There have bee some strange selections by Bennett this year
 
De Belin has fgailed in his bid to have his dangerous contact charge down graded. he's suspended for 4 weeks
 
Let's see how many touches he can rack up.
Joke Drums GIF by Bax Music
 
There is no way Holmes should get off if their defense is based on this. Holmes was jumping off the ground for starters, his feet were in the air at contact.

8.15pm: O'Toole is giving his final submissions on behalf of Holmes.

“It is my submission that the contact between my client and Jayden Campbell should be low force, rather than moderate. My client did not intend to make contact with the head or neck of Jayden Campbell and would not have if Jayden Campbell didn’t lower his body height as he received the ball from Tanah Boyd and prepared to pass to Jojo Fifita.”
 
8.40pm: Valentine Holmes has been UNSUCCESSFUL in his downgrade - he will miss four matches in a huge blow for the Cowboys. Holmes will miss the remainder of the regular season.
 
Woooooooo. Dare I expect a fair game on Saturday?
 
This is what JD said about Ilias

“His temperament showed why we believe he is going to be the best halfback the club has had for a long time.”

Reynolds to post the Michael Jordan meme on instagram imo.
