes I agree, because they win so many games so comfortably. Won five of their seven games by 10+ points. Good going that.

On the flip side, I think only Saints have won more games by 12+ points than Wakefield since the start of 2017, but I'll have to check up on the facts to be completely certain of that.

And literally, all I said was if they can start winning more of the close games they'll take the next step! They've won two of six games won by a score this year by the way. Brough has played in four of those and they've won one, for reference.

I wasn't criticising them for that one defeat. Before today, they had a 29% win rate in games won by nine points or less. If it was at 50% they'd have made the play-offs in '17 and probably been second in SL this year!

And you've done a great job in getting a group together who will do exactly that, no doubting that. My point is, Tom Johnstone said he wants to win trophies with Wakefield, and if those ambitions want to be realised, edging more of the close games would quickly see that happen!

Of course it would. But imagine where you'd be if that win percentage rate in the close games was substantially higher in '17 and' 18, that's all I've said! I don't understand why everyone is so up in arms about that observation!
