    I always wondered what Stephen King meant when he wrote that someone had a 'shit-eating grin'.
    Now I know

    Trainers should not be on the field during live play. Simple as that

    Piss em off

    Whiteheads a Pom. He'd have knocked on anyway.

    Its a simple solution isnt it? But when the rules committee consists of a small percentage of the nrl coaches, we have no hope

    Yep coaches want it and the Players Assoc will scream player safety.

    Just need to see the lack of attention in the media to see nothing's going to happen.

    Just watching the replay now and this dipshit is on the field right from the kickoff and is handing out drinks after the first tackle.

    He's on for the entire set of six, goes off, then is straight back for the full set the Roosters have the ball. Just standing back there until he gets hit with the ball.

    Blue shirt trainer comes on for the full third set, just wandering around at the back like the other dipshit in orange.

    Was watching NRL360 and then this came on. Thought I'd check out the first few minutes to see what prompted this dipshit to run onto the field. Turned out he was there the entire time.

    I hope you turned it off soon after. Rewatching a losing GF doesn’t sound like a good time.

    I'mma see how long before the Roosters have a full set without a trainer on the field. Orange bloke went off after the first two, blue guy has been on for the two after.

    Looks like I might end up watching the whole game. One of these f**kers runs out right at the start of every set. Just loiters around behind the play the ball.

    A perfectly reasonable request all things considered.

    He sounds like he's be an upgrade on Toddy.

    Tell him he can have two ice creams if he heads up the integrity unit.

    Its mental. The coaches are the last people who should be controlling the game

    They're always going to be in favour of whatever gives them an edge regardless of fairness or the good of the game

    I pretty sure the AFL just changed their rules to limit trainers on the field, because of similar events. (Don't really follow it closely enough)

    I hate AFL more than most but the above is correct. Trainers/runners can only come on in an AFL game now when their is a break in play (ie after goal is scored and have to be off the field before play starts again.

    We just need a rule trainers are only allowed on field in a break in play (ie after a try is scored) and when directed to come onto the field by an NRL official due to an injured player.

    If a trainer is on the field at any other time it is a penalty against his side. Simple rule that should have been brought in years ago.

    No sport in the world has trainers on the field trying to direct play, NRL doesn't need them on the field either.

    Agree with the above, NRL has to show leadership on this issue and tell the coaches were to go.

    Blue shirt (generally coaching staff) - message runner
    Orange shirt (physio) - medical
    Yellow shirt (generally S&C) - drinks dude / bench warm-up guy.

    And bileduct is right, the orange merkin is on the field from the f**king kick off and every Roosters attacking set. he was handing out some shit to a player after the very first tackle of the match

    The trainers are prob on the field to spot the other teams fullback and let the kicker know.

    I know it's usually supposed to be a painful thing but I enjoyed watching it again because it was a really good game. But could just be because masochism is pretty much a requirement of being a Raiders fan.
