Barrie McDermott dismayed by Sam Kasiano yellow card decision

Things are going great for Leeds Rhinos against Warrington Wolves.

On the back of a sensational performance last week against Huddersfield Giants, Blake Austin has dominated discussions due to his uncertain future. He started this game again with a point to prove. A lovely dummy carved open Warrington. He found support in Aidan Sezer who found Sam Walters to score.

After defending their own line for a set Leeds marched down field with an excellent set of six and on the last tackle Sezer and Richie Myler combined feed Ash Handley to score.

A sensational start continued as Leeds looked too fast for Warrington. Again a try for Ash Handley as Leeds attacked wide with Cameron Smith’s looping ball found Rhyse Martin who put Handley in for a second.

Already on top, the Rhinos now have a man advantage after a yellow card for Sam Kasiano for a shoulder charge.

The incident came after Nene MacDonald brilliantly took Josh Drinkwater’s kick and burst through the middle of the field.

On a quick play the ball and a six again, Handley carved through and Kasiano was desperate to stop him but hit him with a shoulder charge.

Chris Kendall subsequently brandished a yellow card and gave Kasiano his marching orders for 10 minutes.

However, Barrie McDermott was dismayed by the decision saying it was “never” a yellow card.

“It’s not a yellow card. Ruby League is a contact sport and that’s why we like it because a big man like Kasiano can make an impact.

“He’s come on off the bench. He’s trying to lift his team. Never in the memory of man is that a yellow card.”
