    Ok with me, IMHO Jack Smith is a good referee.

    Thank goodness we only have R Hicks or J Child very infrequently in the Championship

    Does it matter who officiates ? If the officials are of a poor standard or a good standard then doesn’t that apply to both teams ?

    If it was a perfect world you’re obviously right Sinbad. However, I don’t think that players or referees  (or me) are perfect and we all can have a one-sided view of the game.

    He is but he hates Widnes for some reason.   We will get nothing off him mark my words.

    If we are worrying about the ref in a home game against Swinton, things must be bad! No ref hates Widnes!

    I don’t think the vast majority of fans – both Widnes and Swinton – are particularly worried about who the officials are for the game. Probably more worried about whether the team can turn around the disastrous start to the season.

    I still believe we can  turn  our form around and finish in the top 6 this season – but I may revise my view later today (again)!!!

    He is but 1) he hates Widnes for some reason. 2) We will get nothing off him mark my words.

    1) I would suggest there’s (more than) a hint of bias in your comments! What evidence have you to back up this ludicrous statement? 0% at a guess!

    2) A ref is not there to “give” you anything. He’s there to arbitrate in an unbiased manner, and I’ve every confidence that a certain Mr Smith will do that later today.
