Are you able to also upload the most recent one from McGuire? I honestly think it's comparable.

Paul Crawley on NRL 360 says the integrity of the MRC is “shot to pieces” and are applying double standards.

From looking at the 2 incidents, I’d say the intent was comparable, but Young got a better dig.

Here’s the bit that really pisses me off - I HATE this kind of crap in the game. But if you are a young ‘hard man’ forward coming into grade, and rep players use this kind of tactic without any real sanction, why would you not use it? The example is set, and reaffirmed in both of the McGuire incidents.

Surely the NRL is taking the piss?

The Walker one is definitely the lesser of the two McGuire incidents. The Munster one was deplorable and the equal of Young.

He is absolutely correct.

Yeah, agree on this. They argued there is no footage but you see his finger in his eye.

Seems to be getting plenty of attention in the media and rightly so.

It's pretty indefensible.

100%

This should should be suspensions on Young’s level
If not more
You have to get this **** out ASAP
Hard to do that when the MRC are offering up such wildly inconsistent gradings
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers and Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

Agree. Walker incident was definitely a lower grade than Young's. You could argue they got that one right. It's McGuire's earlier incident on Munster that was the problem. It was virtually identical to Young's incident yet it was 2 grades lower charge.

But what does the MRC do? Give McGuire a higher grade charge than is justified for the latest one because they got the earlier one wrong?

If a player comes in with a swinging arm/high shot, and knocks a bloke out, should he be charged greater than if he did exactly the same and the player was abel to play on?? Intent is the same, risk is the same, result is different.

Thats essentially the argument - I believe form watching those 2 incidents of Young vs McGuire#2 that the intent was the same, but Young 'found the hole' faster than McGuire. McGuire had a decent root around looking for it, making it look more like a face rub, but he was definitely looking for the eye, he just didnt find it as well.

What is mind boggling is that he is stupid enough to keep doing it - not only after his Munster incident, but within a short space of time after that was re-highlighted in comparison to the Young charge. What an absolute muppet.
