One of my concerns is that we are now known as an indisciplined team and refs are giving any 50/50 decisions for foul play against us.
If Radford has the players too fired up against his old club, we could we’ll find ourselves playing with 12 or even 11 men again.
You only have to look at the Farsimo and Watts incidents in the KR match to see that Cas are not going to get any benefit of the doubt, especially with the supposed clamp down on head contact.
It’s going to be a very fine balance in aggression with absolute grubs like Connor trying to get players sent off.

This is key for me - discipline.

I know most, if not all, on here are getting frustrated with the ref's calls but we have to look at what we're doing, not what the ref's are doing.

The Watts incident is a prime example. I don't agree it deserved a game ban but I do know one thing, it wasn't necessary at all to leave an elbow out to clip the KR player.

In addition, coaching the wrestle in the tackle has been huge for some clubs with a few even employing a former pro ref to coach out the penalty risks and coach in the delaying tactics. Gamesmanship it may be but it works and changes the momentum of games.

Even Rangi is jumping on the bus & doing his best flow impression…. Stays away from blaming Jake & Cheyse for all the world’s ills though……

I'm not one of those in the Radford out camp, but with Hull, Huddersfield and Wigan being our next 3 games, does he go if we lose the next 3?

Not for me mate.

The Directors of the club made the decision to appoint LR. As a result, they are accountable. They will own the decision to either back or sack.

They will be aware of the restlessness from the supporter base & the results are staring them
In the face.

The fun will start if we are still winless when the players take the pitch vs Toulouse. If we don’t get a convincing win (on our own pitch on April Fool’s Day) and ease the fears of relegation, all hell will break loose. Until then, all this Radford out foolishness is crazy talk.

If Radford goes who would we get?
Would be a cheap option
Henderson?
Orr?
Ward?
None of the above have ever really done anything coaching wise.

Fitness looks the biggest problem the turn style tackling we saw last week in most cases caused by players blowing out of their arses unable to do the basics, Lee as been in super league long enough to get the players fit if he can do this sorry to say it he should be shown the door

He’s had a full pre season to get fitness levels up.
I think it’s more than fitness, but that’s just my opinion.

Whilst fitness is key, having to defend set, after set, after set will tire any team.

Cut the penalties and mistakes and play with the ball more.

Losing? Or not being held to random? Or not wanting beyond 2022?

Radford in, Radford out is less of the issue for me; as others said, if you’re getting pinged for similar things consistently you have to look at your actions sometime.

Richardson is an easy one: on the balance of all games for Cas, is he your starting half. Probably not. JT had a good game last night, that’s true, but is replaceable. Not saying it isn’t a loss.

Thought we had some luck last night early doors. The 40/20 was a blade of grass away on another day that’s out on the full. The obstruction try, I’d have been fuming if that was given against us.

Not picking a side in the argument, see what happens. We have had time for DR and JT because we’ve pretty much known for most of the season.

Even in these few games since he's been back Richardsons defence as improved quite a bit, tbh you can say that about a few players we look like a team that can keep teams out now better than we have for a few years

Sorry Huddersfield were doing a lot of under arm tactics laying on and whilst the ref lets them get away with it they will do it more. What about the refs decision last week with warmsley retaliating and didn’t get sin binned or ban
