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

I thought 3 weeks for Papa and 1 for Jack and Hodgson are about right in the current circumstances. Jack was borderline and I thought the sin bin may have been sufficient punishment, but no need to take the risk to challenge. But compared to the past, Kaufusi only got 2 weeks for a deliberate elbow...

They were different types of offences though. The danger of Maguire was the dropping of his weight. Think they call it a hip drop or something.

Re: 2021 NRL Round 10: Teams and Game Day

**** is going on? It’s like that golf thing someone mentioned the other day.

The NRL set an edict and the players are like “don’t hit high or commit foul play, don’t hit high or commit foul play...”
Next minute bam high tackle or foul play.

Great work by the team to hang tough in a difficult situation. Less good work to end up in that position in the first place against the likely spooners.

I think you mean when an act of foul play is committed? Because often HIAs occur through a head clash or when the defender puts his head on the wrong side and collects a hip.

Re: 2021 NRL Round 10: Teams and Game Day

Doing it at the judiciary alone doesn’t solve the problem. This is largely because of concussion rules which means teams are losing players in game far more often. There needs to be an in game balancing mechanism that penalises the offending team at the time. But yes, longer suspensions are part of ...
