Re: 2021 Rd 11 V Storm: Teams and Previews

People expecting Papalii to be suspended for quarter of a season for that shot are watching a different game to me. Deserved a penalty and probably a sin-bin. The send off was a clear result of policy-on-the-run by the NRL. 3 games seems reasonable. Who was expecting that? Umm, the people expecting...

Re: Canberra Raiders Josh Papalii, Jack Wighton and Josh Hodgson face bans

The issue I have is that a sin bin is a very serious penalty in itself. A team left short a player for 10 minutes can quite easily concede a few tries... in a world of set restarts etc etc it is much, much easier. So far we have seen 15 sin bins and two players sent off in this round, and there thre...
