    It was good to see a bit of passion, not that it helped.

    Watmough was crucified by the refs all bloody night and the decisions against him were just horrible, no wonder he was frustrated.

    Maybe Choc and Ox should have a man hug and get over it and i'm sure they will - get over it that is, not so sure about the man hug.
    The game can be bloody frustrating but team member spats certainly aren't going to help our cause, but it was probably just a heated moment between a couple of fired up boys whose season is on the line.
    It at least shows that they are concerned about the team playing like a bunch of knobs.

    They were as bad as each other. Ox gifted a penalty on the line by diving into the ruck - something that has always been penalised whether legitimate or not. And Choc was standing to one side of the ruck when penalised. Sloppy, lazy and undisciplined, both of them. No doubt that frustration played a huge part but extra cracks got opened up by two of our most senior players.

    As Des said, the media will make something of it, but from my own experience, which is obviously a pretty low level, it would be unusual for a couple of blokes not to have a spat during a game. We even had a couple of punches thrown after 1 game this season haha
