Warrington coach Tony Smith wants player protection
Warrington Wolves head coach Tony Smith has called for more protection for players after Matty Russell had to have his two front teeth removed.

The full-back, 21, collided with Widnes forward Macgraff Leuluai in their play-off win over the Vikings on Saturday and needed oxygen on the pitch.

Scotland international Russell left the field on a stretcher in a neck brace, but was cleared of serious injury.

"I don't think we're protecting our players," said Smith...

No, players haven't been protected for years...





Late hit in Sinfield the year before...

A lot of people are saying the game is too sanitised, accidents will always happen in a sport like this but surely it can be made any more safe than it already is?

Aww, did someone's fullback get hurted by the nasty man? Sad

"It's the worst signature I've seen. Its mix of homoerotic eulogising and pseudo-philosophical shite makes me sick. Since Hank has had this sig, SLF has gone down the toilet. I hate him. I can't stress that enough. I hope he gets banned." - Kevin Sinfield

Helmets, maybe? Some Shoulder Pads? Definitely a Cup! Oh, and some Elbow / Knee pads?

Could we also introduce long range Forward Passes? And a little break after every tackle, so we can decide what to do next? Oh and after every Try, can we just kick from under the Posts?

I think MY new version of the Sport will be so much safer and easier to watch!!

Dont remember smith saying this aftwr monaghan laid out sinfield with a flying headbutt at old trafford.

"He's the best coach I've had.His mix of man-management and his game plan is second to none.Since Brian has been in charge,we've been in every final so far.I love playing for him.I can't praise him enough,I've so much respect for him." Kevin Sinfield
