My mate is a Castleford fan and is convinced that Phil Bentham hates them.

As a Warrington fan I love Ben Thaler

I dont think that you should have 2 refs on the field. I would like SL to follow the NRL with the bunker but as you stated lack of funds is a problem for SL.

It would surely confuse things if international games had two refs on the field. It seems clear to me that English refs are very hard on fumbles (whether they're knocked forward or not) and easy on forward passes, while Australian refs take the opposite line on both incidents. Have you noticed that, or is it just me?

(I've no idea whether it's a hemisphere-thing or not; I expect NZ refs would be the same as Oz, and France the same as England.)
