Oddly enough we seem more grisly/petulant on the field now that the McClarens aren't playing. Most of it is just whining at the ref but it's a pain to listen to. The petulant acts of Morgan and Murphy have surprised me as those two were well behaved last season. They have nothing to prove and should stick to playing football, which is what they are good at,

So back to the Leiston game....

Murphy was a pillock on Sat and can have no complaints about his red. But for us older ones, we remember the days not so long ago when a double handed shove (albeit a forceful one) would have been a yellow or a finger wag from the ref. These days it's a red all day long

Leiston's 8 was really lucky not to get a 1st half red for kicking out and another one for elbowing. He then scored. So there was plenty going on from both teams and the officials only saw some of it, which, although frustrating, is understandable.

Overall it appears that the bar has been raised this season and that this might be a factor behind the disciplinary problem. I felt that Leiston were on the wind up a bit on Sat but we fell right into their trap. When we played football we were the better team even with ten men.

So time to concentrate on the football lads. Let the refs do the reffing, stop lashing out at snidey opponents and try to look as if you are enjoying the game rather than carping at each other and the officials.

Ps and let's get Braithwaite, Da Costa and Morgan back as soon as! They'll make a big difference to our performances.
