Rugby League in Queanbeyan

By johnboy - 3 September 2008 10

The ABC brings word of trouble last night at the local Rugby League playoff when the Queanbeyan Kangaroos were shot down in flames by the West Belconnen Warriors 36-4.

The problem being that the hiding was delivered after two Queanbeyan players had been red-carded with another five sin-binned.

The stout hearted yeomanry of Queanbeyan did not take this affront to justice lying down and Referee Robert Moore reportedly needed extra security to escape without retribution.

What’s Your opinion?

Wow, that sounds like a pretty terrible game.

I can imagine how it would have ended up with 5 yellows and 2 reds, given that it is the last game of th season, once things appear lost, and emotions are high, things usually get out of hand.

Judging by the CT report, he tried to calm things down with yellows, but you really can’t let people get away with throwing punches and hitting blokes once you have sent some people to the sin bin as a warning.

Really, if at the end of the day each of the cards was individually warranted, then you can’t fault the ref at all.

Pretty dissapointing scenes after the game too.

Oh come on, please don’t think for one minute that a local finals series could be played wihtout the fabled Westies from West Belconnen????

Besides instead of going on for and against to decide the fourth placed team, the ‘administrators’ decided a three way playoff would work to dtermine the final semi final place earner. Now that’s going to work isn’t it?

p.s Go the Bulls!!!!!

Story from the CT.

Sounds like the Roos were contributing to their own demise…

> With 2 red carded and 5 binned that would leave Quangeroos 6 men on the field. Hardly a fair contest. What caused the mass send off? Did they napalm the refs house and molest his budgie?

It doesn’t say that they were all off at the same time. Must have been a spite filled match.

Agreed Neander.

Seems to me the ref was a little too whistle happy.
