Yeah, was just joking. Gallop seems to be getting blamed for everything so thought I would join the bandwagon

Is the shoulder charge still allowed in the English Super League?

:P Nah, the Super League banned it after it was banned in Tests (once again thanks to the Antipodean members of the RLIF).

The SL hasn't had much of a problem with shoulder charges, so the ban was quite disappointing. They've been very tough on high shots for quite a while now, such as red cards for shoulder charges that make head contact.

Rugby league is getting to soft, what are they trying to do turn into touch football or worst Rugby Union? Lol

Is Sam completely happy with the Frawley[Raiders U20s] incident or would he be unhappy that he hadn't had the chance to commit the act??

Andrew everingham charged for a shoulder charge, yet billy slater's shoulder charge on david simmons when he scored the try was once again overlooked. He also led with the knees again after a Penrith try was scored and nothing was said about it
