    Stephen Scott should be sine die in my opinion for the cowardly act of kneeing a restrained player in the head the punishment is far to lenient . If young lads see this it will put them off playing our great game .

    Don’t know police aren’t involved. Emerson Whittel should go to the police himself and get justice.

    Steve Scott banned for three and a half months for kneeing another player in the head till his Jaw snaps …….. Far too lenient , I hope Emerson reports the incident to the Police as it was just out and out thuggery .
    R.F.L. you are an embarrassment to the sporting world .

    The RFL have made a mockery of the disciplinary process , they have done nothing to deter Fryston or other like minded teams from behaving in this appalling manner again , I agree with the other comments , their worst offenders should have been banned for life and the team should not allowed to take part in The Challenge Cup again.
